This is your chance to hunt dangerous game in Tanzania in one of the great lion, leopard and buffalo hunting areas in all of Africa!  The full bag safari will take place in central Tanzania on a 1,500 sq. mile concession that borders Ruaha National Park and is part of the Rungwa ecosystem.  All areas that will be hunted are free-range.  This area is wild and your 21 day safari will be similar to Roosevelt’s and Hemmingway’s adventures in Africa.  The area is comprised of typical bush terrain, is generally flat and has one large river running through it.  The camp is located on the banks of this river.


This outfitter has had a success rate of 70% over the last five years on mature lions and a nearly perfect record on big leopards.  His clients take fully mature lions that comply with Tanzania’s regulations that only male lions that are 6 years of age or older may be taken.  This is a good area to hunt lions, as there are a lot of lions in this area.  There are also a lot of big leopards in the area and you will experience multiple cats on bait during this safari.  This is the perfect safari to bring a cameraman along on, as both cats will be shot during the daytime hours.  You will cover a lot of ground via the comfortable land cruisers to collect, hang and check baits consistently until the focus is narrowed to one actively feeding trophy male cat.  The outfitter is an expert on the use of trail cameras on bait and these methods will be used to monitor the bait stations for big cats..  The outfitter has a proven track record of helping his clients kill trophy lions and leopards.

There are limited opportunities to take elephant in this area, but if an old legal elephant is encountered, the elephant may be harvested at the PH’s discretion.

Full Bag Leopard Trophy in TanzaniaFull Bag Tanzania Lion Trophy

Cape Buffalo (3), sable, roan and other plains game may be taken on this hunt.  These animals will be utilized as bait for your leopard hunt.  A list of trophy fees is available below:


Although this is a wilderness hunt, you will stay in a 3-star tented camp.  The lodging will consist of large East African style tents with in-suite bathrooms.  The tents will feature frame beds and mattresses with clean linens and blankets.  The tents also feature windows, rugs and complete floors.  Laundry will be done daily and service staff is on call at all times.  Electrical power is provided by a generator.  Internet and cell phone service are not available in camp.  A satellite phone is available in camp in case of emergencies.

Food will consist of 3 course dinners, picnic lunches and made-to-order breakfasts.  Bottled water, beer, wine and ice are all available and included.

This Tanzania outfitter has been hunting professionally in Africa since 2003.  He is very hands-on and personally conducts more than half the hunts.  His other PH has been professionally hunting for over 20 years and both are highly experienced lion hunters.  You cannot be in better hands that when dangerous game hunting in a remote area with this outfitter.  Their equipment is well-maintained and the staff is well-trained. 


You will take KLM airlines into Kilimanjaro International Airport.  Your PH will meet you at the airport in Kilimanjaro, where you will be driven an hour and 15 minutes to Arusha.   Once in Arusha, you will overnight in a hotel ($165-$350) and wake up the next morning and drive to the hunting concession.  An overnight stay in Arusha may also be necessary on the day of departure from camp. Charter flights are also available from Arusha to the camp and back.  Prices for an unshared plane run around $4,500.  Possible sharing coordination of hunts can lower this cost.


So what are you waiting for?  Isn’t it about time that you put some majestic trophies in your game room?

"I would recommend this hunt although I would recommend John at Discount African Hunts even more. Areas can get hot and cold but John always knows the hot spots to send hunters." 

"Totally recommend!"

"First, I wanted to tell you the buffalo hunt with the outfitter you booked me with was great! The PH took me to a farm where there was a good herd of buffalo and I shot a 40” old dagga boy. I could have taken another one a bit wider, 42”, with hard bosses but he did not have that old rough beat-up look I was after."

"I would Highly recommend my PH and Discount African Hunts. John got me a great deal with a top of the line outfitter. They both went out of their way to make sure my hunt and everything else about it was great."
