Hunt Grant’s Gazelle and Thompson’s Gazelle in Tanzania

This is the most affordable Tanzania plains game hunting safari that I have seen. You will hunt in a great area from a comfortable luxury camp and take some of the more affordable exotic plains game species such as Grant’s and Thompson’s gazelle, East African Impala, Cokes Hartebeest and Kirk’s Dik. One buffalo is available on trophy for this safari but is not guaranteed. But if you spot a shooter, or you knock out your plains game list early, they are available to hunt. 


The hunt will take place in Massailand and will be a safari that is like the ones taken in the past by Earnest Hemmingway and Robert Ruark. The terrain is generally flat but the rivers and drainages present small hills, bottom areas, and lookouts. The plains game hunting area is vast and encompasses 491,000 acres. There are many Maasai people in the area and the game mixes with their cattle as they have for thousands of years.

There are several great touring options that are easily added to this Grant’s gazelle and Thompson’s gazelle hunting safari. The Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti Plains to name just a couple of options. Mt. Kilimanjaro is a popular destination for those that are more adventurous and are in excellent physical shape.


This Hunt offers the following available species on quota:

  • 1 Grant’s Gazelle

  • 1 Thompson’s Gazelle

  • 1 East African Impala

  • 1 Cokes Hartebeest

  • 1 Kirk’s Dik Dik

If you are wanting species such as Lesser Kudu, Gerenuk and Fringe-eared oryx a minimum of a 10-day hunt along with a 21-day license must be booked. If those species are also on your desired species list, see the 10-day Maasailand plains game hunt listing on my website.


The PH has had a great success rate hunting exotic plains game over the last several years.  His clients take fully mature plains game trophies at significantly lower prices than offered by other outfitters in Tanzania. The well-maintained vehicles will be used to locate game on the vast Maasailand plains.

Once your quarry has been spotted, you will proceed to stalk them on foot. You will walk from 2-8 kilometers a day while hunting plains game in this region of Tanzania.  If you decide to hunt a Cape buffalo, you will use the vehicle to cut fresh buffalo tracks and then will proceed to track them on foot in the traditional manner. The Cape buffalo can grow exceptionally large in Maasailand and are known for their wide spreads but are not easy to hunt due to the wide-open plains that are prevalent in the area.


Although this is a wilderness hunt, you will stay in a 4-star tented camp. The lodging will consist of large East African style tents with in-suite showers and toilets. The tents will feature large single or double frame beds and mattresses with clean linens and blankets. The tents also feature windows, rugs, and complete floors. The camp has 5 tents each with a capacity to accommodate 2 people either on double beds or a large single bed.  The camp has a capacity of accommodating a total of 10 people all at once with 2 people per tent.

A maximum of 6 hunters can be accommodated at one time using 3 vehicles with 2 hunters on each vehicle for a 2x1 safari.  If on 1x1 safari only 3 hunters can be accommodated at once in the camp. There is a lot of game that is scattered over a wide area.

Maasailand Tented Camp Beds

Laundry will be done daily, and the service staff is always on call. Electrical power is provided by a generator. Internet and cell phone service is not available in camp. A satellite phone is available in camp in case of emergencies. For those of you that wish to stay in touch with your home or business, bringing a satellite phone would be a good option.

Maasailand Luxury Tent Camp Seating

Food will consist of 3 course dinners, picnic lunches and made-to-order breakfasts. Bottled water, non-alcoholic beverages are all available and included. The outfitter will stop at a liquor store if you want alcoholic beverages. You can import one bottle of liquor into Tanzania duty free. A waiter, butler and daily laundry service will be provided for your comfort and convenience.

The tents are furnished with either a large single bed or double beds with a chair and table for reading. Each tent contains an in-suite bathroom with a flush toilet inside and a hot shower.  


The outfitter has been hunting professionally in Africa for 27 years. He is very hands-on and personally conducts many of the hunts. His other PH also has been hunting dangerous game for several years and both are highly experienced plains game hunters.  You cannot be in better hands when hunting in a remote area than with this outfitter. The equipment is well-maintained, and the staff is well-trained.


The following additional costs apply:

  • Road Transfer Round Trip - $700

  • Dip and Pack - $1,200

  • Observers - $300 / Day per Observer

This hunt requires the purchase of a 10-day license even though the hunt duration is 7 days.  Dip and pack costs are based on the license and expected numbers of trophies that will be taken. Because most clients will harvest multiple species of plains game species on this hunt, the dip and pack cost for this hunt is $1,200.


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. If you flight arrives in the morning, you may continue on to the hunting camp. If you arrive later in the day, you will overnight in a hotel ($150-$350) in Arusha and wake up the next morning and drive 3.5 hours to the hunting concession in Maasailand.  An overnight stay in Arusha may also be necessary on the day of departure from camp.

So, what are you waiting for?  Isn’t it about time that you put some of Tanzania’s unique plains game species in your trophy room?

"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 was hunting with my son and my batchmate from school. We had an experience of a life time and will definitely repeat the experience again. The weather was perfect. We shot Kudu / Zebra / Wildebeest / Impala / Red Hartebeest / Blesbuck / a day of bird shooting." 

"We took back  memories for a life time  and will surly recommend the experience to other hunters."
