This is an incredible opportunity to hunt hippo in South Africa at a great price!  This renowned Big 5 outfitter has put together a great package for the hunter that wants to hunt a trophy bull hippopotamus while you still can.  With it being difficult to get trophies out of Mozambique, South Africa stopping issuance of PAC hippo CITES export permits and the European Union tightening the issuance of newly required import permits, the places where you can hunt and import a trophy hippo are disappearing rapidly.

 Hunters have enjoyed a 100% success rate on this hunt over the last several years.  This hunt will take place on a 12,000 acre privately owned concession that is in the Limpopo Province near the Botswana border. The nearest airport is Polokwane.

The concession has a dammed river and features 6 km of river frontage in the rainy season and 4 km in the dry season.  The lake is good sized and has multiple hippo bulls and lots of trophy crocodiles. This is the perfect safari to hunt your trophy bull hippo and then spend a few days relaxing and hunting plains geame from your luxury lodge.

Limpopo is known for its quality trophy plains game hunting and especially for its trophy Greater Southern Kudus.

I believe that this is one of the best areas to hunt hippo in all of South Africa.  There are over 30 hippos on this concession, including some big ones.  You can hunt the trophy hippo of your dreams right here!

Hunting methods will consist of driving out to look for bull hippos and then making a plan for stalking and getting into position for the shot.  Shooting opportunities for the hippo can occur on land or in the water.  A well-placed shot will ensure that your trophy hippo makes the trip back home to your game room!  Your South African PH will be highly experienced and be familiar with the area being hunted.   Hippo hunting in South Africa doesn’t get any more exciting than this!  Other animals are available during this safari and can be viewed on the price list below:

After you take your hippo you can add a Cape buffalo bull for only $9,000! Expected size range ia a hard bossed bull from 37-42".

If you want to insure that you get a good Hippo for your game room, and want to hunt an area that still allows you to export the hippo, then this is the hunt you have been looking for!

"In August 2014 I took a lioness hunt with Discount African Hunts in the Northwest Province of South Africa. The PH's worked hard to customize the hunt for me as I wanted a challenging stalk ending with taking the lioness at close range by an open sighted double rifle. They exceeded my expectations as 12 miles of tracking ended with me shooting the highly agitated lioness at a distance of 25 yards with a couple of rounds of 450 NE".

"I highly recommend a lioness hunt with Discount African Hunts."

'It was the most exciting hunt I have ever been on. We stalked a small bachelor group for a few days before I shot a mature cape buffalo with my Browning 375 H&H.'

'This was my third hunt with Discount African Hunts and each one has been fantastic.  I don't think I would book my future African hunts with anyone else.'

"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."
