The Free-Range Lion Hunting Area

This is your chance to Hunt Lion in Tanzania in one of the great lion hunting areas in all of Africa!.  The lion hunt 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.  This area is wild and your 18 day safari will be similar to Roosevelt’s and Hemmingway’s great adventures in Africa.  The area is comprised of typical bush terrain and savannas, is generally flat, and has one large river running through it.  The camp is located on the banks of this river.

‚ÄčThe Free-Range Lion Hunt

This outfitter has had a success rate of 67% over the last five years.  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.  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 leopard. The outfitter is an expert on  using trail cameras in conjunction with baiting for big cats..   This Tanzanian outfitter typically experiences multiple lions on bait and provides a superior hunting experience for his clients.  The outfitter has a proven track record of helping his clients kill trophy lions.  If you want to get your lion hunt on film, this is the hunt to do it on, as 100% of the cats are taken during daylight hours.

Cape Buffalo (2), 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:

The Lion Safari Camp

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 is 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.

The Free-Range Lion Outfitter

The lion 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 lion hunting in a remote area with this outfitter.  The 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 a majestic lion in your trophy room?

"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."

"Talk about dreams being handed to you!!  From John's recommendation to stay at the Afton Guest House to the outfitter he booked me with, I was treated like royalty.   Next year's hunt won't require research past his website.  Thanks John."

"I booked a plains game hunt in South Africa through Discount African Hunts.  The price was half of what other outfitters were selling the same package of animals for.  After being assured by John Martins that this offer was for real I went ahead and booked.  Everything turned out just like I was told and I took 7 beautiful trophies on the trip of my lifetime.  Don't let the low prices hold you back.  I am sure I will never take a hunt of this quality again at a price like I paid. My hunt was awesome!"
