The Zambian Sable
The sable found in Zambia is known as Zambian Sable (aka the West Tanzanian or West Zambian sable) and is found north of the Zambezi river.
The Sable Hunting Area
Your hunt for Sable in Zambia will occur on a privately-owned 12,000-acre reserve located on the Zambezi Plateau in southern Zambia, 30 km east of Kalomo Town. This private hunting reserve was developed over 10 years ago and now boasts over 160 head of sable. The area consists of pristine miombo woodlands, forests, and thickets.
The Zambian Sable Hunt
Your sable hunt will occur on a private reserve of 12,000 acres. A typical hunting day will begin by driving to an area that sables tend to frequent and then getting out and scouting on foot until a suitable sable bull is spotted. Then you will proceed to stalk to within comfortable shooting range of the sable and hopefully, your sable trophy bull will soon be in the salt!
Other species are available on this hunt including Crawshaw Defassa Waterbuck, Lichtenstein Hartebeest, Roan, Chobi Bushbuck, Puku, Sharps Grysbuck, Common Reedbuck, Nyala, Oribi, Blue Wildebeest, Greater Southern Kudu, Impala, Warthog, Common Duiker, and Bushpig.
The Sable Hunting Camp
During your hunt for sable in Zambia you will stay in a 3-star tented camp set deep in the Zambian bush. The camp receives its power via electrical generators. Hunters will stay in separate permanent African-safari-style tents with ensuite bathrooms. These tents feature comfortable bedding and offer an authentic African safari experience. Using either solar or generator power charging systems can charge your cameras and other devices. Cellular phone service and internet service are available in the camp.
Meet & Greet
Guests fly into Livingstone, Zambia. The outfitter’s staff will personally meet and greet you in Livingstone at Harry Mwanga Nkumbula international airport
You will need to book your flight from your home country to Johannesburg (O.R Tambo international airport). From there you will need to book a connecting flight to Livingstone (Harry Mwanga Nkumbula international airport) Zambia. The outfitter recommends booking with South African Airways as it allows for the transportation of rifles. Persons under the age of 18 traveling to and from South Africa need additional documentation!
Standard legislation pertaining to the carriage of weapons and ammunition for each destination will apply. Passengers entering South Africa with onward international flights may have their firearms and ammunition checked through to their final destination. Be aware that such firearms and ammunition may be blocked by airport baggage screening staff for inspection, which will require the airline to page each passenger to proceed to a designated baggage reconciliation area, where you will be required to open any bags containing ammunition for inspection. Please ask to have your rifle checked directly to Livingstone (Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport) Zambia.
Visas are required for most passports. Most visas can be purchased at the airport or border in United States Dollars cash. Keep a flight or tour itinerary and / or copy of air ticket handy. The outfitter will send you a letter stating you will be hosted by them in Zambia.
Departure from camp is planned for the early morning after breakfast. We would have to leave early since it’s a 5 hour drive from Camp. You can either choose to overnight in Livingstone at the Avani Victoria Falls Resort or Royal Livingstone hotel or transfer directly to your pre-scheduled international connecting flight back home via Johannesburg (O.R Tambo international).

"I recommend you booking a dream hunt in Africa with John Martins. It's first class it's professional and what John says will happen, it will happen!"
"The hippo and croc hunt was good to great -- People make the hunt and from the booking agent to the outfitter YOU COULDN'T ask for a better hunt! Very few hunting ads tell you what you will get and then deliver it with a smile and extras. Both ends are honest and great to deal with."
"John Martins tries his hardest to get you a great price and your animals with honest outfitters!"
