These elephants are non-exportable bulls that are older and will be hunted on a 250,000-acre concession near Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. This hunt has seen 100% success in the past. This once-in-a-lifetime adventure is offered at a great price so don’t miss out!

About the Elephant:

Earth’s largest land animal is the African elephant, which can weigh up to 14,000 pounds and males can grow taller than 10 feet high at the shoulder. Their impressive tusks can reach lengths over 10 feet long. They also sport giant ears which are used for temperature regulation and long trunks that they use for a myriad of tasks including food retrieval, water consumption, and communication with other elephants in their herd. They almost exclusively eat grasses, leaves, and bark and can consume up to 300 pounds of vegetation per day. You can expect to harvest a bull under 30 pounds. 

The Hunting Area and Terrain:

This concession spans over 250,000 acres outside of Victoria Falls. The area varies between thick bush to open countryside with rolling hills. There is a year-round water source with one of the large rivers that cuts through the concession as well as many other smaller streams that flow through the area. On many ridges in the concession, there are patches of thick forest. This outfitter has been hunting this area for 7 years and currently holds exclusive rights to hunt this concession.

Hunting Seasons:

This hunt is available during  March and April. These two months ensure that you’ll be coming at just the right time to harvest a bull. 

About the Outfitter:

This outfitter has been in the hunting industry for over 35 years and has always provided high-quality hunts at an incredible value. They specialize in Zimbabwe hunts and have a great reputation for producing big-game trophies. Their PHs have been lifelong hunters and have a passion for the bush. This combined with years of experience behind each of them is key to making a successful, enjoyable, and memorable hunt you’ll treasure for years to come.

Elephant Hunt Lodge and Accommodations:

This 3-star permanent lodge features multiple chalets with en-suite bathrooms. They are well-appointed and comfortable. It is a convenient drive of only 45 minutes out of Victoria Falls, so no long drives are necessary!

The lodge sits on the top of a small hill overlooking a lake and the bush down below. The beds are very comfortable and meals are very good. Cell and internet service are available while in camp. 

A Typical Day Hunting Elephants:

You’ll first wake up and enjoy a light breakfast with your PH before heading out on a truck to search for fresh tracks. You’ll drive internal roads inside the concession and boundary roads to check for new tracks entering the hunting area. Villagers inside the concession also are watchful and let your PH know if they’ve seen recent signs of elephant activity. Once new tracks are found, the real hunting begins. You’ll get out and start tracking your elephant on foot. You should be prepared to walk the majority of the day, as on average you can track 2-3 different bulls per day all on foot. Once hunting is done for the day, you’ll head back to camp for a meal and to rest before the next day’s hunt. This hunt has seen 100% success in the past as well, showing just how many bulls traverse this concession. 

Once you successfully track and down your bull, you can continue hunting off the price list below or visit local attractions such as the National Park or Victoria Falls.

  • 375H&H with 1-9 Swarovsky

"This was my first trip to Africa and can positively say it will not be my only one. Words simply can not describe the events of the hunt.  I hunted with both longbow and compound and took a total of 12 animals.  I speak volumes to Discount  African Hunts. These guys know the ins and outs.  Thank you for my first Amazing African Adventure!"
