This hunt is CITIES eligible but the lion is currently not importable into  Australia, France or the Netherlands.  Lion from Zimbabwe will be considered for import on a case-by-case basis by the USFWS.  You will need to demonstrate enhancement on the permit application.  Conservation Force can be engaged to assist with the permit application and the enhancement findings.

This outfitter has enjoyed better than a 80% success rate on this hunt in recent years!

There are a lot of lions here, including full-maned beasts of legend!

This is a hunt for a free–range trophy male lion in one of the better lion-hunting concessions in Zimbabwe. The amount of lions in this area is astounding!  The areas that you are hunting are an 8-hour drive south of Harare. The concession is close to Kruger National Park and 

Kruger Park hosts a high density of lions and many spill out of the park searching for new areas or following game!

The number of these permits are very limited.  Discount African Hunts is pleased to offer this Zimbabwe Lion Hunt in the US market as an exclusive agent.  You will only see this hunt listed here!

You will stay in a comfortable camp with en-suite bathrooms and all-around comforts to make your safari an unforgettable hunting experience.

These Zimbabwe Lion Hunts are being offered by a long-time established outfitter in Zimbabwe. Your hunt will be conducted and guided by a PH that works for one of the more established hunting outfitters in Zimbabwe. They have been in business in this area for several years and have an outstanding reputation. They have guided scores of hunters to successful outcomes on similar hunts in this very area.  The success rate on these hunts runs 90%+, due to the abundance of lions, limited annual permits and experience of the PH that will be guiding you.

Bait will consist of donkeys at $250 / each or Cape Buffalo at trophy fees.

Most lion hunts in Zimbabwe are only offered in conjunction with a full-bag 21-day safari.  Discount African Hunts is pleased to offer this Zimbabwe Lion Hunt as an exclusive 15-day hunt.

African lion hunting is under pressure from the anti-hunting establishment and is currently listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act by US Fish and Wildlife. Permits for importation into the Us are considered by the USFWS on an individual basis and require a showing of enhancement under Rule 4 (d). Those who are in the know are aware that the lion is not really endangered by hunting but from Africa’s expanding population and the corresponding loss of habitat and available prey. It is the hunter’s money that is funding the conservation programs that will save the lion from extinction.

With the closing of lion hunting in Botswana and imports of captive-bred being halted from South Africa, the availability of wild lions is shrinking rapidly, while the price is going up!

The time to take your Zimbabwe Lion Hunt is NOW, while you still can!

You should not put this hunt off!  This is one of the finest Lion hunting concessions in Zimbabwe!

"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 looked long and far for a good deal on a lioness hunt.  By far, Discount African Hunts had the best price.  I had the hunt of a lifetime and took a beautiful lioness at close range with my bow.  The Professional Hunter was first class, the lodge was first class and my whole experience was unbelievable.  I will book with John Martins when I return to Africa to hunt leopard  in Zimbabwe.

"I booked my crocodile hunt in Mozambique through Discount African Hunts. The hunt was great and my wife and I really enjoyed the service provided by the outfitter. Everything was done very professionally and the outfitter and his group went out of their way to provide us with a wonderful experience and a great time.

If we ever go back to Africa, I am sure that we will contact Discount African Hunts to set up another hunt with this outfitter."
