Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in southern Africa, known for its impressive landscape and diverse fauna in parks, reserves and safari areas. On the Zambezi, Victoria Falls thunder down over 108 m into the narrow Batoka Gorge, where rafting and bungee jumping are offered. Downstream are the Matusadona and Mana Pools National Parks, where Hippos, Rhinos and various bird species live.

Zimbabwe is one of Africa’s most popular hunting destinations. Formerly known as Rhodesia, Zimbabwe is 150.820 km2 big , imbedded in between the Zambezi and Limpopo rivers. It is home to not only stunning savannahs and forests, but also large bodies of water such as Lake Kariba and the famous Victoria Falls.

Trophy hunting is possible all year round, but with the best hunting days during the dry, sunny winter months (May to November).

Most hunting takes place in three different types of areas, namely: government hunting areas, tribal hunting areas and private hunting areas (very few). Most of these areas are unfenced and open. This is pure Africa, wilderness as far as the eye can see.

Every hunter requires a hunting permit from the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority. Permits must be obtained before the hunt begins.

Also remember to bring new US dollar bills in cash – in case you don’t have access to an ATM or can’t swipe your credit card. The Zimbabwean Dollar is a very weak currency and not advisable to operate with.

Northern West Region: NGAMO SIKUMI Camp

Situated in the North-Western part of Zimbabwe, Ngamo shares an open border with the Hwange National Park. The concession was established by the Forestry Commission of Zimbabwe to generate revenue for conservation programs in the country’s indigenous forest areas through recreational hunting as well as photographic safaris.

Ngamo is one of the world’s finest dangerous game hunting safari destinations. The hunting area consists of 8,000 km2 of forest land and is the habitat of a prolific and diverse number of plants, birds and animal species. Species to hunt include: Lion, Leopard, Cape Buffalo and large numbers of plains game such as: Sable, Blue Wildebeest, Zebra, Impala, Kudu and Eland to mention but a few.

The permanent colonial-style camp has four thatched units sleeping two guests either twin or double. All chalets have en-suite bathrooms and share an open communal lounge and dining area. Although simple, the camp offers great comfort and delicious local cuisine. Laundry and housekeeping will be taken care of daily and the camp has a good WiFi connection.

The closest ports of entry to Ngamo hunting area are Bulawayo International Airport (BUQ) and Victoria Falls International Airport (VFA). The driving distance from Bulawayo or Victoria Falls airport to the camp would be approx. 3 hours due to the bad conditions of the roads.

Tsholotsho South

The San were the name givers of this area: “Tsoro o tso” – meaning the head of an elephant. This concession is home to large herds of elephants and not only in our opinion currently the best area in Africa to hunt big elephant bulls.

Tsholotsho shares a 47-mile unfenced border with the Hwange National Park. At 400.000 acres, this huge area has fantastic potential for big tuskers (Elephants) as well as Lions, Leopard, Cape Buffalo and limited plains game. The lodge consists of modern ensuite thatched canvas walled bungalows with all modern amenities such as WiFi and air conditioning. The dining and lounge area overlooks a fire pit from where one can view the waterhole. The closest port of entry is Bulawayo International Airport (approx. 2 hours drive after pick up).

Besides the excellent Elephant trophies Tsholotsho Campfire area produces, we have a partnership with the local community. There are several social responsibility programmes being funded by the revenue generated through the hunting safaris, such as a local school and clinic as well as water wells being drilled for the outlying communities.
