THE HOME OF AFRICAN DREAM HUNTING IN ZIMBABWE
Since the 11th century, present-day Zimbabwe has been the site of several organised states and kingdoms as well as a major route for migration and trade. The British South Africa Company of Cecil Rhodes first demarcated the present territory during the 1890s; it became the self-governing British colony of Southern Rhodesia in 1923. In 1965, the conservative white minority government unilaterally declared independence as Rhodesia. The state endured international isolation and a 15-year guerrilla war with Black Nationalist forces; this culminated in a peace agreement that established universal enfranchisement and de jure sovereignty as Zimbabwe in April 1980. Zimbabwe then joined the Commonwealth of Nations, from which it was suspended in 2002 for breaches of international law by its then-government, and from which it withdrew in December 2003. The sovereign state is a member of the United Nations, the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the African Union (AU), and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA). It was once known as the “Jewel of Africa” for its prosperity.
Hunting Zimbabwe’s vast game reserves and concessions can be a challenge for even the most experienced hunter. Hunting areas are typically one of three different types; governmental, tribal, and private, all of which have their own unique rules. Most of these areas encompass thousands of acres and are non-fenced and open. Hunting areas are mostly mopane forest and dry, grassy savanna but in the Western part of the Matabeleland there are Valleys and hills with seasonal rivers winding through them. The privately owned land has three main dams where animals come to drink in the early mornings and late afternoon with baboon congregating around the watering holes in midday. Hunting Zimbabwe is accomplished primarily on foot and we practice fair chase hunting – however, please note, the terrain can be rugged and can at the time be physically demanding. Tracking Elephants for miles and miles or getting onto the fresh tracks of Dugga boys is what we are here for.
A lot of doubt arise from Clients all over the world regarding hunting in Zimbabwe that has heard stories of corruption and bribery among parks board members for permits
