Best Countries to hunt Big Five
Ive been talking to a bunch of different outfitters and when I tell them I want to hunt trophy plains game, specifically kudu and zebra, they all quote me a low price in south Africa. Then, when I mention that I want to hunt Elephant, cape buffalo, and lion, and that I want the lion and elephant to be free range, I am told by almost all of them that I would have to go to Mozambique or Zimbabwe to hunt free range lion and elephant because the highest numbers of free range lions and elephant are in those two countries. All of this comes with a considerable markup and extra travel/trophy costs of course. Is what they are telling me true, or are they just trying to scam me? What country in Africa actually has the largest populations of free range elephant and lion? I always thought it was south Africa but apparently not.
