    I 've hunted lemco and it's surroundings for over 18 years, in fact I am starting a leopard hunt there on the 18th April. I book several hunts/ year through the owners of Lemco. The area is fantastic, but as you know the success of your safari is directly related to the effort one puts in. When are you hunting there and with who? Perhaps I can give you a few pointers or advice, whatever it is worth......

    Formerly known as the Lemco safari area, the Bubye Valley Conservancy covers over one million acres of southern Zimbabwe. This renowned sweetveld region is privately owned and run, purchased by Liebigs (later Lemco) at the turn of the 20th century. It is where the great hunters of the late 1800's came to hunt. This Conservancy is made up of three areas consisting of the Main Conservancy, Ripple Creek and Malangani which have been hunted for the last twelve years. Bubye Valley can be reached in three hours by road from Bulawayo or by charter aircraft from anywhere in Zimbabwe.

    Having once been home to the largest and most diverse variety of game to be found in the country, the Conservancy has been restored to its' former splendor with the addition of Elephant and Zimbabwe's remaining Black Rhino population. Considered a premier hunting destination in Africa, the Bubye Valley is home to several exclusive private hunting camps that operate in this vast area with no internal fences. Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant, Rhino, Cheetah, in all over 30 species can be found roaming the reserve. Poaching has been on the rise in the Bubye Valley Conservancy due to human encroachment...
