    Zambia as well as Tanz can be good like everything it boils down to how good the area is, SA also have great hunts in certain areas so do Namibia and Mozie.

    Decide what you would like from your safari, and remember.... The cheapest deals are not always the best.

    Talk to references (multiple) and above all enjoy it is the best bang for your buck! (experience wise!)

    My best always.

    Cape Buffalo are "huntable" in most countries in Southern Africa. Add Zim to Jaco's list above.

    Was just looking at some offerings in Zimbabwe for Buffalo that were being advertised as "Non exportable".
    As Jaco says, be cautious about focusing on price alone.

    There are tons of good operators.

    What are you looking for in a hunt?
    How many days?

    These are some good operators that have reasonable prices.

    Martin Pieters Safaris: Martin posts on AH as Marty. The Omay is a great area for buffalo and Martin offers some good deals.

    Maba'lengwe: Tim Farren posts on AH as Tim416. Matetsi Unit 1 is another great area for buffalo.

    CM Safaris: Buzz Charlton posts on AH. They have some great areas.

    These guys are reputable Zim operators.

    My first buffalo hunt was in Tanzania. There are some great areas and old East African style safaris. Prices in Tanzania has increased dramatically over the past several years.
