    Yes sir, you won't forget it- really a special hunt and fantastic trophy! Do check with Andrew Baldry in Zambia- he has the right to hunt an exceptional property in the Kafue area and his leopard are larger on average than the cats from the Luangwa blocks and I believe on par with the best areas in Zimbabwe. You might be surprised at his rates as well. Best of luck wherever you hunt!

    Ethiopia should get a mention for its huge, unique toms but it's pricey, the Masai, in addition, has some big cats that have gorged on livestock but are incredibly cagey.

    I WISH that I could afford Ethiopia but even if I could, Leopards from there aren't importable to the USA

    Not interested in Leopard hunting but I recently read in AHG (African Hunting Gazette) about a 190lb, 19" Skull Leopard hunted the Bubye Valley Conservancy
    I can't send a link but if you google African Hunting Gazette you should be able to find it

    Took mine in Namibia this past June. My guy has lots of cats in the areas he hunts. PM me if you’d like to talk about it.

    There are two main areas in Zambia. Luangwa has a very high successrate on leopards, but on average not the biggest ones (although big ones have been taken there). Kafue has maybe a little lower successrate, but produces huge toms. Kafue also has nice plains game not found together in many other places (huge sable, roan, oribi, hartebeest etc).
    If you want a reasonable chance on a big tom, you should not write off Zambia as a whole, but you should add Kafue in Zambia as an area to look into.

    Ernest @Spear Safaris, are these lowveld cats in the pics or from Tanzania?
    How is your new Tanz area for Leopard?

    Hi Neck Deep
    The pictures I posted were from the Lowveldt and Northern Limpopo.
    Tanzania I am hunting on Chunya Lukwati, it is a gret area for Leopard, they are probably a bit bigger than the average Leopard that you will find in Tanzania, especially the Selous ones. Please pop me a email and I will send you more info and photos. info@spearsafaris.com
