I understand your desire to hunt a buffalo as it’s an epic adventure. You will not likely find the large free range areas without malaria. My recommendation in your situation is to find the best, near free range, buffalo hunt on a game ranch in RSA. This way you have a good hunt and are safe.Hi there,
I have been to Africa once and I eager to return as soon as possible. Back in 2009 I visited the Eastern Cape for some plains game hunting. A year later twins arrived and I was stuck in the family situation. Anyway, I could really use some advice from locals and more experienced Africa hunters, since I now would like to try some big game hunting. My only problem is that I have a heart condition, and my physician have advised me to avoid sub-tropical areas with malaria. As far as I understand, that excludes Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia (Caprivi strip) and Tanzania. I am interested in the Cape buffalo but a non-trophy elephant (Tuscless, non-exportable or PAC) could also be of interest. I found some outfitters in RSA outside malaria area, but I would really love to hunt in a non-fenced area. What alternatives are there, if any?
As a backup I have the option of going to the NT Australia, but that's not a Cape buffalo.
I really appreciate any advice.
