    For those interested in hunting a Elephant early next year 2020 February and March into April please contact me via email and let’s book dates particularly for February.. There is and has been a tremendous amount of Elephant movement as we speak . My first hunt starts on the 18th February. However I should have started beginning of February.. just about every day for the past 3 weeks there has been interactions between the villagers and raiding Elephants in the crops . I was called again last night at 11pm but as I am starting on Monday I did not attend to the scene ... my point is these bulls are all over this time of the year and it will be a great opportunity to take advantage of.

    Book this year for next year and I will give you a great deal $ 16500 all inclusive. Includes trophy fee / taxes / permit / scout fees / transfer and concession fees.

    Not included is observers at $150 a day each , gratuities, ivory registration and CITES tag $250 .. basic trophy field prep / salting and delivery to local taxidermist $500.

    how many days does $16.5k get you?

    seeing as most of us cannot bring our trophies back to the US from Zimbabwe, do we still need to pay the $750 in additional fees?

    Oh would this be an awesome hunt! If my daughter wasn’t so ill and we weren’t raising our youngest granddaughter, I would try very hard to do this. An elephant is the ultimate DG trophy. JMO

    As I stated, I have dreamed of hunting an elephant for as long as I've thought about hunting in Africa, even bought a .416 Rigby a couple of years ago just in case I ever got rich. The closest I realistically thought I was going to get was to live vicariously through my friend @Edge 's report. But this offer and a very wonderful wife that knows how much it means to me pushed me to realize that I only live once. So come February 2020 @Just Gina and I will get to experience one of my dreams!

    Congratulations my friend! You talked about an elephant hunt when we were @KMG Hunting Safaris back in 2017, Michelle and I are excited for you and @Just Gina!

    Counting down the days yet? We all expect a detailed report in early 2020!

    Let the preparations begin!

    Congrats! Going to be the experience of a lifetime (y) For both of you. Enjoy every moment, from the planning to the trip home. OK, maybe not the trip home, but everything in between :D
    You may even want to think about having your hunt filmed. I decided to do it on my ele hunt last year, but had some reservations because I’m really not comfortable being on camera, but it turned out to be a great decision. You two could capture your memories together and I bet it would be something you would cherish forever.
    Anyhow, really excited for the both of you and looking forward to the after action report :)

    As has been mentioned might this be available in 2021?? Im guessing there will always be some elephant causing issues with crop damage.
