Dear community and especially sponsors of AH,

I’m looking for a hunt in autumn 2025. Target species should be leopard. My two oldest sons, next year 16 and 13, will join this trip like the other four safaris we’ve done so far. We hunted Zimbabwe and South Africa, each twice (trip reports are written on this side).

I’m a bit restricted with my budget since I’m trying to make one safari per year. That means expensive destinations like Tansania will be out of reach…
I already have a very good offer for leopard in Zim ( Matetsi), but with the restriction of not bringing in my own gun as a European, I still hesitate jumping on it (Last time in Zim the quality of the rental guns was not what I expected - a risk I don’t want to take when hunting leopard).

Please feel free to share your ideas and offers, I’m really looking forward to it.

As second option, if leopard is not doable, elephant could be a possibility to fit into budget.
Budget for the package is between 20 and 25k for Daily rates and trophy fee.

Best regards from Germany,

Agrarler
 
Good Day Agrarler

I would like to invite you to consider Tsala Hunting Safaris.

We own our property in Mozambique and have a long term concession in Zimbabwe.

I would like to recommend our Mozambique property for leopard.Our hunting area is 125 000 acres and borders Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe with no fences between us.Animals are free to roam an area of over 2 mil acres in our area.

The 13 day Leopard hunt is within your budget mentioned above.You will fly into Johannesburg and no other flight is needed as we will travel to the area by vehicle.

I will send you detail and a breakdown of the hunt on a pm.

You are most welcome if you have any questions.

Regards

Rouan

Hi Rouan, Do you hunt elephant in Mozambique or is that not possible? Us europeans struggle to get firearms into Zim!
 
Might look.up Gerhard at GPFootprintSafaris.com in RSA. He has great leopard hunts
 
Is leopard hunting in RSA allowed? My information was that the ministry closed it for no reasons…

Good Day Sir

We certainly do hunt elephant on our area in Mozambique.We have really good quality bordering Gonarezhou.Unfortunately the Ele is not importable into Europe or the US.

You are most welcome to contact me if you want any info on the area in Mozambique.

Rouan please PM me the total cost of a non exportable elephant in Moz. please as well as the average tusk weight please with the break out of day rates versus trophy fee
 
Lots of great resources here. On a tight budget I would also look up Wayne at Nyamazana for both your cat and elephant.
 
As above, I would give Wayne a call and see what he has. Yes in Zim but I am sure he will be able to find you a "proper" weapon to use. What he states is completely followed and true. No BS to get a deposit.

Good day Sir.

Trust you are doing well.

We offer some of the very best, fair chase leopard hunting Namibia has to offer together with good plains game hunting all round.
Please check my website at www.divansafaris.com or contact me at huntingdivan@gmail.com.

Yours truly.
 
Not sure this is directly addressing your question, but I’d strongly advise doing elephant now and leopard in the future unless you really really want a leopard and are more or less indifferent to a leopard.

An elephant hunt involves a lot of walking. A leopard hunt involves a lot of sitting absolutely still and quiet in a blind. Old men tend to be less suited to long walks than they are to long sits, so putting off ann elephant hunt for a leopard hunt may turn out to be a mistake.

And teenagers are a lot more suited to long walks than long sits. A father and his teenage sons are a lot more likely to enjoy an elephant hunt than a leopard hunt.

I am going with @Tsala for leopard in 2025! If budget for leopard is super tight I recommend reaching out to Liesl @Badger81 with Tokoloshe. They have fabulous areas, like hunting old Africa with Rourk and Hemingway only better! You will find they can offer you an incredible value on a Leopard hunt as well as Elephant!!!

Never thought about that but it’s definitely correct! The thing is: I REALLY want a leopard as long as it’s still importable to Europe/ Germany…

Thank you for the advice! I’m in discussions with Tsala too, had a very good and promising video call with Rouan. The problem seems to be that there are almost too many good offers once you start to ask…
