    Looking at booking a hunt in this area for June. Any info on trophy quality and numbers of Elephant, Buff, Sable and plains game would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time.

    If you are interested in hunting Matetsi I would contact one of these two guys.

    Tim Farren (Tim416 on Africa Hunting) Tim books on Matetsi One. Good guy, works with a proper operator.

    Russ has hunted the Matetsi area for years. He has quota on a couple of different blocks and can offer good insight to the situation there.
    Remember to book with a licensed Zimbabwe outfitter and PH when hunting in Zim.

    Hi Jeff

    The Matetsi Units are the best remaining wild, free range, fair chase hunting areas in Africa today. There is no doubt in my mind about that fact, this is true for all big game species. Matetsi Unit 5 is 390 Kilometers squared in extent.

    We book Unit 2, 5. Please let me know if you are still interested in hunting Unit 5?

    See the attached photo we took of a herd of 1000+ buffalo on the Unit 5 Parks boundary two weeks ago:
