Are his Leopard Hunts near their concessions?I personally think Nick Nolte is the best leopard man in Africa. His success rate is around 90%. Shot opportunities are north of that. His concessions are in the ranch country of central Namibia near Omaruru. I have hunted with him on two occasions (including a leopard) and he and his lovely bride run one of the most comfortable camps in Namibia.
That should be true of nearly all operators who specialize in leopards. Though it is also quite common for the other trophy species you may be after on the leopard hunt to be part of the bait string as well. Indeed, I think zebra is the very best thing you can hang for leopard. But most reputable outfits are not going to charge you for the non-trophy warthog and impala that are hung for bait.To clarify my comment above about the baits, we did not have to pay extra to shoot animals off quota to use for bait. The baits were included in the hunt. Whether or not you have to pay extra for the baits is a question that should be asked of any safari company you choose. Paying trophy and quota fees for bait animals in some of these areas can add up quickly.

A final comment. There are no "deals" when it comes to leopards. I have a dear friend who has failed on four successive safaris to get a his cat. That is around sixty days in a blind. He has always fallen prey to the cheaper hunt rather than use one of the few real experts. He hasn't saved much money.
