Where can I hunt and expect to harvest a Honey Badger?
Long story.
I want my wife to go to Africa with me but she wants a Honey Badger!
I know there are none available in the East Cape so where else in SA or Namibia
can we go?

The Limpopo Province or Zimbabwe are good options.

I'm watching this thread too. Badger has been my call sign for over 15 years.

Hello fgold
I can help you with a honey badger! We are situated in the limpopo province in the heart of the Avocado valley. The honey badgers destroy the bee hives next to the fields that the farmes have.
Looking forward in hearing from you.

My son got his on Namibia a few years ago. Took a special permit in advance but our PH arranged it easily.

The easiest way to find them seems to be to go leopard hunting. My wife must have seen every honey badger in Africa eating her leopard baits.

Whatever vehicle you take to the hunting ground make sure there is room for the entire hunting party inside the vehicle. You don't want to ride in the back with the badger. The damn things stink to high heaven.

Just received this from Bossie at Limpopo Big Game Safaris.

Notice the date - taken this morning. I will be there in two weeks. Hope he enjoys the meals. I'm coming for him.

In Marula which is in the South Western area of Zimbabwe near Botswana there are plenty plus Honey badgers , so much so that every Leopard hunt you do one has to choose bait trees carefully to try outwit these buggers ( Badgers ) they are a absolute nuisance when they get on a bait . I have had them come into the blind from the back and the front which is hilarious when you cant see your hand in front of you and waiting for a Leopard....

You could hunt several plus Hyena and other nocturnal game ( Bush pigs, Civet and Genet cats ) at the same time .

Be happy to do this hunt for $ 400 a day which will be for the 2 of you together .

Regards

Wayne

@Jim Rea

Bossie does all the cats and night critters, including Serval. So unless you're set on going to Zim (which I wouldn't blame!) He would be worth the talk too. PM me if you want more info, or look for my report in a few weeks.

Serval is in a different area and badger is focus, so don't know if I will get to serval. We may try of time permits, but realistically it probably won't.

All of these animals are tough, I think. I saw one serval in 12 nights of hunting. Fortunately I got it.

I think honey badger is a bit easier, only because they will come to bait. Apparently serval won't.

Time for you to go back Edward. You quit Wally World so nothing holding you back! Mount a Honey Badger like you did the North American guy and have them facing off against one another!

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
