Zimbabwe

Once considered the jewel of Africa, this country unfortunately has undergone negative changes over the past 10 years. Plainsgame hunting here is only a shadow of what it once was; however, some bright spots remain and dangerous game hunting on government concessions and private conservancies remains strong. Elephant, Buffalo and Leopard populations continue to be solid and Zimbabwe should still be considered for these species. Victoria Falls, The Great Zimbabwe Ruins and other scenic wonders are a “must see” when visiting here.
