Information on our pristine Leopard hunting area in Zimbabwe:
Our Leopard hunts are conducted in a pristine large hunting area of approximately 250 000 acres in Zimbabwe and has a 33.5km (20 mile) unfenced boundary with The Gona ReZhou National Park, which has had limited human interference. These free-roaming areas for wildlife attract the true hunters who enjoy the experience of true, fair chase hunting.
This spectacular area has historically been known for its genetically huge leopard and is the home of one of the biggest leopard populations.
There are very few places in Africa where one could comfortably have an opportunity to hunt and actually get a big leopard. This area is incredibly unique in that it is the largest safari hunting area bordering Gona Re Zhou. It has a vast network of beautiful natural pans and has a remarkably diverse habitat of forest areas, woodland, semi savanna and open grasslands.
We hunt 4 of the big five at this exceptional area. It is primarily a big game area, but it does have plains game such as kudu, zebra, eland, giraffe, impala, duiker, steenbok, crocodile, klipspringer and sable.
Leopard hunting information:
Extensive effort is taken in pre-bating and preparing for a Leopard hunt, weeks before the client arrives to ensure the success rate of the hunt.
The timing of the hunt is of utmost importance and is specifically planned so that the hunt takes place during the most favourable conditions, taking several factors, such as the moon phases into account.
Best Caliber and Ammunition for hunting Leopard:
Choosing the right calibre to successfully take the Leopard down is essential. Even though the leopard can be taken with calibers as light as a 7mm or .270, the legal minimum in some countries and most preferred caliber is a .375 rifle.
