Hunting in Zambia

Zambia is a vast country of more than 751 000 sq km, half of which is pristine wilderness inhabited by some of the most diverse wildlife in Africa. What makes Zambia so distinct from other African hunting destinations is the zoning of land areas around the national parks as game management areas. The free movement of animals between the parks and the game management areas ensure a reliable supply of superior trophies. Altogether, national parks and game management areas represent about 33 per cent of Zambia's total land area, totalling over 164 000 sq km. The diversity of terrain includes river valleys, Kalahari Bushveld to the south-west, plateau woodlands throughout the interior, as well as swamps and extensive flood plain savannahs, thereby providing one of the most exceptional and exciting selection of trophy animals (35 species) to be found in a single African country.

The safari hunting season extends throughout the dry season from the cool, dry months of May through July to the dry, hot months of October and into November. By late November, when the first rains fall, safari camps close.

The concessions
Our hunting area is the West Petauke Game Management Area. This area, 4550 sq km in extent, is unique in the sense that it provides a wide range of habitats from plains on top of the Muchinga escarpment mountaineous areas in the hills, forests on the slopes and thick riverine bush on the flood plains of the Luangwa River. This combined with natural clear springs, hot water fountains and mountains streams makes it ideal to accommodate a variety of species. West Petauke is famous for excellent Leopard, Roan, Buffalo, Kudu and very good Lion.
