Follow along as Limcroma Safaris embark on another great adventure with long time friends and clients in pursuit of leopard and hippo in Zimbabwe!
Hunting in Zimbabwe offers a great spectrum of opportunities. Follow us on this Zimbabwe hunting safari adventure of a lifetime after 2 of the dangerous seven, hunting leopard and hunting hippo. Traditional leopard bait hunting in Zimbabwe allows you to see a great deal of country side. Preparing several bait spots and servicing and checking the baits daily allows for very exciting scenarios and using the available spoor and trail cameras to put together a picture of what had happened at the site the night before can reveal anything from small critters like civet and honey badger to epic fights between hyenas and lion, or if everything worked as planned, the all illusive big tom leopard feeding on the bait. Preparing leopard blinds in Zimbabwe entail building a shooting screen and then clearing a foot path to a hidden blind, further away from the bait site to leave the immediate area as undisturbed as possible. Leopard hunting brings many highs and lows, and sometimes many long days, and nights. Checking baits all day, and then perhaps sitting in a blind through the night is not an uncommon thing whilst hunting elusive big leopard in Zimbabwe.
Lake Kariba and the surrounding local people make hippo hunting in the region an unforgettable one. The lake in all its glory and the people gather meat and rounding up after hearing shots in the area is truly a special moment in itself and certainly brings a whole new element into hippo hunting. Using fisherman boats to cross the water or recovering a hippo in the water is sure to be an adventure in itself!
Limcroma Safaris offers a wide variety of leopard and hippo hunting opportunities catering to their clients specific needs.
Traveling in fisherman boats with two extra passengers solely to drain the water from inside the boat is not for everyone. Limcroma Safaris will take care of your every need, whether you are a novice hunter looking to experience an African adventure for the first time, or if you’re a seasoned African hunter looking for a more challenging experience, Limcroma Safaris offer leopard and hippo hunts to families and couples as well as the hard core trophy hunter.
