Safari Information

About Hunting in Tanzania

tanzanialionSpear Safaris has partnered with Mcallum Safaris in the South West of Tanzania. The renowned Lukwati / Chunya/Msami blocks form part of the area that encompasses 4 adjoining, 2 000 00 acres in Hunting blocks, making this a massive and diverse area, producing excellent quality on Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Sable and Roan to mention just a few species. The concession presents some excellent, old Africa style hunting, in a setting of Luxurious tent style camps. This is one of the premier hunting companies in all of Tanzania, with no compromises in quality of equipment or back up services. Hunting commences on 1 July where weather will be very pleasant, but could still be slightly wet with long grass.

Tanzania, especially the West, is truly a wilderness experience! There are no resident people in the area, and the wildness is very apparent. Serengeti tours can also be arranged before and/or after your safari. We can also offer Hunting in Masai-land for the Typical Masai species, as an add on to your Big Game hunt.

Tanzania is one of the last outposts of hunting in Africa. You will hunt on a free range area of approximately 2 000 000 acres with pristine natural fauna and flora. The area is exceptionally good for Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Sable, Roan, Kudu, Warthog, Bushpig, Zebra, Lichtenstein Hartebeest and quite a few more. A short charter flight of 1;45 minutes is most convenient to get from Arusha to the hunting area. A drive into camp can also be done but can take a lot of your valuable time. The three camps are located on the banks of permanent springs, providing an unforgettable African wilderness experience. We provide 24/7 Electricity, provided by solar as well as gas Generators.
