Safari Information

About Hunting in Tanzania

tanzanialionSpear Safaris has partnered with Danny Mcullum Safaris in the South West of Tanzania.The renowned Lukwati / Chunya blocks form part of the area that encompasses 4 adjoining 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 have also managed to secure a working relationship with R4 in the Selous Game reserve, for a Safari that will not break your Budged. R4 is a great area between the Ruhaha and Rufiji rivers. The area is not as good as the Southern blocks but hunting is great at an affordable price. Both areas produce good Leopard, with R4 producing Monster Crocodile.

Accommodation

Tanzania is one of the last outposts of hunting in Africa. You will hunt on a free range area of approximately 500 000 acres with pristine natural fauna and flora. The area is exceptionally good for Leopard, Buffalo, Hippo , Crocodile, Nyassa Wildebeest, Kudu, Warthog, Impala, Lichtenstein Hartebeest and Waterbuck. Additional species include Lion, Elephant, Reed buck, Sable and Eland. A short charter flight of 50 minutes is required to get from Dar es Salaam to the hunting area. The camp is located on the banks of the Ruhaha and Rufiji River, offering magnificent views of the African sunset and Hippo frolicking nearby. The Rufiji river also offers excellent tiger fishing.
