Whether you are on your first safari and on tracks of a Kudu bull in Zimbabwe, stalking an elusive Bongo in a Cameroon rain forest or sizing up an Elephant bull in thick scrub at 20 yards, its an exciting, unique experience that will live in your memories forever. Classic African Hunting offers fair chase, free range hunting in large concessions in both Cameroon and Zimbabwe. The areas in which we hunt vary from the mixed woodland, rolling hills and vleis of Matetsi to the thick tropical rain forests and open savannahs of Cameroon. All the areas we hunt have been carefully selected through many years of travel, hunting experience, knowledge of the areas, wildlife populations and trophy quality. From this hands on expertise we are able to tailor make safaris to the hunter's specific requirements and needs to ensure a memorable hunting experience. Hunting in 2 countries with varied habitats also enables us to offer the hunting of nearly 60 species.
Since the mid 1800's the wild , remote western area of Zimbabwe has attracted hunters and explorers such as Baines , Selous , Oates and Barbe. The early trading post of Pandamatenga (located on the south western boundary of our hunting area) was a hot spot for trading in ostrich feathers, ivory, hides and general goods. It was also a base from which to hunt the surrounding areas and visit the Victoria Falls. In those early times the Victoria Falls was a 3 day walk from Pandamatenga.
It is in this prime area of Zimbabwe that we hunt the world famous Matesti Safari Area ( Unit 2 ) and the adjoining Forestry concession of Kazuma making up an area of just on 120 000 acres . Both areas offer great wildlife numbers, varied habitats , big open skies and the incredible free range hunting experience of big game safaris as it was in the years gone by. Both areas annually produce exceptional Elephant, Lion, Leopard and Sable trophies.
Cameroon is a newly discovered wild frontier for the serious sports hunter. We offer hunts in the forests of east and in the northern savannah areas . Many top class trophies are taken from here every year.
