  • My maternal grandfather, John Kazamias, arrived in 1905. Both my grandfather and my father were passionate hunters, making me the third generation hunter. A legacy I take pride in and a passion I share with my children...
  • Anybody can offer you a trophy hunt, but only a few will offer you a great trophy hunt.

I first hunted with Michel Mantheakis back in 1988, and have considered him like my little brother ever since. He is a hunter’s hunter, extremely capable and knowledgeable, a fine judge of trophy quality, and one of the best I’ve ever seen at hunting both leopard and lion. A good PH is always mandatory for a good safari, but in Tanzania hunting areas are really important. Michel has one of the very best Masailand concessions, offering the full range of “Masailand species;” and an exceptional block in western Tanzania for lion and the more southern species. Equally important: Michel looks after his areas, investing heavily in antipoaching and community projects. A fourth-generation Tanzanian, Michel knows his country and its game, and his camps are traditional and extremely comfortable East African safari camps.
