Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Elephant hunting different from other hunts?

  • Elephants are the largest land mammals, and hunting them involves unique challenges, particularly in terms of shot placement and the physical rigor of tracking them through diverse terrain.

Where do your recommended Elephant hunts usually take place?

  • We recommend outfitters for Elephant hunting primarily located in countries like Tanzania, Botswana, and Zimbabwe, which have sizeable Elephant populations.

What is the best time of year to hunt Elephants?

  • Elephants can be hunted year-round, but hunting during the dry season when Elephants are more likely to congregate around water sources, may be more fruitful.

What gear is necessary for an Elephant hunt?

  • Necessary gear for an Elephant hunt includes:
  • A big-bore rifle suitable for dangerous game (.375 caliber or larger).
  • Camouflage or neutral-colored clothing suitable for the climate and terrain.
  • Quality binoculars for spotting.

Can an Elephant hunt be combined with hunts for other species?

  • Yes, an Elephant hunt can often be combined with hunts for other members of the 'Big Five', such as Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, and Rhinoceros.

What is the required fitness level for an Elephant hunt?

  • Elephant hunts can involve significant amounts of walking, so a reasonable level of fitness can be beneficial. However, the exact physical requirements can vary based on the hunting strategy employed.
