Secretary bird



Wildbeest meets 35 Whelen



With some looking around, there are some great Grants gazelle on the plains



Ostrich meets 470 nitro



Dining area - the camp is tented with attached bathrooms with running hot and cold water



EA Impala



Gerenuk





A really good Grants Gazelle - long and wide




East African Greater Kudu - the Grey ghost of Africa! Not plentiful which is why they are called Grey ghosts I guess!



Kirks dik dik are everywhere, the key is to find one that stops long enough for a shot



Lots of lesser kudu - walking slowly in the bush seems to have the best results

The buffalo hunting has not been fully explored, but July to mid September is the best time to go







Cokes Hartebeest



Pattersons Eland



A unique trophy



Gerenuk



An old lesser kudu with great mass



We still have some spots available in July and August which is prime time.

Tanzania is one of the few countries that was open for business last year too and remains open. This week I spoke to a doctor in one of the biggest hospitals in Dar and he told me candidly that there were very few cases in TZ! You will need a negative Covid test prior to departing the USA and also one in TZ before departure which we will arrange.

Thanks for your time.

Arjun, you might want to read Saeed's warning at the top of the forum regarding tips and gratuities. He said if mentioned, the hunt offering will be deleted. Just a heads up for you. By the way, your other offerings list tips and gratuities as well.

Also, I'm not a fan of the sliding rate for ivory. On my one and only elephant hunt in Zimbabwe, my PH tried to get the largest bull for me. Fortunately, i was very successful and connected with 32kg x 33kg bull. This would have doubled my trophy fee in your area. In my opinion, it makes for a different kind of hunt and experience.

Respectfully, RCG

RCG,

Amended offer to remove tips. Of course it is discretionary and I don't like mentioning it too but many clients ask so was just stating it.

I also agree that trophy fees should not be on a sliding scale. Like penalizing a client for shooting a good trophy! But thats TZ govt. rules.

Thanks,

Arjun

I hunted with Kabubi in July of '19 and had a great hunt for the specialized Masailand species. Hasheem and his crew were very accommodating and service was top rate. Food was what you would find in a Zimbabwe camp, not 5 star like some TZ camps but good and plenty. The camp I was in was very nice and obviously the game was there. I will hopefully head back at some point when I get caught up with the hunts I've booked and had to push forward because of the pandemic. I would like to hunt with Hasheem again for buffalo. Probably a bit later in the season after the short rains when the buff leave the park. Great hunt at a fair price!


On the plains of hesitation lie the bleached bones of ten thousand, who on the dawn of victory lay down their weary heads resting, and there resting, died.

Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch...
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

I recall that during the Colonial period (British) when hunting Elephants for the sale of their ivory was quite legal, the Game Dept. applied a royalty or levy on every pound of ivory for tusks that exceeded set limits: (31-50lbs, 51-70lbs & 71+lbs)

The fee, if memory serves me right was something to the tune of 4shs/6shs/12shs/pound and any tusk weighing less than the minimal accepted limit of 11bs per side was confiscated and the hunter ran the risk of being fined.

The current "sliding scale" however seems unconvincing as many outfitters seem to have differing prices. coffee

Outfitters all over Africa have different trophy fees on imapala let alone elephants!! In Europe it is standard practice and also set by the government in state owned hunting areas. And in areas where they do not offer a sliding scale, the client thinks he won the jackpot only to realize after his hunt that his trophies are average if not on the lower end!

Anyway these prices are amongst the lowest you are going to find to hunt Masailand so enjoy it if you can.

Can gerenuk and lesser kudu be taken on a 10 day license ?

You have to buy a 21 day license and hunt only 10 days if the outfitter will allow it. Big if.

You will have to buy a 21 lic. for these species, I can check with the outfitter if he will allow it. He only gets a few of these species on quota and am sure would prefer to keep them for his 21 day clients.

Thanks,
Arjun
