Leopard are the most elusive of African predators and hunting leopard is an experience that will test your levels of patience. They are the most adaptable predators in the animal world and often occur in areas one would least expect to find them.
They prey on any animal, from domestic dogs and rats in urban areas to impala sized antelope in the wild.
Leopard are solitary and will only pair up briefly to mate. Leopard hunting in Africa is most effectively done from a blind with bait set up. Pre-baiting prior to the hunter’s arrival in the hunting area is a must for all serious leopard hunting trips.
It’s not legal to hunt leopard after dark in some African countries. Choose your area well and your leopard hunting dreams will come true.
Although leopard can be hunted with lighter calibers, minimum caliber for dangerous game hunting in Africa is .375
The cost of a leopard hunt depends on the area, number of permits available and any additional charges like air charters, government fees and pre-baiting.
