The lion is the most feared of African predators. Nowhere does a lion roar go unnoticed! Lion are found throughout the national parks and large hunting concessions of Africa. They have an innate ability to sense weakness and will prey on animals of any size.
A pride of lions consists of a dominant female, other females and their cubs and a male lion. Lionesses do most of the hunting in a pride of lions and should be respected. Males develop manes from 3 years of age.
Lion hunting takes place in the various hunting blocks of Zimbabwe and Zambia. Bait and blind is the most effective method of hunting lion.
Use a minimum .375 caliber and a scope with low variable magnification when hunting lion. Quick detachable mounts are handy in follow up situations
The cost of a lion hunt depends on the area, number of permits available and any additional charges like air charters, government fees and pre-baiting. Contact us for a custom lion hunting package.
