Big Game Hunting in Africa

Hunting for big game is an exhilarating experience that few people have undertaken. Successful hunting of large animals brings quite a pleasure to the hunter. It is a reward for work well done. Big game hunters call the African lion, African leopard, rhinoceros, Cape buffalo, and African elephant the Big Five. The name comes from the fact that these animals are tough to conquer when hunting. If you have been used to hunting small game, it is time to graduate to a higher level of adventure. Take selfies with lions, giraffes, and cheetahs during the hunting experience.

The big game boast of power and skill awarded to them by nature. They have evolved to rule the jungle, to dominate the savanna. Going for big game hunting helps one enjoy the ultimate satisfaction of interacting with nature.

The African elephant is the most sought after trophy in Africa. It is their long, heavy tusks that are idolized by many. If you are going for the elephant, be prepared to trek for long distances. The animal is huge, and although it has a large surface area, one needs to be close to the animal before pulling the trigger.

Buffalos are highly prized because they are the “biggest” (most dangerous) in the big five. Buffalo hunting is the epitome of any herbivore hunting sport. Every hunter wants to go for the toughest and their pick is usually the Cape buffalo. This is the animal that the lion runs away from. It looks very ferocious, and a hunter who brings it down sears a mark on nature’s log.

Getting a Rhino for the big five trophies is fun. They are full of strength giving one the perfect source of ego. In fact, it is an emerging trend amongst hunters. Their ferocity used to mislead many to think that they are not social at all. Professional hunting guides will help you identify the best place to give them a fatal blow.

Of all the cat family members, the Lion is the only one imbued with a majestic presence. Hunt for the African lion and take home its mane for posterity. They are a source of powerful identity. It won’t be an easy task to corner the king of the savannas. The sandy Kalahari soils and company of skilled Bushmen is a recipe for exciting lion hunting on foot. Anyone who chooses to take down the lion must be prepared to do so with all their heart.

The Leopard is the most agile of the big five. It can climb trees to ambush an unsuspecting gazelle or stash a meal. The hunter who wants to spend days and nights hunting the elusive leopard must exercise patience. The animal is super-fast and intelligent and as such the hunter must have the most refined hunting skills.

Convert an otherwise boring safari into a trip to remember. Go for the best of Africa’s wild adventure by hunting for big game. Once you visit Africa, you will realize how much fun you have been missing.
