WELCOME TO TAKE AIM SAFARIS
YOUR GATEWAY TO HUNTING IN ZIMBABWE AND SOUTH AFRICA
TAKE AIM SAFARIS is owned and operated by Carl Knight who is a specialist Southern African big game Hunting Outfitter, Hunting Agent and South African Professional Hunter. I am a British National that lives in Johannesburg South Africa and have done so almost all my life. I have hunted South Africa and Zimbabwe extensively over the last 38 years as I write this in July 2019 I am 45 years of age. Take Aim Safaris is a safari industry market leader with a track record that spans over 11 years of full time work in the hunting industry having booked and/or conducted over 400 big game hunts to date. To see the photos from these hunts please visit the big game gallery on my website by selecting that from the tabs above.
Here is my brief overview of each country that I offer hunts in, for more detailed information about the individual concessions I offer please follow the relevant tabs above.
ZIMBABWE: Can only be described as the best hunting destination in Africa of that fact there is no doubt in my mind having personally hunted every African county open to hunting including and south of Tanzania. Zimbabwe remains the #1 hunting destination offer I have for my clients. Zimbabwe offers only free range fair chase hunting with no fences at all in any of my offered concession areas. The areas I offer are concession areas that are directly adjoined, open and unfenced to National Parks that serve as feeder Parks to the hunting areas. These hunting areas are owned by either the Zimbabwean Government or local Communities that lease the land to the local Operators whom I represent. We are not a South African company operating in Zimbabwe, I am a specialist/veteran hunting agent that books hunts for Zimbabwean Professional Hunters and Zimbabwean Operator companies. My relations in that country have grown immensely over the years to include my sister company relations with Nixon Dzingai www.ssgsafaris.com and among others well respected PH Operators such a Steve Meyer and Lloyd Yeatman, there are no better PH’s in Africa than qualified big game Zimbabwean PH’s.
Our Zimbabwe concessions are fantastic for all big game, these are serious hunter hunts in big game country. I book on average 60 big game hunters a year in Zimbabwe and have done so for some years now. I don’t want to upset any other Operators or PH’s however I am well qualified to tell you again that there is NO BETTER hunting destination in Africa than Zimbabwe for free range fair chase big game hunting. It is an honour for me to offer Zimbabwean hunts to you my clients.
SOUTH AFRICA: I grew up in South Africa and still live in Johannesburg with my wife and kids, I find that being located in Johannesburg works well for me as clients hunting in South Africa, Zimbabwe or Namibia mostly land in Johannesburg where we clear rifles and luggage for them before they continue onto their final hunting destination. In addition I am a South African professional hunter and Outfitter so I do some of the local hunts myself.
There are some very good hunting opportunities in RSA that has always been a market leader as far as Southern African hunting is concerned. South Africa is for the most part a high fenced area hunting destination. There are some very good hunting farms in RSA that would cost and do cost a fortune to buy for the farmers that own them and cost a lot to run and maintain. If you would like a hunt in a 4 or 5 star luxury lodge with high end amenities then RSA is the place for you, if you are of limited mobility then RSA is the place for you, RSA would also be ideal for family hunting holidays.
If you would like the option to hunt two of the best areas in RSA then follow the above links to the two RSA hunting areas I offer, those are Limpopo Serengeti and Philippolis, both very nice hunting farms that are as close to free range as you will get in RSA, both of these farms offer fair chase hunting.
SUMMARY: I am 100% committed to offering my clients from all over the world bookings into the top Zimbabwean and South African hunting concessions available based on the strength of the area for the species that the client wishes to hunt, for instance some areas are better for Elephant than others same goes for Lion, Buffalo and Leopard etc. My concessions have consistently produced top quality elephant bulls, buffalo bulls and superb wild lions that are huntable on a strict quota system.
I have top concessions available to hunt top quality trophies on a fair chase basis. My hunt prices are the best that the industry has to offer in top concessions, I don’t offer marginal areas or bad hunts, my hunts are all well researched and hunted by me in person long before I offer them to my clients, well-priced top quality hunts is what I do. You will be hunting top concessions with the best PH’s when you book with Take Aim Safaris.
I only book hunts in conjunction with licensed and registered Safari Outfitters and Professional Hunters. I am a licenced Safari Outfitter and Professional Hunter myself as well as a specialist big game Booking Agent, on this basis I know exactly what is required to make your safari a successful one. I have personally hunted the big 5 and dangerous 7 as a client, most of the species in these groups a few times over not to mention guiding them many more times over, I know very well what you expect from your hunt and your PH. If you want a no nonsense booking then contact Take Aim Safaris.
I have many Booking Agents, Outfitters, Professional Hunters as clients as well as hunters themselves, feel free to email me your enquiry. If I can’t help you I will point you in the right direction, no enquiry is too big or small.
Whilst you are on my site please take a moment to subscribe to my newsletter and read some of the past newsletters sent out. Also take a look through the trophy gallery that speaks for itself. I have many references from hunters who have booked hunts with or hunted with me in the past in the areas you will be hunting.
This company was started by a hunter with a passion for hunting, a passion for conservation and a love for this industry, that same person still runs this company, that passion remains.
Hunters Best Wishes.
