Newsletter 84

DEAR HUNTING FRIENDS

I hope this 84th edition of the Take Aim Safaris newsletter finds you well.

Since our last newsletter that was send out at the start of May, our clients have done some really great hunts in Botswana, Zimbabwe, and South Africa.

The safari industry is waking up from over a year of Covid slumber, hunters want to hunt, guides want to guide, now is a good time to book your hunt for this year of next. Please contact me for available quota, dates, and hunt pricing.

As mentioned on a previous newsletter, TAS has started to offer hunts in Botswana, in the NG 49 concession to be specific via a partnership agreement with the concession owner who is a TAS hunting client.

My last client to hunt Botswana (during June 2021) was a German client that booked to hunt a leopard and a trophy elephant bull, this client had previously failed on leopard hunts (not through TAS) and wanted to be as sure as possible that he would get his leopard this time, the client not only wanted a leopard but wanted a big old heavy cat, my recommendation was that he booked one of the two leopard permits that I had available in Botswana since there has been no hunting there for many years, the chances of success would be high. The result of his hunt was this superb 103 kg old tom cat, a great one to harvest, well done Lucas, Wolfgang and all concerned.

I do still have one tag left for the 2021 hunting season for leopard in Botswana, please let me know if you want this tag.  Also on my client’s wish list was a trophy elephant bull, this 70+ pounder ticked that box… Please contact me for your Botswana hunt bookings, the quality of elephant bulls that has been harvested in NG49 this year is simply amazing, if you want the photos of those bulls please let me know, I do have them. Prime time for big elephant in Botswana’s NG49 is April until September. I have quota on elephant, buffalo and leopard in Botswana.

This recent hunt in the Gonarezhou hunting concessions Sengwe 1 and 2 was guided by PH Simon Dzingai (in photo), clients from the USA hunted these 35 and 50 pounder elephant bulls plus this fantastic dagga boy buffalo, the Gonarezhou concessions are literally teaming with elephant and buffalo that are moving into the hunting areas from the adjoining Kruger National Park and Gonarezhou National Park, if you plan to hunt a trophy elephant bull and/or trophy buffalo bull in Zimbabwe then look no further than the Gonarezhou.

Well done on another great hunt Simon. Thanks to Barry Seabrook from Gunsmoke Safaris in Darwin, Australia for this booking.

This is what a dagga boy should look like in my view…

This recent buffalo and plains game hunt was conducted in South Africa, this client has booked with TAS ten times or more, well done on another great hunt Ernest and thanks for your ongoing support.


Also on a recent hunt in South Africa, Russian clients hunted these great animals, thanks Vladimir for another great booking.



On another recent hunt in South Africa, these proper old dagga boys, trophy warthogs and plains game were hunted, I have a good number of these dagga boys on quota in South Africa, if you are interested in buffalo and plains game hunting in South Africa please contact me.

A special thanks to PH’s Leo Van Rooyen and Werner Mulder for guiding this hunt.




Hunters, PH’s, Outfitters, Operators and Agents please contact me for all your hunting requirements in Botswana, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, I have dates and quota available on top quality hunts.

Thanks for taking the time to read my newsletters and for passing them onto your hunting friends.

Hunters best wishes.
