DEAR HUNTING FRIENDS

I hope this email finds you well and hopefully planning to get back to hunting again this year.

If you are considering a hunting trip to Zimbabwe, I do have dates available in our Gonarezhou concessions: Chitsa, Sengwe 1 and Sengwe 2 for big elephant and trophy buffalo + hippo, croc are plentiful and if you are lucky you will shoot a huge eland bull or nyala… The areas are well rested, the animal movement is fantastic.

In Matetsi/Zimbabwe I have quota available on the big cats: leopard and lion plus elephant bulls at unbeatable prices plus buffalo, sable, plains game, hippo and croc, please contact me for more information and for available dates and a chance to view the Victoria Falls in high water.

Please also contact me for all your South African hunting requirements, I do have rhino, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, elephant and plains game on quota and available in South Africa, dates are available.

Here are my recent hunt updates:

During January 2021 we welcomed an elephant hunter from Europe, he hunted with PH Nixon Dzingai in the Sengwe hunting areas of the Gonarezhou/Zimbabwe, the hunting was challenging as there was lots or rain around, the rivers were flooded and a mini cyclone passed over the area. In typical Nixon Dzingai and Simon Dzingai style they pushed on and worked hard managing to harvest this trophy elephant bull, our first elephant of the year, a super happy client that deserves this massive bull. A special thanks to Josef Thoma from Westfalia Jagdreisen in Germany for this hunt and for coming hunting with his client. In addition to this brute, the hunters saw a 90+ pounder that gave them the slip when the wind changed…. There is no better place in Africa to hunt these trophy elephant bulls, symmetrical long and thick tusks.

During November/December last year we welcomed hunters from Europe that also hunted in the Gonarezhou hunting areas Sengwe 1 and Sengwe 2 with PH’s Simon Dzingai and Nixon Dzingai, they hunted these 3 buffalos and this trophy elephant bull. Hunters, there is no better dagga boy hunt than these hunting areas, you will shoot your buffalo at between 5 and 50 meters in the Limpopo River jess bush or dry river bed, this is free range buffalo and elephant paradise, if you are looking for a well-priced fair play, straight business hunt or hunting Operator partner then look no further than Take Aim Safaris.

During December last year we welcomed a father and son from Europe on this rhino and plains game hunt in central South Africa, they hunted these wonderful plains game species and this rhino bull, I have a good number of rhino bulls available all of different horn length, both white and black rhino, over the years I have sold very many rhino hunts that have contributed a fortune towards rhino conservation, I can with confidence book you the right hunt, contact me for more info, rhino hunts are more affordable than you think.




Zimbabwe is open for hunting, to hunt in Zimbabwe you should travel directly to Zimbabwe with Ethiopian Airlines or Emirates Airlines not necessary to route via South Africa, there is no quarantine on arrival or departure, please arrive with a negative Covid test, we will arrange your departure test for you, it’s really a simple process and is hugely rewarding as the hunting is excellent and things are good here.

South Africa is also open for hunting, a few different airlines are flying here, I will meet you when you land and help you with all formalities, arrive with a Covid negative test and depart with one, there is no quarantine required on arrival or departure. You could also route to Zimbabwe via South Africa.

Clients, agents, Operators, Outfitters and PH’s please contact me for all your Zimbabwean and South African hunting requirements.

Hunters best wishes

DEAR HUNTING FRIENDS

I trust this 81st edition of the Take Aim Safaris newsletter finds you well.

Since my last newsletter in June we have done a few local hunter hunts in South Africa and also in Zimbabwe that I can update you on here, we have also started to welcome international clients back into Zimbabwe that opened on the 1st October for tourism including hunting, since then I have had a hunter from Germany arriving and I know of American hunters that are hunting with a friend of mine in Matetsi, things are moving along albeit slowly.

We sincerely hope that things normalize soon as 2020 has been a bumpy ride down here in Southern Africa, I can’t predict the future from a Covid perspective suffice to say that we are all healthy and well here and that you can travel here with the confidence that things are as they always have been in Africa, we know that before long you hunters will find a way to get here, when you do arrive we will be waiting for you.

Starting in Matetsi Zimbabwe PH Steve Meyer guided this local hunter hunt during August/September:

During September I hunted with local hunters in South Africa, I was assisted on the hunt by PH’s Mias Steyn and Bennie Breytenbaach we hunted some wonderful trophy bulls including this 44 inch buffalo, a 43 inch buffalo, a 48 inch sable and a great old white rhino bull, I have a few of these old rhino bulls available if there are any hunters reading this wanting to complete their big 5 let me know. I have lots of quota available on buffalo, sable, roan, elephant and general plains game in South Africa.





In October we welcomed a client from Germany into the Matetsi Safari area of Zimbabwe on an elephant hunt, the hunt was guided by PH Shawn Kelly, the hunters managed to hunt this very good old elephant bull that is estimated as a 70 pounder, a great old bull. Take a look at this buffalo that Shawn saw standing in the road one morning. Thanks to Adler Tours (Germany) for the booking.

Thanks for taking the time to read my newsletters and pass them onto your hunting friends, please let me know if you are interested in a hunt in South Africa or Zimbabwe in 2021 and we can work out a deal for you, easy booking terms are available. We are not increasing our prices for the 2021 season at all, you can view our 2021 pricelists for South Africa and Zimbabwe on our website www.takeaimsafaris.com

As for me I am getting ready to attend the hunting shows in the USA and Europe 2021 and I am bringing the best of African big game hunting with me.

Hunters best wishes
