General Information

Our Camps

We have two camps, the South camp is thatched lodges all en-suite, this camp is luxurious. The North camp is fixed tents all en-suite and more rustic. Both are generator run.*Please note in Zimbabwe we use a 220v electrical system so U.S. clients must bring adaptors.

Clothing and Equipment

The temperature is warm to hot throughout the year, so light clothing for the day. Temperature drops from May to August so a warm jacket for nights and early mornings is essential. You will walk a lot during the day so bring comfortable well worn in shoes. Make sure you also bring a hat, sunscreen, a knife, binoculars.* Please note it is illegal to wear camouflage clothing in Zimbabwe.

Health and Safety

We recommend that you start a malaria prevention course two weeks prior to arrival. Precautionary measures are taken within the rooms, we have nets over all the beds and your tent/room is sprayed with insecticides. Bring extra repellent and try to wear long sleeves and long pants in the evenings.

Travel

You will arrive in Bulawayo or Victoria Falls depending on which area you are hunting, then you are transferred by road(highway) until you get to the area and then dirt road for a short period. Your firearms and ammo must be declared at Customs on arrival, Customs will issue you a temporary firearms import permit.

Trophy preparation and shipping

We have trained skinners in our camps and your trophies will be expertly handled, caped and field cured in the camp. They then get transported to our warehouse in Bulawayo where further preparation is done. We crate and deliver to the shipping agents or to the local taxidermists if that is your preference. Zimafrica fully understands the importance of their clients trophies and prides themselves on this service.*All shipping and taxidermy are additional costs.
