I have two possibilities for leopard hunting in 2010.
The first opportunity is in Zimbabwe during the first two weeks of August. You would be hunting with a very well-known outfitter for fourteen days at $1,000/day plus bait fees and a trophy fee of $3,750 for the leopard – a base cost of $17,750 US. I have attached a Destination Overview for this particular outfitter which contains the trophy fees for plains game animals and information on any other applicable fees for this outfitter.
For this hunt you would need to fly into Harare, Zimbabwe and then either drive or charter to the concession.
The second leopard hunting opportunity is in the Niassa Reserve in Mozambique during the last week of August and the first week of September. Again, you would be hunting with a very well known outfitter for fourteen days at $1,400/day plus bait fees and a trophy fee of $7,900 (which includes a license fee of $1,900). Due to the lateness of the season, this outfitter is willing to discount the daily rate and the trophy fee by 20%, which would reduce the base price to $22,380 (daily rate of $15,680 and a trophy fee including license of $6,700). Once again, I have attached a Destination Overview for this particular outfitter which contains the trophy fees for plains game animals and information on any other applicable fees for this concession.
For this hunt, you would fly into Pemba, Mozambique and then charter from there into the Niassa Reserve.
Considering that the hunt would occur in 60 to 90 days, full payment of the daily rate would be required to book the hunt, with the trophy/bait fees payable upon the conclusion of your safari.
If you are interested in either of these two leopard hunts, please get back to me as soon as possible so that we can reserve your leopard.
Thank you once again for contacting Global Sporting Safaris for your hunting needs.
