Anyone who has read about African plains game hunting or watched Craig Boddington’s “Tracks Across Africa” may have developed a desire to hunt the king of African plains game – the Sable.
Sable are among the most striking of all the African antelope and one of the top trophies on the list of most African hunters. Their magnificent horns, contrasting colors and relative scarcity make them a highly desired trophy animal.
Sable bulls turn darker with age, eventually achieving their pitch black coloration when fully mature and ready to challenge the dominant male during the breeding season. They have a very distinctive musky odor which can often be detected while tracking. Despite their appearance, sable are not overly large antelope but make up for this size deficit through their aggressive nature.
Sable can usually be hunted along with other species of plains game without having to change locations. In some countries like Tanzania or Zimbabwe, the right to hunt sable is generally reserved for the longer safaris due to high demand and their relative scarcity over most of their range. HoweverGlobal Sporting Safaris is now able to offer a quality sable hunt in Zambia in as few as five days.
If sable is on your short or bucket list, now is the time to book your hunt – you probably won’t see another opportunity like this in your lifetime. For more details call Bob Abderson at 307-473-1268 or click here for details and locations.

Depending on your preferences for additional species, most cape buffalo hunts will run between 10 and 15 days. The best value for hunting buffalo today is in the country of Zimbabwe. While there is still political turmoil in Zimbabwe, the country remains relatively safe for the international hunter and presents good value for your hunting dollar. Most Cape buffalo hunts occurs in two primary areas of the country including the lowveld in southern/southeastern Zimbabwe north of the South African border and in the Zambezi river valley in northern Zimbabwe south of the border with Zambia. Hunting in the lowveld will generally occur on private conservancies while the hunting in the Zambezi valley will occur on concessions owned by the Government of Zimbabwe and leased to particular hunting companies/safari operators. A selection of hunting areas will depend in part upon your desire to hunt plains game in addition to the buffalo. The lowveld generally has better populations of the more commonly sought after plains game species including kudu, impala, warthog, wildebeest, zebra, etc. while the Zambezi valley is somewhat better known for big/dangerous game including crocodile, elephant, hippo and lion. That is not to say that plains game is not available, just not in the numbers found on the conservancies in the lowveld. The quality of the buffalo between the lowveld and the Zambezi valley is probably about the same and you can expect to take a mature bull in the…..
