Elusive and Dangerous… that is leopard hunting.
This Botswana leopard hunting outfitter that will be guiding you on this hunt holds more of the top 10 dangerous game records than any other safari outfitter in Africa, and that includes the current #1 SCI leopard!
Possibly the most beautiful African trophy, the leopard is the most secretive of the African big cats. Growing, on average, upwards of 145 lbs with some extraordinarily large males reaching nearly 200 lbs, these incredible cats are known to be the most lethal and dangerous creature in Africa when wounded. Their amazing speed and the fact that they target the face and throat makes them a very respected trophy to pursue.

The most common dates for leopard hunting run from May through October.
Leopards may only be hunted during daylight hours in Botswana, so this outfitter offers both tracking and baiting for leopard hunting.
The most common method used for leopard hunting is building a blind roughly 50 yards away from a bait that has been hung high in a tree. However, this outfitter also offers tracking as a method for hunting these elusive animals. Please note that Botswana only allows leopards to be taken during daylight hours. The use of spotlights is illegal.
Success Rates and Trophy Quality
As far as leopard hunts go, this outfitter has a very high success rate of roughly 80%. That is mostly due to their secretive and often nocturnal nature as well as the inability to use spotlights in Botswana. Although they grow different sizes in different parts of the continent, much like whitetail deer in the U.S., Botswana leopard hunting is known for producing record breaking leopards.
Elephant, lion, and cape buffalo and all common Botswana plains game are also available with this outfitter.
Trophies are professionally skinned and cared for. While processing trophies to be sent back home is not included, all necessary cleaning, quartering, and trophy preservation is done for you during the safari.
Rifles and ammunition are both available for rent on this hunt.
Camps and Accommodations
Camps vary, but the most common style is tented camps with tile floors, flushing toilets, 24 hour hot and cold water, 24 hour lights, twin or queen beds and a dresser.
Vehicles are 4×4 Toyotas customized for Safari use.
The nearest airport to the hunting area is in Maun, Botswana.
