Along with the buffalo, the lion is considered to be one of the most dangerous animals to hunt in Africa. Lion hunting requires plenty of skill. As legend says, a hunter will be scared by the lion at least three times; the first being when he spots the spoor, the second when he hears the roar and the third when he catches sight of this majestic animal. Lion hunting in Africa is guaranteed to be a once in a lifetime experience.


Elephant hunting requires a physically fit hunter who is prepared to cover a lot of ground on foot. You are unlikely to have to achieve a long distance shot when elephant hunting in Africa but you will need to get within at least 40 meters to fire your first shot. As this first shot is so important and needs to be done precisely, it is imperative that the hunter is very comfortable with his weapon.

Cape Buffalo

A ferocious beast with quite the temper, buffalo is the most common animal hunted of all of the Big 5. They live in wooded areas as well as savannahs, where the hunter might need to take a long distance shot. Winter is the best season to hunt buffalo, as visibility is generally better. Try to book your hunt for between June and September, before the summer rains make the vegetation dense once more.

African Leopard


When hunting leopard in Africa, patience will be the key to your success. The leopard is one of the most elusive animals on the continent and usually, a professional hunter will need to bait the animal just to lure him into shooting range. You might spend more than one night sitting in a blind, and even with all the patience and baiting, you are not guaranteed success. Persistence in your hunt is what will increase your chances when hunting leopard.


As the most controversial animal to hunt, of all the Big 5, rhino hunting in Africa is often not free range hunting. In some ways, hunting rhino can aid conservation efforts and if you are one of the lucky few to get a permit, this will be the most memorable hunt you will ever do. Rhinos are considered to be calm, placid animals but they have an aggressive streak, which makes them dangerous game. Patience is a necessity.

Brian & Family

“After three unsuccessful leopard safaris with other outfitters, Limcroma Safaris was finally the outfitter that made it happen for me. Hannes and his staff are professional and goal driven individuals who take care of every little detail. My family and I shared many special memories and we look forward to many more!”


“I took all of the Big Five with Hannes and I’m still coming back. He runs a first class operation!”


“I have hunted with Limcroma twice. Both times I hunted with archery equipment. The accommodations, service, and food were first class. The PHs, hunting, and trophy quality were all as good as it gets for the bow hunter. I will be returning to Limcroma.”
