Elephant

For over a decade Adventure Unlimited has specialized in offering Elephant hunting safaris in the prime blocks of the best elephant regions in Africa.  And in that short time we have become known not only as one of, but perhaps the best elephant hunting specialist company in the safari hunting industry.  Our expertise in planning and outfitting elephant hunting safaris in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, South Africa, Mozambique, Namibia and even Cameroon is unmatched by any other company today.

Adventure Unlimited clients have taken some of the biggest tuskers coming out of Africa, for thousands of dollars less than our competitors.  Our professional hunters who conduct our specialized elephant hunting safaris are full-time elephant hunters.  They focus their entire seasons almost exclusively on elephant hunting, and this is one of the two primary reasons for our clients’ huge successes.  The second factor is that we are only hunting areas with very high populations of elephant in regions known for producing big ivory.  We have found the best elephant populations in southern Africa to be located around the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, Chobe National Park in Botswana and in the Gonarhezou National Park in southeast of Zimbabwe.

All of our prime areas have elephant populations that are out of control, and far exceed the park rangers and wildlife biologists recommended carrying capacities.  Some of these areas have so many elephant that they are causing a die-off of plains game species as a casualty of too many elephant.  And the deforestation in areas around Chobe and Hwange National Parks is at the point where the country is beginning to make transition from lush green bush, to semi-arid desert.  This is strictly due to an elephant population that is out of control, and literally destroying all the vegetation.

Elephant hunting in an around these overpopulated areas is the only means of effective control to keep the numbers in check, and also prevent human/elephant conflict in the areas bordering these parks.
