Prohunt Zambia - Crocodile Hunting

 General Information
Prohunt Zambia Ltd was founded by Richard and Barry Bell-Cross who secured the hunting rights to the extensive Kasempa Lunga Luswishi Game Management Area (GMA). Between them they have put together an experienced and respected management team to ensure a superior safari experience for their clients. Prohunt offers not only excellent hunting opportunities but more importantly provides old fashioned hospitality together with an outstanding support service customized to realize your wildest dreams.

Kafue RiverKasempa Lunga Luswishi is one of Zambia's largest hunting concessions and covers a staggering 6,000 sq miles of pristine wilderness. Two great river systems, the Kafue and Lunga adjoin the area and provide ideal habitats for a wide variety of animal species. The GMA consists mainly of open grassy areas called dambos which are interspersed with woodland and thickets and is widely considered in hunting circles to be an excellent general bag area.

The area is famous for huge dark maned Lions and the New Zambian Record Leopard was taken there in 2004.

Hippos in the KafueSought after species such as Roan, outstanding Sable and world class Defassa Waterbuck roam the woodland areas. In addition, Litchenstein's Hartebeest, Eland, Zebra, Puku, Reedbuck, Oribi, Impala and Warthog are abundant throughout the vast grassy plains and dambo systems. It is not uncommon to be able to view hundreds of animals each day. Sable herdThe rivers harbor scattered populations of Hippo and some monster Crocodiles and the riverside thickets provide a safe refuge for Chobe Bushbuck, Bushpig and Kudu. Buffalo, although not common can be found in the more isolated expanses of the concession. Buffalo hunting here is certainly only for the more adventurous who are willing to hunt hard and overnight in remote spike camps.

Lunga Luswishi is one of the few areas in Zambia where one can hunt the elusive and much sought after Zambezi Sitatunga without having to do a side trip to the Bangweulu Swamps. They occur in good numbers with exceptional quality in several different swamps around the concession. They can be hunted from the main hunting camp or otherwise from temporary spike camps in some of the more remote swamps.

Kafue LechweKafue Flats and Bangweulu Swamps are areas of striking beauty and provide unrivalled hunting opportunities for the Kafue and Black Lechwe respectively. Herds of Lechwe well in excess of 1,000 frequent the grassy plains and the total population of both species is believed to number over 40,000. Is there a world record out there?

 Camps

Hunting is conducted from mufupanda hunting camp which is situated on the Kafue River. This is a permanent site with self contained permanent chalets that are constructed of wood with adjoining stone bathrooms. There is hot and cold running water, solar lighting and an electrical outlet for charging video cameras, etc. The chalets are spacious inside and have a verandah overlooking the river. There is a large dinning area with comfortable chairs and a fireplace for the colder evenings. This is where breakfast and dinner are served and a sundowner can be sipped at the wooden bar. Lunch is saved on the deck over the river.

Meals are cooked by our first class chef Alex who has been with Prohunt for the last ten years. Menus are selected to suit the clients likes. We try I vary the diet to include freshly caught fish, game birds and of course the meat from the animals hunted.

Depending on the species you are hunting, you may have to overnight in a remote spike camp. This is an experience in itself. You will sleep under the stars or in a tent and although often referred to as roughing it, we do take enough supplies for it to be comfortable. A toilet and shower are constructed on site and the cool sets up the kitchen. You feel very close to nature in this environment.

 Travel

There are many ways to fly to Zambia and getting help from a good travel agent is advisable. Upon arrival in Lusaka you will be met by one of Prohunt's representatives in the arrivals hall of the airport where you will then be helped through customs with all the necessary gun permits, etc. The drive into camp is only about 5 hours on good roads. If need be we can arrange for overnight accommodation in one of several good hotels in Lusaka.
