Adam Clements Safari Trackers offers some of the finest big game hunting and plains game hunting available in Zimbabwe. Established in 1969, our outfitter, is one of the oldest existing hunting operations in Zimbabwe.
SAVE Valley Conservancy
We have the largest amount of land in the SAVE CONSERVANCY and 3 safari camps within the Save Conservancy and can offer excellent Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant and Plains Game hunts. The Save Valley Conservancy is just under 1 million acres in size and is reported to be the largest private wildlife area in the world. The area is renowned for its large leopards and has an abundance and wide variety of plains game animals. There is a wide diversity of habitats including open acacia woodland, mopane woodland, thick riverine vegetation and broken granite outcrops. You will have the opportunity to see the Big 5 in these areas.
The Arda concession is in the south of the Save Conservancy and is made up of three properties covering a total area of 50,000 acres. The concession has huge diversity and some different habitats to the Sango concession. The Mkwasine River runs through the Arda concession from west to east. The river only runs after particularly good rains but there are many permanent pools along its path. It is on one of these pools, on the eastern side of the concession that Arda Camp is situated. Whether you are a veteran of many African safaris or you are looking at your first trip to Africa, the Save Conservancy, with its abundant game populations, will provide you with an unforgettable hunting experience.
The Sango concession covers an area of 140,000 acres in the northern section of the Save Conservancy. It has beautiful open woodlands in the east which are home to abundant plains game; particularly large numbers of elephant as well as waterbuck and bushbuck. The Msaize River flows through the eastern section of Sango. The camp sits on the banks of the river under large nyala berry trees. In the western section of Sango there are some beautiful rocky outcrops which are home to sable, black eagles, dassies and the occasional sighting of leopard. The western side of the concession also seems to be preferred by the buffalo herds.
The Mokore area is also situated in the world famous Save Valley Conservancy in the South East Lowveld of Zimbabwe. Black and white rhino and wild dogs occur on Mokore and are likely to be seen during your safari there. Mokore Camp is situated on the banks of the Turgwe River in the heart of the Save Valley Conservancy. The camp boasts six luxury stone under thatch chalets with en-suite bathrooms. The dining area is continuous with a wooden deck that offers stunning views of the river. The camp is shaded by a canopy of giant nyala berry trees.
We also offer Elephant hunting in Mahenya and GANAREZHOU NATIONAL PARK. Mahenye is the original CAMPFIRE area in Zimbabwe and the community has been involved in the hunting industry for more than 30 years. There are estimated to be more than 6000 elephant in the Gonarezhou National Park which is 5,500km2 in size. The elephant population has produced some extremely large tuskers in the recent past including Dhulamithi (‘taller than trees’) and Kambakwe, both well over 100lb. The Park is also part of the Gazaland Transfrontier Park which includes Kruger National Park in South Africa and Limpopo National Park in Mozambique. This creates a contiguous wildlife area of over 40,000km2 and is one of the biggest conservation projects in Africa. The Mahenye concession provides an opportunity to hunt from this large elephant population and for elephant hunters to try for an exceptional trophy bull. There is good but limited plains game with the best trophies including a 63” Kudu and 16” bushbuck.. This is good for Elephant, Hippo and Crocodile. If you get your Elephant early in the safari, you can transfer to the Save Conservancy for excellent Plains Game hunting.
Sengwa Research Area
This is one of Zimbabwe’s best hunting concessions. It is located in the North West of the country in the Gokwe District. It is exactly half way between Harare and Victoria Falls. This offers a great opportunity for incoming guests to visit the world famous Victoria Falls en route to their safari. This truly beautiful area consists of huge floodplains and rolling plateaus. The wide variety of terrain from Mopane woodland, jesse, sandveld ridges and huge vlei’s provide wonderful habitat for huge resident herds of elephant, buffalo and plainsgame. Plentiful prey supply allows for a good population of the big cats. Elephant trophies average between 40 and 45 pounds with the occasional bull over 50 pounds being taken most years. Tuskless cows are also plentiful and these safaris are nearly 100% successful. The best times for hunting the bulls are early in March through May and late in September and October. Tuskless cows are better during the drier month of June through October. Buffalo are plentiful and are best during the drier months of June through October. The big cats are best hunted during the cool months of May through August. All cat hunting here is done during daylight hours and is therefore a great opportunity for the hunting purists who prefer not to use artificial light.
