Lion hunting package deal
Lion hunting in South Africa – African lion hunting
Lion hunting in South Africa can be as challenging as African lion hunting anywhere on the sub-Saharan African continent. Hunting in Africa Safaris and Tours prides itself in offering ethical walk-and-stalk lion hunting safaris and baiting lion hunting trips.
Our lion hunting safari packages include your normal daily rates with a trophy fee on the side. If the cost of hunting a trophy black mane lion is outside your budget, have a look at our lioness hunting package deals. (Preview the lioness hunting video). We do not make use of lion hunting dogs like the Rhodesian Ridgeback but have fox terriers and Jack Russels when in need to track a wounded lion.
We gladly offer African lion bowhunting safaris. As far as we are concerned we would like to present lion hunting safaris with a rifle or with a bow, as long as our safaris are conducted in a legal and ethical manner.
Hunting a lion successfully will contribute towards your Big 5 African hunting safari quest.
We offer African lion hunting safaris in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
The price of the African Lion Hunting package deal will be determined according to the category lion you decide to hunt.

African lion hunting safari packages are not that common. Hunting in Africa Safaris and Tours decided to make it affordable for the average hunter to be able to hunt lions. At Hunting in Africa Safaris and Tours we hunt lions ethically and allow the hunter to hunt on fair ground. To ensure a lion hunting safari is successful we need hunters to make use of adequate lion hunting rifles to make the hunt legal. According to South African legislation you need to use a hunting rifle with a minimum caliber of 375. We are one of the few lion hunting outfitters who offer hunting packages at the best hunting places in South Africa so you need not have to find places where to hunt lions.
We have secured the best hunting places and keep on sending hunters to the same regions to secure lion hunting prices stay stable. A price we quote is the price you pay so there will be no nasty surprises at the end of the safari.
The lion hunting pictures we have are from the actual hunts we conduct. Our lion hunting images are the real deal and we look forward to accommodate you at a hunting lodge that will suit the occasion. Please contact us direct for your personalized African lion hunting safari by clicking HERE.
