Game Trackers Africa has being operating in East Africa’s Tanzania since 1999.

WESTERN TANZANIA – RUNGA
Bordering the Moyowosi River to the east. We’ve been hunting this area since 2004, having gained knowledge of the area like no one else. Western Tanzania is known to be prime lion area, the best in all of Africa – we have the area, we have the experience, we have hard-working professional hunters, we have the equipment, we have the means to get you a fine manned lion, a huge tom-leopard, let alone the fact that we harvested buffalo as big as 49 1/2 inches in this area.- that speaks for itself ! Species such as Cape Buffalo, Leopard, Sable, Topi, Bohor Reedbuck, Sitatunga, Roan, Bushbuck, Defassa Waterbuck, and Eland, amongst many others are abundant in numbers, not to mention the unsurpassed trophy quality.
The area consists of typical miombo forests in the northeast, sloping down to the west towards the Moyowosi River where it turns into a swamp, which makes it ideal for Sitatunga hunting. The swamp/savannah is of course accessible during the dry hunting season, which also enables us to get hold of those big Dagga Boys that hides in the reeds. Huge elephant are also taken from time to time on the islands inside the swamp. The swamp makes up about 16% of the concession. which is still very substantial for Sitatunga hunting. The rest of the terrain is made up by acacia woodlands combined with rolling, open savannah, favored by most plains game animals grazers!
