Make Africa’s most elusive cat your most highly-prized trophy
Hunting Leopard in Africa
Spotting a leopard is a privilege and the hunt is an exciting and challenging landmark for any dedicated hunter.
Track, stalk, and hunt one of Africa’s most dangerous cats on a safari you’ll never forget with the industry’s leading professionals at CV Safaris.
Off the back of a commitment to wildlife protection, CV Safaris obtains regular leopard hunting permits. Strategise and plan alongside experienced and knowledgeable industry experts.
Spotting a leopard in the African bush is a rare and memorable experience. The rosette patterns of their coats and colour of their fur seamlessly blends into the landscape, allowing them to stealthily observe prey and move over vast areas seemingly undetected. This notoriously elusive cat can cover large territories, changing course to mate and hunt. Leopards tend to move around at night, making a daytime encounter particularly fortunate.
As with any dangerous game species, leopard hunting is an exhilarating and unforgettable event in the life of any hunter. Their behaviour makes a leopard hunt an act of patience, will, and strategy – one that requires know-how on the terrain and species and a very specific technique to land this much-desired trophy. With potentially long-spanning days in the field and build-up preparation and planning, this demanding hunt is the pinnacle experience for many hunters.
At CV Safaris, the pristine reserve and traditional outlook on safaris and the sport of hunting makes for an outstanding and memorable African adventure. With personal attention and dedicated service from a team who has a lifelong affinity for the African bush and its wildlife, CV Safaris pulls out all the stops to offer hunters a traditional hunting safari underpinned by bush acumen and principles of good sportsmanship.
As the focus on wildlife protection – and the land set aside for this – increases, so too do leopard populations in South Africa. As such, leopard tags are granted with more frequency than in recent years. Motivated by a philosophy of sustainable wildlife practices, CV Safaris protects these precious animals through your support – maintaining wild habitats and funding ongoing conservation initiatives. Contact us to hear about the availability of leopard permits as they arise.
Having spent 74 days hunting Leopard over the years, Dow finally achieved his goal with CVS and Clive Curtis. 9 Cats on baits and many hours of hard work finally paid off with a superb Tom! Hunting feisty Bushpig at night with Darren Baker from a blind was a highlight for Greg. This was a truly rewarding safari for 2 fine hunters.
