Sikunga Conservancy is home to our base camp, where we also offer fishing excursions on the Zambezi river to hunters who finish their hunt early or want to book a few leisure days before or after their safari.
This camp consists of brick and mortar bungalows with thatched roofs and can accommodate up to 12 guests of which a maximum of 4 can be hunters. We prefer not to have more than 4 hunters in camp at any given time, and then only if they booked together, to try and ensure that each hunting group maintains exclusivity.
Approximately 60% of the area consists of the Zambezi floodplains or open grasslands, with clumps of tree “islands”, while the other part consists of cluster-leafed Terminalia woodland. Most of the villages in this communal conservancy are located along the road into the camp, with a few cattle stations in the Terminalia thicket. This does not hamper the elephant movement though. Best time to hunt this area is mid-July to end of October. There is a small quota of plains game available in this area, and in the aforementioned period, plenty of elephants will also be encountered. Exceptional crocodile hunting and a limited quota of hippo are also available from this camp on the mighty Zambezi.
