African Safaris (Hunting Consortium)
The Hunting Consortium in Africa No other continent on earth has captivated hunters' hearts as has Africa, for no other continent can boast the richness or diversity of game, or the uniqueness in hunting experience. The "dark" continent, with its myriad of ecosystems and biotypes has been the "Mecca" for big game hunters for more than 200 years. The Hunting Consortium offers a full range African safari options in 16 African countries and our staff has personally hunted and or visited every concession or area we recommend. The best years are passing now for this hunting paradise. Exploding human populations across Africa are consuming more and more land for agriculture and settlement. Dangerous game has been pushed into ever shrinking reserves or simply exterminated by governments to make way for the ever growing numbers of people and livestock. Areas that just 10 years ago saw herds of buffalo numbering in thousands are now devoid of game and the trend continues. The times have already drastically changed since the days of Theodore Roosevelt, Robert Ruark, and Ernest Hemingway. These are the last of the "good old days"! For more than 30 years The Hunting Consortium has arranged African safaris for a wide variety of customers, from middle-income "once in a lifetime" hunters, to wealthy collectors who hunt every season in Africa. We pride ourselves in giving expert advice geared to individual requirements and in tailoring every safari to the needs and goals of each client. The Hunting Consortium Ltd. has owned safari companies in Tanzania and South Africa and is thoroughly familiar with the intricacies of the hunting industry in Africa. We are uniquely qualified to navigate the sometimes bewildering plethora of offers and options for hunting safaris present in the marketplace today. We know personally every operator we recommend and we visit the concessions frequently to keep our information current.
