An African safari tops the bucket list of many a hunter, and for good reason. The big-game animals harvested here are among the fastest and most dangerous in the world, making for an adrenaline-pumping, heart-pounding thrill ride of a hunt. With grassy bushveld plains, stunning mountains and plateaus, vast, dry deserts, swampy wetlands, and lush rainforests, Africa has a richly diverse geography and no shortage of gorgeous views. Whether you’re after plains game or the Big Five, many of the animals found in Africa can’t be hunted anywhere else in the world. The countries of Africa are often in tumult, so hunting laws and climates for these areas change frequently, but current top destinations for international hunters are Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
