Lukwati South - Game Reserve – 2 300 000 ha
One of the best preserved and most productive hunting concessions in Western Tanzania, protected by both its remoteness from civilization and the efforts of a conservation minded outfitter who never over exploited the area. From the North Eastern shores of Lake Rukwa it climbs eastwards over the escarpment into the vast Miombo woodlands. Renowned for its excellent success-rate on heavy-maned Lions, big Buffalo, Sable and plentiful Leopard, Lukwati has a healthy combination of terrain and diversity of habitat: the lake, marshes, woodlands, rivers, open plains, rocky outcrops, mountains, belts of thicket and numerous rivers and springs.
The game available in Lukwati is Lion, Buffalo, Leopard, Elephant, Sable, Kudu, Roan, Eland, Hippo, Crocodile, Lichtenstein’s Hartebeest, Defassa Waterbuck, Zebra, Southern Reedbuck, Warthog, Oribi, Bush pig, Common Duiker, Impala, Hyena, Jackal. Lukwati is accessible by air charter from Dar es Salaam or Arusha to the airstrip near camp or by Scheduled flight to Mbeya and an estimated 6 to 8 hour drive to camp depending on road condition.
Lukwati South Game Reserve is a superb Lion and big game hunting area. It is truly the choice for the discerning hunter.
