Lukwati South Game Reserve is one of the best-preserved and most productive hunting concessions in Western Tanzania. Protected by its remoteness from civilization, Lukwati offers you what hunting in Africa is all about: it is unspoiled, untamed and unpredictable.
From the North Eastern shores of Lake Rukwa it climbs eastwards over the escarpment into the vast Miombo woodlands and is 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 including 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, and Jackal.
Lukwati is accessible by air charter from Dar es Salaam or Arusha to the airstrip half a kilometer from camp or by scheduled flight to Mbeya followed by an estimated 6 to 8 hour scenic drive to camp depending on road conditions.
Lukwati South Game Reserve is a not only a superb Lion and big game hunting area, it truly is the choice for the discerning hunter.
