The Trans African Hunting Group allows the opportunity to hunt and harvest World Record Class and Monster African Lions. Africa is the premier destination in the World to hunt Lions. Year round, we offer hunters  awesome Trophies for Lions. There are no seasonal restrictions on hunting the Lions, which makes it a suitable trophy year round.

Our hunters typically hunt the African Lions in conjuction with a 7-10 day African Safari. One of our Experienced and Licensed Professional Hunters will be your guide during your Lion Hunt. We typically hunt Lions by Safari Style, Spot and Stalk, or by Still Hunting if you are a Bow Hunter. We can accommodate all methods of Hunting for Lions including Rifle, Bow, Black Powder, Crossbow or Handgun. We can accommodate hunters of any age and experience level.

The Lions which we hunt on our  African Concessions are the biggest in the World. You can expect a Lion on average when hunting with us.

Currently, the Lions we hunt are not exportable worldwide, nowadays even to the U.S.A due to Donald Trumps Administration new policies. We also offer Lioness Hunts year round.

Rules for Export to U.S.A:

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service acted to protect all lions under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) while acknowledging that sport hunting could play a significant role in their conservation. The USA has an obligation under the ESA to make sure U.S. hunters are contributing to the conservation of lions in the wild by participating in hunting programs that provide a clear conservation benefit and contribute to the long-term survival of the species in the wild.

Two subspecies of lion are designated under the Endangered Species Act:

  • Panthera leo leo – listed as Endangered.
  • Panthera leo melanochaita – listed as Threatened, with a 4(d) rule that establishes a permitting requirement that ensures that hunting contributes to the survival of the species in the wild.

How does the Service decide whether to allow the import of a hunted lion?

To determine whether to allow imports of hunted lions, the Service considers factors such as the biological needs of the species; possible threats to the populations; current population estimates; management programs; legal protection (including hunting regulations and any applicable quotas); local community involvement; and, if any funds are generated by the import, how those funds are used for conservation.
