John Sharp Safaris is a hands-on business and committed to personal service. I will meet you at the airport and guide you through the formalities, and then drive you to the camp. After the safari I will see you safely checked through to your final destination on your homeward journey. I personally attend to the day to day running and maintenance of the camps and the hunting equipment. I am committed to honesty – you will never be sold an animal or trophy size which does not exist on the property. I am committed to ethical fair chase hunting.

Property & Location
Most camps are stone under thatch with en suite bathrooms. Dining and bar areas are separate and most camps have pools. Each camp has its own chef, waiter, room attendant, gardener and assistant skinner
The concession is 350,000 hectares or 850,000 acres or 3,740 square kilometres in extent and has 9 exclusive camps each with its own exclusive hunting area surrounding it.
The terrain is flat in the south and becomes undulating as you move further north, with the extreme north sporting many granite kopjes - pretty spectacular scenery. Today, thriving herds live in balance on the open savannah, mopani woodlands and in the dense riverine forests. The diverse habitats found in the Bubye Valley Conservancy now support an astonishing 35 species of wild, free-ranging game animals including the classic Big Five.
The conservancy currently boasts the world’s fourth largest black rhino (Diceros bicornis) population.
- Pvt Owned
The property is fenced around the perimeter with a double electrified fence. Two of the areas are individually ring fenced as they are separated from the main conservancy by prescribed roads - both operate as stand alone areas of around 70,000 acres each. Tribal areas surround the conservancy so the fences are primarily there to keep the animals from destroying crops and preying on the locals' cattle, goats and sheep.
Toyota Land Cruisers fully kitted with onboard refrigerators and winches.
Nyala over 30", numerous 45" buffalo, numerous lions in the 26" to 27" bracket, many huge leopards of 17" and over, Waterbuck over 30" and Kudu over 60".
