Our Objective is simple and clear - to promote hunting in Africa. And everything we do, focuses on this central mission. We believe that for the passionate hunters they are either hunting, or spend their time wishing they were hunting. This publication helps them get through that time when they are not actually in the bush. Our reader is more committed, more passionate and has tremendous interest in just about everything to do with the African Safari. From cover to cover the AHG brings you everything you need to know about hunting the great continent of Africa. From the southern tip of Africa to the northern reaches of Ethiopia, we go about pursuing our simple and unambiguous objective.

is it safe to visit africa? what is “safe”?

The media world has evolved. Changes have steadily corrupted our thinking. If it’s not the distortion of facts, then it’s the proliferation of an agenda – and for our industry, so detrimental - brain-washing generations of Westerners who have come to know “facts” upon which they base their views. All too often, powerful voices reach the very apex of global-decision bodies – against us! Do these voices even comprehend what 450 pounds of foliage looks like? It’s the daily requirement of just one elephant! Yet they feel equipped to dictate - and actually do - to us Africans, how to manage our elephants. No megafauna in the northern hemisphere to speak of under their watch, yet who questions this? Governments become too powerful, others become corruptible or are corrupted – and…

news & letters

Dear AHG I carry a few copies of AHG in my suitcase for reading while traveling. I read your editorial of a while back stating that it was your opinion that all hunters should discontinue the posting of the classic hero shot on social media. You are absolutely correct in the statement that posting these photographs does not present hunting in a positive manner. If anything, it fosters the impression which the antis persist in spouting, that we as hunters are only interested in the slaughter of animals. That single photograph is the crystallization of one five-hundredth of a second of an experience that has spanned a period of days, if not weeks. That single photograph does not reflect the total experience, and surely does not reflect the incentive for the…

re two free books...

Hi Richard Thank you for my books! They are Fabulous! I received them today and I can hardly put them down! In the one titled, "Africa's Legendary Professional Hunters", one of my dearest friends is in there, with two different PHs! Chris Kinsey and I grew up next door to each other and we still are very close. Chris and I have hunted together in the USA, but not together in Africa. I have only been once, and Chris has been numerous times, as you know. Also, I was friends with Tony Tomkinson, and I miss him dearly. He was very good to me, and always treated me like one of the guys, even though I can't begin to run with that crowd, if you know what I mean. So tragic for…

custodians of wilderness: sidinda, zambezi valley

A Transfrontier Conservation Area (TFCA) is defined as a component of a large ecological region that straddles the boundaries of two or more countries, encompassing one or more protected areas as well as multiple resource use areas. The Kavango-Zambezi (KAZA) TFCA lies in the Kavango and Zambezi river basins where Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe converge, and covers some 519 000 sq. kilometers. It was formalized in December 2006 when a memorandum of understanding was signed by the respective governments. The goal of the KAZA TFCA is “To sustainably manage the Kavango-Zambezi ecosystem, its heritage and cultural resources, based on best conservation and tourism models for the socio-economic wellbeing of the communities and other stakeholders in and around the eco-region through harmonization of policies, strategies and practices.” Safari hunting is…

from the cape to kasserine

This is the fourth book in Craig Boddington’s series describing his African hunting adventures; he writes one every decade, but for my money this is the best yet. Boddington is without doubt the preeminent contemporary writer of African hunting tales, and reading From the Cape to Kasserine (Safari press, 2018, 324 pages) it’s easy to understand why. To begin, his writing style is never pretentious; it’s simple, down to earth and easy reading. You never have to work, you can simply sit back and enjoy. Boddington also avoids the self-worshipping so many others fall prey to. He’s typically very self-effacing, not shy about relating his blown stalks, missed shots, or his fear of snakes. In essence, he’s just like the rest of us, and that relatability is in large measure why…

rigby caprivi knife

The Caprivi Knife, which shares its name with the 280 mile-long, wildlife and mineral-rich narrow stretch of land in Namibia famous for its abundant game, features an ebony wood handle, while the blade itself has been expertly crafted from Damascus steel. Further complementing the lines and stylish look, it has been engraved with Rigby’s famous ‘double R’ logo. This iconic logo has also been embossed on the accompanying handmade leather sheath, which ships with every Caprivi knife.
