A note from Michelle Buchanan – Founder and Director

Firstly thank you for visiting our site and taking that first step in planning your next safari… I hope that we will be able to help you find exactly what you are after!

A little bit about us… I am a born and bred Zimbabwean & I grew up in a small farming community just outside of the capital Harare. My dad was a prominent Tobacco farmer and Professional Hunter. It was during these many trips to the infamous Zambezi Valley and other wild parts of Zimbabwe that my love of the outdoors was forever embedded. Upon finishing school I decided I needed to explore the big wide world and this lead to nearly a decade of living in England where I honed my sales and marketing skills working for some of the country’s biggest blue-chip organizations BUT Africa was calling and I returned home in 2010, where not long after the idea of Buchanan Hunts came about… After meeting with many clients throughout the years there seemed to be a common question:

WHO do I TRUST to book my next hunt through? How do I know I will get what I am being promised and who will answer all the questions that I have leading up to booking my ideal Safari…which airline do I use, who will help me do my rifle paperwork, will someone meet me at the airport?

This leads me to a question of my own…. Wouldn’t it be amazing to be able to bridge this gap between the Safari Outfitter and the hunter without it costing the client anything more than if they tried to do the research and book on their own?
ABSOLUTELY it would! However, there would have to be some serious groundwork to get this started and so, with my brother Andrew Buchanan (professional videographer) we worked out who we would want to work with and from there visited and hunted with each and every one of the Safari Outfitters we wanted to offer to our clients. Not only did we visit and hunt with everyone that we recommend but we have, over the many years of sending clients to them, developed lifelong friendships and partnerships with them all.

Please feel free to take a look around the site to find out a little more about what we offer and why it would benefit you to book through us as well as find out a little more about all the countries and destinations we cover. Please feel free to send me an email at michelle@buchananhunts.com or contact me on +1 817 933 9213 if you would like to discuss anything further…

I look forward to hearing from you and hope that I can be a small (helpful!) part in planning your dream safari, Michelle.
