Richard Tabor
Richard TaborPartner & Professional Hunter
At the end of 2015, the time had come for different areas and new challenges and therefore have begun hunting in his own right. Rich joined forces with Mish and Andy, of Buchanan Hunts, as a partner and preferred Professional Hunter with the aim to offer their clients a diverse hunting experience with people they know and trust.

“We will take clients to the best areas for the trophies they want to get, maximizing their advantage and enabling them to fulfil their hunting dreams anywhere in Africa”

We often hear the phrase, “I am doing some research and looking at a number of options in Africa, but I am still waiting for a few of the Safari Outfitters to get back to me so that I can make a decision.”

~ Our answer is always the same ~

Wouldn’t it be the ideal situation to use one agency to do all the ‘leg work’ for you that doesn’t cost you a cent more than booking directly?

Buchanan Hunts are based in Africa and our ‘on the ground knowledge’ of all the Safari Operators and the areas they hunt out of, put us in the perfect position to assist YOU with the safari YOU are after. We only work with the very best in the industry and either Michelle or Andrew have visited all the areas personally. We are absolutely dedicated to helping you plan and book your hunting trips from start to finish. From assisting you in deciding which area would be best; finalising contracts and payments; arranging your firearms permits; visas; overnight accommodation requirements etc. We are ‘with you’ the whole way ~ right up until your beloved trophies arrive at home.

Whether you hunt with a gun or a bow, are looking for one of the Big Five/Exotic Species or any of the vast amount of plains game found throughout Africa, our close network of reputable outfitters, along with ourselves, will insure a successful well-planned trip for you and your companions. At Buchanan Hunts, we have done the research for you and would not recommend a trip or outfitter that we wouldn’t feel comfortable going with ourselves!
