    Additional information

    Chinanga Safaris is an owner run and managed business. Based in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, the operation is ably run by Terry Fenn who has over 30 years hunting experience in Zimbabwe. Terry's experience will ensure the correct selection of hunt areas best suited for the animals desired. Born and bred in Zimbabwe, Terry was a Game Ranger for National Parks and Wildlife Management for four years in the 1970's. He moved on to management of cattle/game ranching in both Zimbabwe (Nuanetsi Ranch) and in South Africa, as well as running small scale safari operations. Terry furthered his experience in cattle and game ranging at Lemco Ranch (Pvt) Ltd in 1986. In 1990, he joined Rusty Labuschagne and Safari Trackers on Angus Ranch, Save Conservancy, running the game ranch and safaris. He ultimately wrote and acquired his full professional hunting licence in 1994, leaving Angus Ranch at the end of 1996. Since 1996, Terry has been fully occupied as a freelance hunter/guide and has been employed by a total of 21 hunting/guiding operators in Zimbabwe.
