Tanzania Professional Hunters’ Association

In the 1966, after each of the East African countries achieved independence the Tanzanian Wildlife Division called for the formation of the Tanzanian Professional Hunters Association (TPHA). On the 28th of April 1966 the TPHA was established and worked independently of the EAPHA, which continued with its mandate in Kenya and Uganda.

TPHA continues to work with the same focus as EAPHA, and is committed to elevating the competence, professionalism and the standard of ethics of all Tanzanian professional hunters.

Our members have attained necessary levels of competence, skill and ethics required for the responsibility of a professional hunter. We stand together with pride, and not only distance ourselves, but standup against those who threaten our profession and wildlife with unethical and unprofessional conduct.
