Please do not exaggerate and twist facts to make a case for illegal hunting in Africa.
There are no lions, tigers or wolves selling soda pop in kiosks in the African towns.
On the contrary, few friends went to safari near Zambia and Zimbabwe border and even after driving around for 4 hours all they could encounter were deers, chimps and some wild cows.
It seems there are no lions or tigers or Rhinos and other exotics found in safaris easily.
Last week, the cargo division of South Africa's national carrier, SAA, lifted an embargo that had been in place since April on the transport of legally acquired hunting trophies of African lion and elephant, rhinoceros and tiger. reuters

Well all the public outrage has moved things in the right direction, all major american airlines will no longer transport trophy animals. And America is reviewing to put the African lion on the endangered list, this would then stop any rich private charters, at least it would be totally illegal. And later if an American decided to post a picture of them standing over a dead lion they had just shot, they would be in legal troubles.
