Theo Bronkhurst, the Zimbabwean guide who led the hunt in which Cecil the lion was killed, has appeared in court in Hwange town, about 435 miles south of Harare.
He has been charged with failing to prevent an illegal hunt, charges he denies.
John Ray, ITV News's Africa correspondent, reports:
The Zimbabwean hunter who led the expedition that killed Cecil the lion has appeared in court.
Theo Bronkhorst, who runs a safari company, will stand trial on September 28 on charges of organising an illegal hunt.
Bronkhorst denies any wrongdoing over the hunt in July, when US dentist Walter Palmer paid to shoot Cecil with a bow and arrow.
On Wednesday he said the case against him was "frivolous" and "wrong".

An ally of Cecil, the lion killed in Zimbabwe by an American hunter last month, is not dead, a researcher monitoring the pride has said, contradicting earlier reports that Jericho had been killed.
"He looks alive and well to me as far as I can tell," said Brent Stapelkamp, field researcher for the Hwange Lion Research Project, which is monitoring the lion with a GPS tag.
Yesterday, a group called the Zimbabwean Conservation Task Force, which is not an official government agency, posted on its Facebook page that Jericho had been killed after a case of "mistaken identity".
The report was then picked up by media outlets and prompted a furious reaction on Twitter where animal lovers had already been expressing their fury at the killing of Cecil, a rare black-maned lion, that was a popular tourist attraction.
Stapelkamp said readings from Jericho's GPS tag indicated he was moving around as usual and appeared to be with a female.
When I heard that report, I had a look on the computer and his movements look regular. He sent a GPS point from his collar from 8:06 p.m. (1806 GMT). Everything looks fine.
