Mozambique is an african destiny chosen by veteran hunters in Africa, sometimes hunters made a safari before in countries like South Africa and Namibia. It is a destiny for experienced hunters who want to hunt elephant, lions, big buffalos, leopards, sables in totally wilderness.
Hunters will find in Mozambique some unique and varied hunting experiences. Located on the coast of the Indian Ocean, the hunting areas of Mozambique comprise a large portion of the country. The habitat in these areas consist largely of green savanna, forest glades and some dense forest which can make hunting in Mozambique quite challenging at times. The best hunting can be found in the more remote areas of the country near the borders of Tanzania and Zimbabwe. The large game reserves of these countries help to contribute to the larger animal populations found there.
The sable can be found in almost all of the hunting areas. In fact, nearly all of the antelope species can be found here, including nyala, Cape eland, greater kudu, Liechtenstein’s hartebeest and Chobe bushbuck, among others. Lion hunting is conducted by calling or tracking rather than baiting, as is popular in many other countries in Southern Africa. Leopards are abundant in many areas too.
Hunting Mozambique for crocodile can be a real challenge, as shot placement must be very precise. The croc can be found in abundance in the Zambezi River and Lake Gahora Bassa region. Where the croc is found, so is the great “Water Horse”. Hippo hunting, both on land and in water, can certainly be challenging. Hunting elephant is legal and the highest populations are to be found in the north and west. If hunting Mozambique for elephant, plan to do a great bit of walking. As they say: Elephant are hunted with the feet.
We organize hunts in National parks and private reserves. Once in the bush, tracking on foot becomes the order of the day. Terrain in most of the hunting areas tends to be flat, and thus not necessarily physically demanding. Camps are generally permanent fixtures with comfortable bungalows and food is good with plenty to eat. The hunting season runs from June through November.
