Our First-Hand Experience

We were completely smitten!  Our jovial host had us entertained from the moment we landed to departure.  On arrival, we spent the night at the outfitters beach lodge and enjoyed a sunset walk along the beach.  Local fishermen chisel their own colorful wooden canoes which dot the beach as we walked along.  We had dinner of fresh lobster in the outdoor dining area set by the infinity pool overlooking the beach in the distance.

Our private charter flight the next morning took us high above granite fields.  Just before landing we circled the thatched lodge set on a small cliff overlooking the bolder filled river.  As we entered the main lodge, we were taken back by this stunning view and infinity pool set in the center of the lodge.   The fire pit beckoned us to sit and stare at the “bush TV”.  I could scarcely take it all in.  Hippos, Leopards, Lions and more are known to roam through camp.  Mozambique did not disappoint.

The land was varied, enormous, thick in areas, open in areas, with river beds meandering through it.  We saw herds of Cape Buffalo though well camouflaged, Waterbuck, Impala, Sable, sign of elusive Leopards, Guinea Fowl and numerous other animals.  To top off our trip, we flew by helicopter to a remote island and hiked through the mangroves from island to island.  Magnificent!  Mozambique will forever be etched in our memory.

Mozambique Luxury Hunting Safari

This Mozambique luxury hunting safari is located within the unspoiled, pristine Miombo woodlands of the massive and legendary Niassa Reserve in Northern Mozambique.  Imagine hunting 1,700,000 acres of wild Africa!  Known as the finest area for daytime leopard hunts and exceptional Buffalo hunting.

Because the western boundary for 36 miles is the meandering Lugenda River, the main lifeblood of the region all animals make their way here in the drier months of the year.  What this means to you is the that game is consentrated on this beautiful Mozambique hunting safari property from July to the end of the year where the water source is most prime.

The main camp is superbly located high up on this river’s banks. With the most amazing views towards the west and offers luxurious under thatch air-conditioned lodges with en-suite bathrooms, an open-air bar, lounge and dining area, graced with a superb infinity pool for your leisure. The camp has broadband Internet and satellite TV (upon request).

There are several international and domestic commercial flights to Pemba from where you will be escorted through to your private 1 hour charter flight to camp. The sheer beauty and magnitude of the granite mountains, towering over the Miombo forests, open grasslands, bamboo thickets, floodplains and riverine forests and the mind-boggling diversity of this biosphere is unequalled on the African Continent.

This visual symphony, together with the cultural richness of the area and the humble and friendly nature of the local people, will ensure a trip of a lifetime.

Since your Mozambique hunting safari is located near the gorgeous islands just off the coast in the Indian Ocean, adding on a few days of touring is a natural finale for your adventure in Mozambique.

Hunting

The hunting season in Mozambique is from 15th May to 30th November.

The Niassa Reserve falls within the subtropical region of the country and receives on average 1000mm (40”) rain per year. The rainy season coincides with the heat and humidity from December through April. Winter, which is the dry season, stretches from May to mid-September and this is then also the coolest time to visit the country. Average day temperature ranges between 20°C and 30°C (68°F and 86°F). Animals become more visible from May through to November as the bush dries out and they tend to congregate close to water sources. August, September and October are the best months to hunt for predators while November is very good for buffalo as it is the driest time of the year.

We are very specific with what we hunt, no buffalo or sable hunting is done in the herds, only lone bulls or groups of bulls are perused. Sable bulls must show secondary growth of 1” at the base of the horn, which ensures that they are over 7 years of age. With regards to the hunting of leopard and lion, we adhere to a strict protocol which ensures that we hunt these animals sustainably.

If you are after a daytime leopard, the best time to hunt them is before the end of August. Hunting is allowed at night, with artificial light, but only for lion, leopard, crocodile and bushpig. Hunting of female, young and/or immature animals is prohibited. hunting is proper spot and stalk for mature animals.

FAQ

Health Issues

Mozambique is a malaria destination, so it is advisable to take malaria prophylactics before arriving in the country. Adequate clothing as well as mosquito repellent are important to minimize mosquito bites.  Tsetse flies are also found in the area, but pose little to no risk of acquiring African trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness). Avon Skin So Soft can work wonders!  Each hunter is advised to bring a small personal medical kit with necessary preferred medication for headaches, colds, burns, allergies etc.
