Mozambique

Overview

Mozambique has resurfaced on the hunting radar as one of the destinations to visit in modern times. However it has a rich hunting history, punctuated by a tragic and savage past. The country was once made famous by the likes of Harry Manners and Baron Werner Von Alvensleben before a violent civil war stalled the hunting industry. With peace treaties, new opportunities arose, and with it the hunting industry took tentative steps to recovery. Animals populations recovered, new areas were explored and mapped, jobs were created and effective sustainable utilisation conservation implemented in wild lands. The results speak for themselves. With the passage of time, and dedication by an intrepid few, a safari to this wonderful country is sure to bring not only great trophies but memorable moments of adventure in this legacy destination. Memories that are sure to rival anything from the golden days of safari. The country offers diversity of experience few others can match, from dangerous game hunting in wild untouched wilderness to deep sea fishing.

Luwire

With exclusive use of the camps in the 1.1 million acre concession, this unfenced area in the Niassa National Reserve is as remote and wild an experience that you could hope to get. We have three East African style tented camps along 250 km of very scenic river frontage. The camps are rustic yet comfortably appointed, set amongst the riverine bush of the famed Lugenda river.

You can look forward to beautiful views, hot showers en suite, ice cold drinks, wholesome good food, and even better company. We have a full complement of trained, locally sourced staff and laundry is done on a daily basis. There is also a generator in each camp providing 110 - 240 volts electricity.  Dangerous game hunting is what Niassa is becoming increasingly renowned for. Quality dagga boys, beautiful leopard and mature lions make for first class safari adventures. The plains game is characterised by regional endemics such as Roosevelt Sable, Niassa Wildebeest, Lichtenstein’s Hartebeest, Johnsons Impala and Boehms Zebra. The usual selection of plains game can also be hunted here, in particular very impressive East African Eland. If the aquatic species are your target, this area has crocodile and hippo available to the hunter.

Chipanje Chetu

This is a community area which has a great road network and is 1.4 million unfenced acres in extent. The camps are two permanent stone under thatch buildings and very comfortable. One is built in the Miombo woodlands, characteristic of this environment, and one on top of a small inselberg (small rocky hill). There are also two very comfortable tented fly camps that are put up for the season. All camps have hot showers and flush toilets. Each camp has a full complement of staff. Clients can expect good food prepared by our well trained cooks, and fresh laundry every day.

This part of Northwest Mozambique has Sable, Hartebeest, Reedbuck and Eland in profusion. It is common to take a daylight Leopard when hunting the early winter months, such is the abundance and relaxed nature of the cats there. If bowhunters are serious about harvesting a mature cat at close range in daylight, look no further than these two Mozambican areas. Other species offered on licence include the usual plains game such as waterbuck, warthog, bushpig and dangerous game species such as Buffalo and Lion.
