Hunting will be done by finding a big bull track in a dry river bed and then tracking him sometimes for many hours. Once your bull is spotted, you and PH will plan your stalk.The safari vehicle is sometimes used to locate tracks, but all hunting is done on foot. Cape buffalo hunts are guided 1-on-1, plus trackers.
All buffalo hunts in Mozambique are ten days to make sure that you are successful. Your Safari can also be extended if necessary to ensure that you get your trophy.Trophy quality is exceptional. Mozambique is truly the untouched gem of Africa. One of the few areas in Africa that still permits big game hunting. You can expect to hunt good, old, hard-bossed bulls (Dugga Boys).
Once you have taken your buffalo, there are many species of plains game to hunt on a trophy fee basis. Species include Roosevelt Sable; Livingston Eland; Lichtenstein Hartebeest; and Niassa Wildebeest.
*If permits are available, it is possible to combine your buffalo hunt with lion and/or leopard, however this needs to be planned out prior to your hunt. Lions and leopards take planning before hand to ensure success.
Travel to Mozambique is safe and fairly straight forward.
Your Professional Hunter will meet you the moment you clear customs at the Johannesburg airport. They will meet you as you exit customs and walk you to the rifle permit office to retrieve your gun. You and your PH will overnight at a lodge 5 to 10 minutes from the airport that caters only to hunters.
The next morning, you will fly to Pemba, Mozambique. From there, you have two options, an 8 hour drive to the hunting area, or a charter flight directly there. We suggest the charter as it will save you a hunting day.
You will also accompanied back to the airport at the end of your safari. You will feel safe and well taken care of for your entire hunt.
Your buffalo hunt will be conducted out of rustic, traditional African fly camp in the heart of the 200,000+ acre concession. Elephant and leopard hunts are conducted out of a fixed tented camp with a thatch roof.
Both camps are equipped with gas operated hot, running water; showers; flush toilets; fully-equipped, gas operated kitchens; and solar panel electric lights and plugins for your electrical equipment. All tents are en-suite with their own private bathroom, comfortable beds, and screened to keep out insects. A satellite phone is available for emergency communication.
The food on the hunt is organic, and sourced from the local area. Fresh fruit and vegetables are purchased from local markets and the venison is hunted in the area. Due to the nature of this hunt, it is difficult to have a planned dinner as you may arrive in camp at 6PM or later.
A day’s meals consists of an early morning breakfast before you leave camp, a snack lunch is provided in the bush, and dinner upon your return to camp from hunting for the day. Local cold beer, soda, wine or hard liquor will be available. There are running refrigerators in the back of the Safari vehicles.
