We are currently hunting in 3 concessions in the Niassa province of Moçambique. We are utilizing 2 hunting blocks within the Niassa reserve and 1 block bordering the Niassa reserve. Niassa is the jewel of big game hunting within Moçambique. All free range areas cater for some of the best and dangerous game safaris in Africa. All our areas have an abundance of game and our camps are all of the East African tented style with ensuite bathrooms. Niassa has vast stretches of open Savannah, mountains and hill country. Big herds of buffalo roam these plains together with an abundance of lion, leopard and plains game species. Most flights are direct to Lichinga and then road transfers to camp and back.
Our Zambezi river concession is located on the South Bank of the Cahorra Bassa lake and also on the Zambezi River. The area consists of open Savannah and some mountains but rather flatter ground that makes hunting not so difficult. All dangerous game and normal plains game species reside in the concession block. These areas are known for its giant crocodiles and plenty hippo. Our camps are also East African tented style with ensuite bathrooms. Major flights are direct to Tete.
The Moçambique Hunting season starts in May and ends in November.

Firearms importation into Moçambique
We recommend you consider booking with SAA direct from Johannesburg to Tete or to the closest airport to the hunting area where you will be hunting. It is of utmost importance that you give us your flight details 90 days before arrival as we need to arrange your firearm import permits into Moçambique and this permit needs to state port of arrival and departure. We also need the exact amount of ammo you are bringing into Moçambique so we can add this onto your rifle import permit. There will be an amount of ± 4$ per 375 calibre and up, as well as tax on the airport for the ammo your are bringing along - this is a government tax not controlled by us. We can also recommend to plan your arrival and departure from Moçambique to fall within the week days and not on a weekend - this ensure that you travel with SAA.
