Hunting Safari Prices in South Africa
Due to the fact that we arrange hunting safaris in 3 different, independent Southern African countries, ie. South Africa, Namibia and Mozambique, our rates and tariffs regarding day fees, transportation fees, prices for the different huntable species and taxidermy arrangements will obviously differ from one country to the other. In general our Terms & Conditions are en large, applicable to activities within all 3 countries we operate, albeit there are some minor differences that will be discussed when you book a safari with us.

Rates: Mozambique

We offer and conduct hunts in the country of Mozambique within the Tete province on the southern shore line of Lake Cahorra Bassa, sandwiched between the lake and international northern border of Zimbabwe. The hunting camp is situated on a slight rise on the shoreline of this water body and a five hour road trip to the west from the capital of Tete and the airport which is the local point of arrival from South Africa’s Johannesburg International (OR Tambo) via SAA Airlink. The area is not owned by us but we have a perfectly legal agreement with the owner to utilize it and the available quota, as we have done the past number of years. These hunting grounds are in excess of 938 000 acres (yes, nine hundred and thirty eight thousand)this being said, however can easily be interpreted wrong by the reader and prospective big game hunter. Firstly, most of this area is not traversable by 4×4 hunting vehicle as there is not much of a road system to access it and secondly it may create the wrong impression regarding necessary habitat for big game animals. All animals need a constant supply of water which result in game moving in a relatively “narrow belt” of approximately 15 miles adjacent to the water and this is where we hunt. African big game species we offer in the area are mainly for Cape buffalo, Nile crocodile and Leopard. Due to USFW and CITES limitations regarding the export and import of trophies from Mozambique to the States, Elephant and Hippo are off the menu for USA hunters. Unless…both species are available with legal Mozambique hunting licenses to American hunters wanting to hunt these two species on a non-exportable quota should they wish? The hunts here are not for the faint hearted and it must be made clear that the area is not a high density species habitat. Apart from buffalo, crocodile and leopard there are limited plains game species such as Sable, Chobe bushbuck and Bush pig on quota. These hunts are “old school” meaning that most of the hunting is hard core, especially for buffalo and following these bovine’s tracks on foot. Leopard hunts are conducted from the classical hanging of meat baits hung in potential good spots (pun intended)where these predators move from blinds constructed from natural vegetation. Although the official hunting season in Mozambique starts in April and run through to end November annually, it definitely is not advisable to safari hunt all these months. Rain, very dense, tall and thick grass and other vegetation limit successful hunting early in the season and the latter part normally is incredibly hot with very high discomfort temperature levels. The months of June, July and August are undoubtedly the most practical for your Mozambique hunting tripwith the highest possible potential for success. CAPE BUFFALO 11 days inclusive of day of arrival and day of departure CROCODILE 8 days inclusive of day of arrival and day of departure Daily rate p/d – 7 Days: $ 7 000 Trophy incl.
