This rich and varied habitat, with relatively small human population, has enormous potential and is regaining its once proud reputation as primary safari destination. Hunting Mozambique should be on every African hunters list.
Mozambique is famous for nyala, sable antelope, leopard, lion and big elephants. In the north, the hunting is virtually indistinguishable from hunting in neighboring Tanzania. The vast Nyasa Reserve is the largest game reserve in the country, at nearly 20,000 square miles. It is surrounded by hunting concessions, known as coutadas, where lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo are numerous. Further south the mighty Luganda River supports additional hunting concessions, where buffalo, sable, kudu, Nyasa wildebeest and leopard are common. The primary hunting areas in the famous Zambezi Delta, now boast the largest herds of Cape buffalo in southern Africa today, as well as high populations of sable, as well as nyala, waterbuck, kudu, bushbuck and reedbuck. The thick sand forest of the Delta is the best place in Africa to take a suni, both blue and red duikers, and it also has extraordinary warthogs.
