South Africa

South Africa has been an important big game hunting area for many years, due to 95% of the hunting areas being fenced. Good control and breeding of quality animals has come out of South Africa, as many hunters have come back with the trophies they have asked for.

In today's life, many people do not have time to take off for hunting, so South Africa it the country to hunt in, however there is a misconception about hunting in fenced areas, although that is the law in the country if you want to keep the game. In my view, the areas we hunt in are so large that we hardly ever see any fences. The future of quality trophies and hunting is in the heart of South Africa.

Prices for our big game hunting are P.O.R. and the reason for this is the de-valuation of our Rand. Our prices change on a regular basis on our big game hunting.

Mozambique

Welcome to our Mozambique Big Game Hunting page.

Mozambique is to me one of the unique African countries I have enjoyed to hunt and experience, the country is so diverse in terrain and game that one cannot stop to think or even understand how beautiful this country is, it is properly one of my very favourite hunting areas. We have few hunting operators that we use that already have been in the areas for many years with a lot of experience to make your hunt a very special one. Due to the vast areas in Mozambique for traveling we will gladly advise you and how to plan your trip.

The areas where Cape Town Hunting Safaris operate for their clients are in the Niassa Reserve, Tete and Beira areas.

The Niassa Reservation is situated on Northern Mozambique along the River Rovuma, natural border of Tanzania. It occupies an area of 40.000km2, of which 20.000km2 are cap area. It's about the same area of Kruger National Park in South Africa.

The Niassa Reservation and the cap area covers part of the Cabo Delgado Niassa provinces, it is currently the biggest forest and wildlife protection and conservation area of Mozambique.

Here you will find the biggest concentration of hunt in the country. The last air census in 2010 showed an immense richness and diversity of wildlife. Of this count stands out of a population of 22.000 elephants at least 18 make elephants tipped the 100 pounds each side were identified. The Reserve and buffer zone also have majestic Sables 9000 and several thousand Cape Buffalo, Liechtenstein hartebeest, eland and zebra.

There is a huge population of Kudu, Bushbuck, Impala, Wilderbeest Niassland (Gnu), Waterbuck, Reedbuck (Chango), Bushpig, Hippo, Crocodile, Warthog and duikers.
