Crusader Safaris hunts Buffalo, Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Crocodile, Hippo and plains game in central/western Mozambique. This wild, free range wilderness area is classical Africa.

Mozambique is a country of unimaginable grandeur and beauty, from the warm Indian Ocean that washes 1500 km of its shoreline to the rugged mountains and sweeping bushveld of the hinterland. The Zambeze area is situated in western Mozambique; our hunting concession spans over one million acres and comprises typical Zambezi Valley ecosystems, in which there is an abundance and diversity of free-range dangerous and plains game. The area supports very healthy populations of Elephant, Lion, Leopard and Buffalo, and a diverse spread of plains game, including Eland, Sable, Chobe Bushbuck and Roan Antelope.

The extensive Northern Lake boundary is home to large numbers of Hippo and Crocodile and offers magnificent bird hunting opportunities. The area not only offers incredible hunting, but the lake and river provide excellent Tiger fishing, too. A relaxing sundowner on the boat is a great way to end a hard day of hunting! Getting to the area is really easy: a commercial flight to Tete in Mozambique and then a short charter to the main camp.

The Zambeze area has two camps: the Main camp on the south bank of the Zambeze river and the Mbadzi camp on the shore of Lake Cahora Bassa. Both these camps are authentic luxury camps in wild Africa with great views, Lion roaring at night and Hippo grunting in the river.

The season runs from April to the end of November, the hunting is good throughout this time and the fishing better in the early and later months. The Zambeze River area in Mozambique is wild free range, and authentic Africa; this compliments our South African hunting and adds to the Crusader Safaris experience.
