Africa Lion Hunting Safari in Mozambique
African Lion Hunting Safari
- Hunting is done over bait
- Success is never guaranteed, but it is likely.
- You can expect to hunt old, mature male lions that are a minimum of 5 to 6 years old.
- Hunts are 21 days
- Safari can also be extended if necessary to ensure that you get your trophy.
This is one of the only areas left in all of Africa where you can hunt truly wild, free ranging lions in a huge area of over 200,000 acres.
This is the type of African lion hunting Safari you read about in Outdoor Life as a kid. You will hunt lions out of traditional tented camps on more than 200,000 acres in Mozambique. Mozambique offers some of the last, truly wild areas left in Southern Africa. Free roaming prides of lions, cape buffalo, and leopards are common in the area, as are local, native plains game species which include Roosevelt Sable; Livingston Eland; Lichtenstein Hartebeest; and Niassa Wildebeest.
Lion hunting in Mozambique is done over bait. Usually bait will be a buffalo or plains game animal from one of the previous hunts. A lion hunt almost always follows directly behind a buffalo hunt so that lions can be pre-baited before you even arrive in camp. The ideal situation is for you to arrive and already have the baits being hit. Calling is sometimes used as well. Electric, remote callers can be very effective in some situations. Trail cams are used to identify trophy males that are hitting the bait. Hunts are guided 1-on-1, plus trackers. Once you have taken your lion, there are cape buffalo as well as many species of plains game to hunt on a trophy fee basis. Species include Roosevelt Sable; Livingstone Eland; Lichtenstein Hartebeest; and Niassa Wildebeest.
You will be staying in rustic, traditional African fly camps equipped with gas operated hot, running water; showers; flush toilets; fully-equipped, gas operated kitchens; and solar panel electric lights and plugins for your electrical equipment.
I won a hunt from Outdoors International and it turned out to be one of my most memorable and rewarding hunts. I have always dreamed about an African Safari, but never thought it would be a reality for me. Even better, I was able to share the experience with my father.
Thank you Outdoors International!
Hey Cory. Things are great here in Africa! Everyone is having a wonderful time and the girls have been kept busy. My daughter is even learning to drive a standard safari wagon. Believe me, it’s been great! Hunting is out of this world. Staff is treating us like kings. Couldn’t ask for more. Thank you.
I was one of the super lucky guys to win this hunting safari and it was the most amazing thing I’ve ever done. I took a 54” kudu bull, 26” wildebeest (wild hunt!), an old warrior warthog, a beautiful zebra mare (she was so big we thought she was a stallion) and 3 impalas with 2 being over 23 inches! I am so grateful for this opportunity they provided. Thank you to Outdoors International, and all the PHs and staff. I made some new friends and will be back to see them 100%.
I must say that I am very satisfied with the hunt. It was a tough hunt. We got the leopard the next last night.
I have dreamed of hunting cape buffalo with a bow in Africa since I was 12 years old, and now here I was 28 years later standing in the tall grass of the Limpopo on my dream hunt for a trophy cape buffalo with my bow in hand in complete and utter shock.
