African Lion Hunting Safari
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; Livingston 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.
