Plains Game Hunting in Mozambique

The rolling hills of the Sofala province of Mozambique offers some great plains game hunting. This region has seven of the Tiny 10 antelope species, exceptional free-range nyala, Roosevelt sable, Lichtenstein hartebeest, Livingstone eland, and Niassa wildebeest. Hunts in Mozambique are geared towards collectors after a specific subspecies of plains game, or trying to get your Tiny 10. They will probably be add-ons to a lion or Cape buffalo hunt.

The hunting for free range Nyala in Mozambique is very good. They inhabit dense forested areas and are known for their shyness, which can make them difficult to hunt. Male Nyala have striking spiral horns and a shaggy coat with white stripes on their legs.

Roosevelt Sable

Niassa Wildebeest

Niassa wildebeest hunting in Mozambique

Niassa (Nyasa or Nyasaland) Wildebeest has a horn configuration and black mane, beard and tail just like the Blue Wildebeest. This wildebeest has a distinctive white stripe (bar) across its muzzle and is found in south-central Tanzania and the northern regions of Mozambique known as Niassa. They can be hunted in both these counties.

The Tiny Ten

This hunt for the small antelope species in Mozambique will be primarily done on foot using the spot and stalk method. Once a trophy antelope is spotted, you will stalk to within shooting distance.  An accurate shot is necessary as these antelope make rather small targets. Stalking a member of the tiny ten is a lot more challenging and exciting than many hunters realize. With an abundance of these small antelopes present, you should be able to put several of these diminutive antelopes in the salt!

Mozambique offers seven of the 10 species in the Tiny Ten.

  • Livingstone Suni
  • Red Duiker
  • Blue Duiker
  • Oribi
  • Sharpe’s grysbok
  • Grey (common) Duiker
