THE HUNTING AREA
Located in the Nyassa province, around 200 km east of Lichinga, the territory covers an area of around 420 000 hectares. The landscape is a mixture of Miombo forests and plains, very similar to the Selous game reserve in Tanzania. The Lugenda river which flows throughout the year delimits the western perimeter of the zone over many kilometers. The river then flows into the Ruvuma which acts as a border with Tanzania. Elephant, leopard, lion, Cape buffalo, Sable antelope (in large quantities) and Livingstone eland can all be found on our territory as well as a variety of other species: Crawshay’s Zebra, Lichtenstein Hartebeest, Ringed Waterbuck, Chobe Bushbuck, Common Reedbuck, Warthog, Bush pig (Red River hog) and Bush duiker in large quantities.
There are also Nyasa wildebeest, Hippopotamus, Crocodile, grysbok and Greater Kudu but in slightly smaller quantities.
TRAVELING TO MOZAMBIQUE
Several airlines serve Maputo (TAP, Emirates, Ethiopian Airlines, etc.). You will most likely have to spend a night in Maputo before taking the internal transfer Maputo-Lichinga flight which typically leaves early in the morning with the LAM company (3 to 4 flights per week). The camp is a 3 and a half hour long drive from Lichinga Airport.
