Join WTA Senior Consultant, Travis Baker, for a 10-day Cape Buffalo and Plains Game safari. The unspoiled Niassa Reserve Concession in Northern Mozambique totals approximately 1,730,000 acres. This concession lies within the unspoiled, pristine Miombo woodlands. For 93-miles the perennial Lugenda River is the main lifeline of the region and forms their western border. The main safari camp is beautifully located high on the rivers bank with the most amazing views towards the west. Camp offers luxurious air-conditioned, en-suite lodge style accommodations, an open air bar, lounge and dining area under thatch, an indoor infinity pool, broadband internet and satellite TV upon request. Exceptional hunting and rare trophies in a traditional fashion with knowledgeable PH’s and skilled trackers. This concession offers some of the best buffalo hunting left in Africa. None of the buffalo hunting is done in the herds, only lone dagga boys or groups of bulls. The reserve is also home to 4 of the Big 5 as well as hippo and crocodile. There are healthy numbers of endemic species including the Niassa wildebeest, Böhms zebra, yellow baboon, Johnson’s impala, Roosevelt sable, Livingstone suni, eland, red duiker, Lichtenstein hartebeest, spotted hyena, kudu, warthog, bushbuck, bushpig, common duiker and waterbuck.
