My hunt with Safrique in Mozambique
This was written after my first trip with Safrique a couple years ago. Im headed back over to Mozambique in Oct. to film a buffalo and leopard hunt for my hunting show with Safrique once again. I will post an update on how the trip went as well:
Wally Returns from His First Safari Hunt from Mozambique with the great people of Safrique!
I just returned Home from my first Safari in the Country of Mozambique, and WOW. Ive hunted in Zimbabwe 7 times over the last 15 years, so I was excited about this trip. I was contacted by Safrique, Lda. about one of their new exclusive hunting concessions in the Niassa Province. Its the very Northern part of Mozambique, just across the Rovuma River from Tanzania.
I was the very first Hunter to hunt this new area with SAFRIQUE. Its so new, they were actually cutting new roads into the areas we hunted while I was there. We also came upon areas while hunting that they we were seeing for the very first time. Marking them on the GPS so they could cut roads into these areas later. I felt a little like Lewis and Clark some days!
This is a true HUNTERS HUNT. You have to work for the game, but the Trophy Quality is worth it. I took a Beautiful Lion, Sable, Zebra and Warthog.
I saw Waterbuck, Kudu, Eland, Reedbuck, Lichtenstein Hartebeest, Hippo, Duiker, Crocodile, Elephant and Leopard. I had an opportunity on many of these. But I was busy chasing down the Buffalo Dagga boys. They gave us a run for our money, getting close on a couple occasions, but they busted us each time.
I cant say enough about Matthew Muns and his staff at SAFRIQUE.
They did a First class job. The camp was great, the food was Fantastic, and my PH Ian Rutledge and I had a great time hunting together. SAFRIQUE offers Hunts on all of the Dangerous game on their place, Elephant, Lion, Buffalo and Leopard. This is truly the African Hunting Experience. You will typically do quite some walking after you have cut sign. But generally its not difficult, depending on what your after.
I was impressed how all the details were taken care of, especially having Matt meet us at the airport in Maputo and making sure everything went smoothly. I have been on enough of these trips to know, this makes a very big difference especially when traveling that far. Its also obvious from the start, how hard every one works to make sure the Safari is the best Hunting Experience you will ever have, and things go as smoothly as possible.
Theres nothing like Africa. And to be able to Hunt in an area that has never been commercially hunted in the past, I thought would be, "to good to be true". The results speak for themselves. I highly recommend this Hunt to anyone looking for not only Dangerous and Plains game, but the experience of a lifetime.
