    What an awesome area! Hope you don’t have to dress up for dinner at that beautiful table! A 21 day DG hunt in a place like this would be a dream hunt!

    I would like to share a photo of a typical solitary old male lion from Mbizi that was seen a few days ago, unfortunately I did not had the camera with me and the photo from the mobile phone was not that good, but the lions are around.
    Cheers, Michael

    Updates from this year with Mbizi Safaris Zambia

    Pressure on poaching. Photo 1: Our anti-poaching unit 1 with snares, the silent killer in Africa... Photo 2 : Arresting of a poacher, Photo 3 : Anti poaching unit 2 doing well. Photo 4: Home made bullets & gun powder seized. With small ground units and a cooperation with ZAWA the fight continue to save the wildlife and animals of Africa. Important to know that income from selective hunting give direct financial support to running our anti-poaching units at Mbizi, and with a ban on hunting or even restricted import bans of hunting trophy's there will not be any animals left in this part of Africa because we will running out of financial possibility to keep the people on the ground to protect the wildlife from poachers !

    Happy clients that gives good recommendations, is perhaps the best a safari company can ask for, and it's our goal to have happy clients, thanks Chuck and see you soon.

    Went on my first Cape Buffalo safari last year in Zambia with @Mbizi Safaris, first class operation. My wife and I were the only ones in camp for the hunt. They also have Chobe bushbuck, Roan, Sable, Waterbuck, Lichtenstein Hartebeest, Puku etc.

    [​IMG]




    Puku / Kobus vardonii, is expanding slowly but safe in numbers on Mbizi. It's a most beautiful antelope found only in a few places in Africa, this one was photographed on Mbizi near the Luangwa river.

    [​IMG]



    Successful anti-poaching effort on Mbizi. These poachers have no respect for animals and wildlife, they brutally and indiscriminately kill everything they can. The arrest was confiscating undersized fishing nets and lion poison but also game meat that will send them for a long term prison sentence !

    [​IMG]



    Roan Antelope at Mbizi, small selective hunting offtake generate in good trophy quality.

    [​IMG]



    Nice grand final on Mbizi, a 40" buffalo with export tag to Norway, after that dinner on a sand island on Luangwa River.

    [​IMG][​IMG]



    Game scouting today, a Giant Warthog, Fantastic Kudu and a Decent Bushbuck by the swimming pool area, but he is on the safe side

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]



    New observation/hunting towers are build in Rosewood for selective trophy hunting.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]



    One poacher less today... well done to Mbizi anti-poaching group !

    [​IMG]



    Nice par of Warthog tusks... happy Swedish hunter at Mbizi.
