    A year ago, myself and two friends of me decided to go to Africa for a buffalohunt.
    I have been to Africa once a year for the last 16 years, and this time I wanna go for a buffalo.
    For several years back I hunted with Kwalata Wildernes and Reinhard Heuser and Jaco Strauss.
    I contacted Jaco in the matter of buffalo, and I got a offer for buffalohunt in Mozambique.
    Jaco is running the business Kwalata Safaris, and have some cooperation with Hardus van Zyl (Cabassa safaris)
    The huntingarea is laying ond the north side of Zambezi river in the dry area (not the swamp) not far from the city of Quelimane.
    We are booking flight from Oslo - Jo,burg - Quelimane, there are a flight from Jo.burg to Quelimane I think it is LAM.
    After the Cyclone they hope the infrastructure is in order so we can go there in September, otherwice we will be hunting in Qoutada 10.
    We can hunt for Buffalo, and hopefully we also can add a extra buffalo, we can also hunt Sable, Croc, Hippo, Chobe bushbuck and several antilopes.
    The whole trip included everything except airlinetickets cost us 16025 USD.
    Any of you guys that have been to this area before?
    I know that after this cyclone the Cholera is an epidemic an also the Malaria mosquito is exploding. so we need to take the Cholera vaccine, the Malaria pills are a must I know.

    I can't help with any information on the area, but I hope you have a great hunt. I also hope you post a report for us when you get back!

    Good luck. It sounds like some were much luckier than others.

    I hunted Mahimba in 2015 or so. That is very close to where you will be and may actually be the same area. Lots of buffalo, nothing huge but plenty of mature bulls. At the time plains game was plentiful as were crocs. A 12’ croc was good for the area. You should ask about plains game numbers. I understand that poaching was pretty tough during the year or so that the outfitters pulled out due to unrest in the area. Take your malaria meds and get a global rescue membership. It’s remote! Don’t spend time in Quelimane if you can help it.

    I spoke with Hardus at DSC, I am guessing you will have a great hunt. Very enthusiastic and passionate young man.

    Very familiar with Jaco.... supercool dude from all that I have ever heard. Big personality. Also, knowledgeable with the Quelimane (kill a man) Hunting area as well as the Coutada. All premier locations. Was the $16k just for 1 Buffalo and other species can be added on? Or $16k buffalo & other species included?

    You’ll have a great experience I bet. Great PH in historic grounds.

    Safe travels.
