    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.

    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 !

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