Welcome to the John X Safaris website!
Hunting season runs from the 1 June to the 30 November.
Coutada 11 and 12 are both unique concession areas bordering one another. Their habitat varies from sand forests, savannah, flood plains and swamps giving the hunter a combination of habitats that hold a variety of species. The terrain in both areas is generally level and undulating with Coutada 12 being more forested than 11. Coutada 11 boasts swamps in the east of the concession, making for exciting buffalo hunting, while 12 enjoys more Elephant and forest Buffalo. It is one of the few areas where one has the opportunity of a true classical safari hunting Buffalo, Hippo, Elephant, Crocodile, Leopard and plains game on one safari.
The weather in Mozambique is generally warm and you can expect rain throughout the year. Average temperatures range from 65f - 95f, with some days reaching over 100f from October – January. There are three camps within the two concessions. Accommodations vary from comfortable East African style tented camps to an Old Portuguese hunter's camp that has recently been revamped. All rooms enjoy en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water. Both camps run generators and solar plants generating 220v electricity.
Hunts vary in length with a minimum of 7 days to a maximum of 21 days, with the recommended being 10 days. All hunts are done in groups, a minimum of 3 hunters per group and a maximum of 6 in both areas.
Please be reminded that the minimum caliber requirement for dangerous game in Mozambique is the 375.
Lastly, the Mozambican government views the safari industry in a positive light and sees sustainable hunting as a valuable conservation tool within rural communities. Most rural communities rely on meat provided by the safari operators during the hunting season and all hunters can feel assured that their contribution is adding to conservation development in Mozambique. All in all, Mozambique has turned the corner and seems to be on the road to becoming one of the great African Safari destinations once again.
