Welcome to the John X Safaris website!
Currently there are 23 game species available on quota. The three distinct ecosystems surrounding the delta provide habitat for these species.
The sand forests have excellent populations of Red and Blue Duiker, Leopard, and Livingstone Suni. The fringes are home to Chobe Bushbuck, Nyala, Spotted Hyena, and Bushpig, while the tropical savanna has herds of Sable, Livingstone Eland, Cape Buffalo, Zebra, Lichtenstein Hartebeest and Oribi. The flood plains during the drier months of the hunting season have hundreds of Waterbuck, Warthog, and Common Reedbuck. The swamps are home to Elephant, Hippo, Crocodile, and some of Africa's largest herds of Cape Buffalo.
As a member of cites Mozambique has a CITES quota for both Elephant and Leopard, which are classified as CITES 1. There are currently 40 elephant on quota for Mozambique, and many exceptional trophies have been taken, including a few making the magical 100-pound mark. Most of these big elephant have been taken in the northern regions of Niassa. Unfortunately, because the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service does not recognize Mozambique's Elephant quota, it currently will not allow the import of Mozambican Elephant trophies; however, it does allow leopard imports into the country. Elephant trophies hunted in Mozambique by Europeans may be imported into Europe.
