PACKING - MOZAMBIQUE

Packing List for Mozambique

Mozambique is generally warm but you can expect rain throughout the year. Average temperatures range from 65f - 95f, with some days reaching well over 100f from October – January.

The following list is a general guideline of what to bring on safari. There is a daily laundry service except for the days of arrival/departure and days away at spike camp, very seldom more than 1-2 nights. Pack light ensuring you have the basic comfortable clothing/equipment and keep in mind you'll be traveling from Beira to camp in a charter plane with limited space.

Packing List:

  • 2 Pairs of good walking boots or running shoes (walked/run in)
  • 1 Pair of swamp boots for Mozambique Swamp Buffalo hunts only. We recommend All Star type sneakers
  • 4 Pairs of good socks
  • 3 Pairs of long hunting pants (Dark Khaki or Olive Green)
  • 3 Pairs of short hunting pants
  • 3 Pairs of hunting shirts (Dark Khaki or Olive Green)
  • 1 Realtree coverall with zipper for Mozambique Swamp Buffalo hunts only
  • 1 Hunting Jacket - Realtree type camo (Dark Khaki or Olive Green)
  • 1 Warm sweater or jumper
  • Light Weight rain gear for Mozambique
  • Sun Screen
  • Cap or Hat
  • Casual wear for evenings, very relaxed

Extra Gear:

  • Binoculars
  • Camera/s 
  • USB flash drive or SD card for copying your PH’s pictures to take with you
  • Camera/Binocular lens cleaning cloth
  • Flashlight
  • Pocket knife
  • Sunglasses & sun block SPF 30
  • Small backpack for daily equipment while hunting (e.g. cameras, extra ammo)

  • Chap stick or lip balm
  • International plug set - conversion to South Africa 220 V
  • Insect repellant - Mosquito repellent preferably containing DEET
  • Extra prescription glasses if required
  • Spare batteries if required
  • Rifle cleaning kit, regular wipe down set
  • Prescription drugs if required
  • Toiletries
  • Baby/Wet wipes for the ladies on safari
  • Malaria prophylaxis
  • First aid is on hand in camp and in all hunting vehicles, but it would be wise to bring your own requirements along
  • Skin so Soft by Avon for Tsetse flies
  • Rifle soft case - For all charter flights 1 soft case per gun as hard cases don't always fit into the small planes, we will arrange storage at point of departure if required
  • Taxidermy tags if you have your own Taxidermist (shipping Instructions)
  • Any CITES permits you may require

Please Note:

Military type camo is not permitted in most African countries, but Realtree types are normally accepted.

What People Are Saying

Three generations of hunters, who had their 1st safari and 1st kill with John X Safaris.

~ Paul Adams Jr. '15 from

"Juan did an excellent job as PH and Steven worked hard as tracker and skinner. Top quality accommodations, friendly atmosphere and Willem was a great host. John X showed me again that they are a 1st class operation. Many thanks to Carl, Gary and all the staff for a job well done!"

~ Jim Haselberger '12 from USA

"My Safari far exceeded my expectations!!! Rusty was awesome! I had the time of my life. I can think of many great moments, but sneaking up onto my Nyala and ending up with a Kudu was one of the most exciting moments in my life. The praise can go on, but in short - I will return!!! Staff was great, all the PH’S fun, they worked together for a great hunt and great times."

~ Joe Kapaun '13 from

My third trip with John X Safaris. Ty, Patric and Ozzy were great to hunt with. I look forward to my next hunt with John X Safaris.

~ Max Taylor '15 from

"So much more than what we expecting! Over the top service with a great team! Thanks again Carl and team!"

~ Kelly & Suzanne Edwards '14 from

"Some experiences impact you for the rest of your life. This father and son safari was definitely one of them. The bonding we had is irreplaceable. We each had our sights set on various species and the trophies we’re taking home have surpassed our wildest dreams. "Crums Man" you will not find a better PH/Tracker combo than Greg and Bless - They made everyday a new adventure with new friends. Thanks to everyone at John X Safaris for making this dream come true."
