PACKING - 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

  • 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

"Great effort by all, you made a great safari experience! The extra work combined with truly exceptional access to hunting land was magnificent, but the real "icing on the cake" was the great fun, laughter and camaraderie with the team. I feel like we came as strangers and leave as friends, and all this for a beginner! Thanks for the patience ..."

~ Alex Good '12 from USA

Had the most unbelievable Vaal Rhebuck hunting adventure, Stix and the crew worked beyond what can be expected to find, stock and harvest this quality animal. I will always have this hunt in my memory as I do not think it can be easily equaled again, except by Stix, Carl and the crew from John X Safaris. I consider everyone at John X Safaris quality individuals and my friends. Hopefully I will be able to join them in the future again!

"The opportunity to shoot in tough conditions was a perfect learning experience. Carl gave us the shooting and the trophies we were after. The Karoo was just like hunting the west, long shots in the wind were mandatory. The coast was like a different world. Chasing big animals in small clearings and big valleys made awesome TV! Thanks again I cannot wait to be back!"

"My two sons and I had the best trip ever! My boys have thanked me numerous times for the trip of a life time. They are begging for round two. I also enjoyed the trip and loved seeing the joy on my boys’ faces! The staff, food, lodges and professional hunter were second to none. We felt like royalty! Thank you John X Safaris for the outstanding memories!"

"It was fantastic to return to the Dark Continent in 2014 by way of John X Safaris in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Carl, Etresia, Greg, Bless and the entire JXS staff created a fantastic adventure for me. From the Waterbuck that was so large that I named him the "Battleship Texas" to my last and favourite stalk of the hunt on a beautiful Eastern Cape Kudu, my hunting experience was "First Cabin" in every respect."

~ Craig Horan '14 from

"We were here 2 years ago and had so much fun we wanted to come back with friends. This time there were six of us. The hunting was great and the hospitality was even better than I remember. When you come on a John X Safari you are treated like royalty. Thanks again."
