The concessions three distinct ecosystems surrounding the delta provide habitat for a current quota of 26 species.
The sand forests boasts with 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. During the drier months the flood plain plays host to hundreds of Waterbuck, Warthog, and Common Reedbuck, while the swamps are home to Elephant, Hippo, Crocodile, and some of Africa's largest herds of Cape Buffalo. View the entire game species list for Mozambique below.
The months of June and July provide the best opportunities on Crocodile and Hippo, while the latter months have proven largely more successful for Buffalo and Plains Game once the early season bush fires have run their course. After the first rains the world comes alive with pans, savannah, floodplain, and swamps, bursting with growth attracting vast quantities of wildlife.
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, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service do 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.
