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.

What People Are Saying
"Rusty, my PH, was excellent and loves to hunt. He worked very hard to fill my needs. He communicates well and has an excellent personality. Lauren and her staff were 'over the top' accommodating to guest needs. Food and presentation was great as was the field lunches. Both lodges were beautiful. It was good to experience both locations. All the PH's got along well and were well coordinated. I must also comment that the communication from Trish and Carl was immediately responsive at all times.
Thanks again John X Safaris. God Bless"
"In 2001 I went on a once in a lifetime trip with John X Safaris. In 2011 I completed my 6th trip with John X. Obviously I am a believer in the quality of the entire John X experience from the first class accommodations, to the outstanding food, exceptional service and even more importantly - to the quality hunting areas that produce the exceptional trophies I've come to expect. Trip number seven is being planned for 2012 - I simply can't get enough!"~ Brett Nelson '12 from USA
"We can’t express ourselves enough, the gratitude towards everyone. Carl, Juan, the staff - such warm hearted people. Not only to mention our hunts were more than we dreamed it to be. Many thanks to everyone, new friends and memories to last a life time."~ Dennis & Nan Roberg '13 from
"I had a great time!!!! Could not have been better. The staff were friendly and so helpful. Schalk was superb and put in endless effort to ensure our hunt with bow and rifle was a great success."~ Josh Wilde '12 from USA
"What an adventure for my 12 year old son and myself. Our first safari was incredible. Many thanks to Carl, his staff, and our professional hunter, Stix. They worked patiently with my son and put him into perfect situations. We did not imagine that we would have such great success.
Thank you for the wonderful trophies and unforgettable experience."
"John X did it again! I never would have guessed my 2nd safari with John X would be able to be better
than my first. Carl did everything he could to make each hunting experience world-class. I cannot thank Carl and the staff enough. I am bringing my son on his first safari next June. Hopefully time will fly by! Until we meet again …"
