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
"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
"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."
"Our 2014 reunion tour was much more than I dreamed of. The John X team members all went way above their positions to make me feel like family. From the quality of trophies harvested, the fantastic meals, and great accommodations to the camaraderie in the evenings, everything was perfect. A very special thank you to my PH, Stix, his patience and encouragement in helping me harvest extremely nice mature trophies will never be forgotten."~ Dave Moser '14 from
"On my third trip to S.Africa I once again hunted with my great PH Juan MacDonald. A friend once told me: "You can take my wife, but never take my PH or my toothbrush." That says a little bit what a good PH means. This year’s trophies were Zebra, Blesbuck, Mountain Reedbuck and I also got my second of the tiny ten, a beautiful Steenbuck. I really want to thank all of the wonderful staff who took care of us in the camps."~ Thomas Nyden '13 from
Thank you to Carl and the entire staff at John X Safaris. The accommodations and overall experience in the camps were exceptional. A special thanks to my friend and PH Rusty. The trophy quality and fun we had hunting together in the coastal areas and the Karoo was second to none.
Thanks for a truly unforgettable safari. See you in the future.
"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."~ Larry & Rita Heim '13 from
