Hunting Overview

Hunting with Safari Trails Mozambique (STM) - Chawalo Safari Area

Have you ever dreamt of hunting the true wilderness of Africa? A place that is reminiscent of a bygone era? Where big game have the right of way and where wildlife roam free. Where the incredible elephant, hippo, crocodile, lion and buffalo still reign and the local human population is largely unaffected by the pressures of the modern world.

Nestled between the Luangwa River and Lake Cahora Bassa, lies “Chawalo Lodge”. Sheltered by an ancient Baobab tree, on the northern bank of the Zambezi, the lodge affords a breathtaking view towards the west, across the river where elephants, hippo and fish eagles abound. Magnificent sunsets over the river are the order of the day!

If you are looking for the hunt of a lifetime, and your wish is to hunt dangerous and plains game alike in their natural environment, then Safari Trails Mozambique, Chawalo Safari Area, is the destination of choice. Here you can pursue buffalo, elephant, hippo, crocodile, lion, leopard, kudu, chobe bushbuck, sharps grysbok, impala, duiker, reedbuck, hyena, warthog, baboon and bushpig – to name but a few. 

In this remote part of Mozambique, STM offers hunting excursions from May – November, however some areas are too wet to hunt before June or July. After a full day`s hunting whilst taking in the breathtaking landscape and following hippo and crocodile through the reed islands, lagoons and backwaters, you will welcome the comforts of Chawalo Lodge. The campfire will be burning, with plentiful snacks and ice cold drinks on offer.

At night, the air is filled with laughter and stories about the day`s events, whilst listening to lions roaring and hyena`s laughing in the distance. The camp cooks will amaze you with exceptional cuisine, created with fresh ingredients from the Chawalo garden or sourced from local villages. The camp waiters will see to your every need.

We have a good working relationship with a number of other outfitters in other areas within Mozambique, including the Zambezi Delta area. We can therefore offer the full spectrum of animals available in Mozambique. Contact us and we will tailor make your safari to suit your needs.

Advance booking is strongly advised to avoid disappointment.

Mozambique is a malaria area and prophylactics must be taken. Please speak with your physician in this regard. You will need to start your prophylactics a week before your date of departure.
