There are many types of insurance that one can take out for a trip like this. From lost baggage to loss of trophies. In our opinion, most of which are not worth the money.However the one that we do consider very worthwhile is the medical and evacuation insurance offered by Global Rescue. There is a link in the page to their site. Please take a look.

Medical requirements

1) Please remember that Mozambique is a malaria area, so you must consult with your physician before your departure date to acquire prophylactics. You need to start your course of prophylactics one week before your departure date, so make arrangements in good time.
2) Vaccinations for Tetanus, Hepatitis A & B are advisable.
3) Yellow Fever – If you are traveling through Zambia, you MUST have a yellow fever card. Please consult with your physician or your closest travel clinic.

Dip and Pack.

We work closely with EMIAC World Wide, based in Johannesburg, South Africa. We will deliver your trophies to them and they will then be responsible for communication with you and your clearing agent @ port of entry, storage, clearance and freighting of your trophies to you via airfreight.

Hunting Rules

• No alcohol will be consumed at any time during a hunting day, this includes light beers at lunch. Alcohol may only be consumed once the hunting has been terminated for the day.
• All wounded animals must be paid for in full. An animal is deemed wounded when blood or other visual signs are found or when the PH and tracker both agree that the animal was wounded.
• Back up shots on wounded animals will be at the discretion of the PH. although he will try give the hunter all reasonable opportunity to finish off his own animal, he will shoot if he feels the animal will escape and suffer or be a danger to others.
• When driving with your rifle in the front of the vehicle the barrel must be pointed down to the floor at all times. The rifle must also be unloaded.
• At the start of each hunting day you may fill your magazine but may only chamber a round when your PH instructs you to do so.
