Hunting in Mozambique


Mozambique is a dream safari destination for the adventure seeking Big Game Hunter. Miles of unspoiled wilderness offer a true Wild Africa hunting experience. With over 20 years of first-hand hunting experience and guiding over big parts of Mozambique, Russell Lovemore will personally put your Mozambique safari together and share his unsurpassed knowledge with you.

“My fascination with Mozambique started with a fishing trip way back in 1994, followed in 1996 by my first hunting trip.

I have been taking clients hunting on many different areas in Mozambique since this time and have hunted on some really great places, mostly on the Zambeze Delta concessions. In 2014 I was fortunate enough to acquire Chawalo hunting area and we have recently started to refer to it as “Chawalo Wilderness”.

“Safari Trails Mozambique” is our South African registered company that books and conducts hunting and fishing safaris in various areas in Mozambique. Having hunted in many areas in Mozambique and through good relationships built I am in the fortunate possession to take our clients to the very best areas for the animals they are looking for.

We have hunting areas in Niassa, Zambeze Delta and Cahora Bassa. So we are not bound to one area and I can take you to where I believe you will have the best chance to take that trophy of a lifetime, and have the experience of a lifetime too.

To me safari is much, much more than just killing an animal. We need to enjoy everything about the experience. From the birth of the idea over a beer with friends or family right up to the time your valued trophies are hung up to enjoy forever. Sunrises, sunsets, sounds, smells and flavors of Africa all form part of your experiences and your memories. Treasure them!

It’s my belief that the trophies you work the hardest for are the ones that you treasure the most. This is true in all things in life, not only hunting. So with that, we believe that if you need to make up a story about your safari, then we have failed you.

Our motto is “For a Lifetime…” and this can mean a lifetime of memories, a lifetime of fun, a lifetime of experiences, a lifetime dream fulfilled, you fill in the blanks.

I look forward to sharing our campfires with you.”
