Mozambique: Nhenda - Free Roaming
This area covers 1 000 000 acres of wild free roaming land that borders Lake Cahorra Bassa for 60 miles. The area is based in Tete province, Mozambique. The habitat consists mostly of mountains with thick bush, cut through by many dry riverbeds. This is a true unspoilt wilderness, boasting unbelievable sunsets over the lake.
Nhenda is well known in the hunting community for the biggest crocodiles as well as extremely large leopards. The average size of crocodiles are 14 feet and some even stretched the tape to 17½ feet. Nhenda carries a high population of leopard and huge males are taken every season.
Crocodiles have sharp teeth and the
strongest bite than any animal in the world. The muscles that open crocodiles jaws however are not so powerful, reasonably strong people could hold a crocodile’s jaw closed with their bare hands. Like other reptiles, crocodiles are cold-blooded.
