Our concession in the pristine wilderness in the Northern Mozambique Niassa Province is approximately 270 000 hectares.
The concession area is situated North of Marrupa and South of Block C Niassa Reserve. The concession is flanked on the East by the Ruanbeze and on West by Luveco rivers.
The subtropical vegetation and climate with its moderate to high rainfall is home to diverse population of rare African species such as:
Rooseveldt sable, Lichtenstein hartebeest Niassa wildebeest and a complement of big buffalo, lion, leopard and elephant.
A Wild Lion is a lion that lives in an area with absolutely no human intervention. This means it is free-roaming, hunts its own food and regulates its own populations.
Syncerus caffer caffer, the Cape Buffalo, is the typical subspecies, and the largest one, found in Africa. Also known as Black Death, the Cape Buffalo can be extremely dangerous, and is said to have killed more big game hunters than any other animal in Africa..

The Leopard is Pound for Pound, the most dangerous animal in the world when wounded, drawing a deep respect from all who have hunted this magnificent creature. Elusive and dangerous are the flrst thoughts any hunter should have when leopard hunting.
They can see 7 times better in the dark than humans. Like most animals, the pupil of a leopard’s eye constricts or dilates according to the amount of light that enters the eyes. Because of their adapted retinas, leopards are exceptional nocturnal hunters.
Leopards run more than 60 km/h for short distances, leap more than 6 meters horizontally and 3 meters vertically.
Roosevelt Sable is slightly smaller, lighter in colour and with shorter horns than the common sable. Males vary from seal brown in the Shimba Hills to reddish black in the Selous and Kilombero. Females are a bright rufous. Named after explorer and hunter Kermit Roosevelt, son of former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt.
Livingstone Eland is subsequently transplanted into South Africa, and somewhat bigger, he can often be found right alongside his indigenous cousin the Cape eland. The Livingstone variety has large, massive and impressive horns. White body stripes are evident but may not be as well-defined on mature bulls.
Boehm’s or Grant’s Zebra have very wide and dark stripes on the rump. Their legs are stripped to the hooves.
Zebra has been called camouflage to confuse big predators, an identity signal to other zebras and a kind of wearable air conditioner.
Now most scientists agree that the function of a zebra’s stripes is to ward off biting flies that can carry deadly diseases.
Nyassaland wildebeest are from Mozambique (north of the Zambezi river) up to east-central Tanzania. They have a black face with long hair on the hump and tail and a white stripe above the nose.
Lichtenstein’s Hartebeests are large antelope with humped shoulders, sloping back and elongated head. Cows can weigh 180 Kg and adult bulls over 200 Kg. At the shoulder the height of both sexes’ measures 1.25m.
Their body colour is a light tawny, with a rufous saddle extending from the base of the tail to the shoulders. Rump, hind legs and under parts of tail are off white. Fronts of lower legs are black, as is the tip of the tail. A characteristic dark patch is visible on the flanks due to continuous rubbing of the face on the flanks. Dust sticking to the secretion rubs off onto the flanks from the preorbital glands situated on the face. Backward curving s-shaped horns are found on both sexes. The bulls’ horns are thicker at the base.
