Who and What is Nhenda Safaris
Nhenda Safaris is an exclusive safari operator providing hunting
and fishing safaris and tours in the beauty of the African wilderness.
We hunt in Northern Mozambique on community based projects THUMA
TCHATO. Hunting area covers over two million acres on two (2) adjoining
concessions, we are on the North shore of Lake Cahorra Bassa, one
of Africa’s greatest man made dams on the Zambezi River.
Lake Cahorra Bassa offers some of the best Tiger fishing to be had
in Africa. Most of the area is covered by Miombo and Mopani woodland
although there are substantial open savannah areas and seasonal
wetlands as well as riverine forests along the many rivers and streams,
the landscape is scattered with inselbergs and ranges of hills.
Altitude 350m. Nhenda Safaris is a member of BHA (BOSVELD HUNTERS
AND GAME ASSOCIATION) and CHASA (NATIONAL CONFEDERATION OF HUNTERS
ASSOCIATIONS OF SOUTH AFRICA).
“Nhenda” is not only the “house of the lions”
but shares it with the most fears water predator the tiger fish!
The lodge is build on the banks of the Duangua River surrounded
by the best fishing waters on the dam, this means you don’t
need to travel more than 5km from the camp to get to the best fishing
waters filled with structures like trees, rocks, little islands,
seasonal rivers, grass, reads and drop-offs.mNhenda is also a bird
watching paradise .Fish eagles, the Pel’s Fishing-Owl…
