From its inception in 2001, Gajogo Safarilands, has set its sights on recapturing this heralded past, and we were lucky enough to find exactly the perfect place to do it:  Coutada 9 (Coutadas were set up by the Portuguese as large tracts of wild land to support wildlife conservation and hunting).  Uncivilized, unfenced, and by and large uncharted by today’s specifications, this 1.1 million acre hunting paradise was made infamous by the men who hunted this land and swapped their mighty big bore rifles, for something their weathered hands, aching bones, and uncertain steps, could no longer do.  Their razor-sharp minds would power the pens* that would forever cement their immortality.  Their memories would still put them in harm's way of elephant, buffalo, lion and other worthy opponents of more than a half century ago; in a place where none of these men would have ever left, albeit for age and war.  Their books take you there virtually, and Gajogo takes you there literally, to where their footsteps, and now yours, walk in yesterdays legendary safari concessions such as Safrique and Safarilandia. A place where wilderness, local culture, game, diverse terrain, and the raw elements of nature combine to make your safari adventure reminiscent of Africa’s Golden Age. A place where trophy animals have not been professionally hunted since 1974, where any hunting that did exist was for subsistence by locals, and where trophies animals were passed up in preference of more tender and flavorable younger game.  A place where competition for breeding rights, water, food and survival was battled out, and won by the biggest, meanest, and most cunning of the species; where only those victors were able to pass on their genes. That combination has produced modern day Coutada 9, a wildlife panacea where numbers are not exceedingly high, but the quality of the trophies are exceedingly magnificent, and the species diversity is superb.

Gajogo Safarilands:  "Unique in Mozambique"

Located within the Manica Province of Mozambique, Gajogo Safarilands is situated about 30 miles south of the Zambezi River, and about 50 miles east of Zimbabwe.  The closest city is Tete, which is about 90 air miles to the northwest, while the legendary Gorongosa National Park is about 80 miles to the southeast. Gajogo Safarilands is truly in the heart of Mozambique’s most infamous wildlife range.  The land is made up of numerous “stand alone” mountains ranging from 500 to 2500 feet above the undulating jess and savanna areas that are etched by numerous river flowages snaking their way into the mighty Zambezi.  Impregnated with rock outcroppings (called kopjies) Gajogo is loaded with as much glorious wildlife habitat as it is breathtaking beauty.                                       


As compared to Northern hemisphere conditions, weather at Gajogo Safarilands is warm.  Its summer months run from September through April, where daytime highs reach 85-105˚F; nights cool into the 60-70’s.   Winter runs from May to August where daytime highs run 75-90˚F, and the nights can get quite chilly in the 40-50’s. Rarely there might be a spot of frost at higher elevations.   The rainy season starts around the first of December and runs through the end of March.  The rainy season can be equated to Florida, where torrential rains are intermingled with beautiful blue skies.  It is not generally gray, overcast, or cool (however, getting to experiencing this climate is very cool).
