Niassa Reserve Safari

Safari Discovery No. 7


Niassa Reserve Safari


At over 42000km² Niassa Reserve in far northern Mozambique is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. It is roughly twice the size of Kruger National Park, and is only just being discovered. A journey to the far north of Mozambique is no easy task, but if you are looking for adventure you might very well find it in the wild north.
