Dande North Safari Area (DSA)

Dande North consists of Ward 1, Dande Safari Area (DSA), Ward 2 and Ward 11. When you hunt with cms these areas are hunted as one area giving you over 500 000 acres in the zambezi valley to hunt in!. It is all good classical tracking hunts- the way it has been for generations and the way that it should stay!

 

WARD 1

Ward 1 is a communial area in the Northern part of the Dande concession. We have one tented camp called Matombo Camp with the most beautiful views of the Zambezi River. Ward 1 has about 15 km of river frontage with croc and hippo hunting and fanatstic tiger fishing. The hunting in ward 1 is excellent especially for elephant bulls that come in early season for the crops and in July when the Masua berries are out. There are lots of buffalo and inparticular old dugga boys in this area also!

 

MATOMBO



In Ward 1 we have one tented camp called Matombo Camp with the most beautiful views of the Zambezi River. Ward 1 has about 15 km of river frontage with croc and hippo hunting and fanatstic tiger fishing.

There are lots of buffalo and inparticular old dugga boys in this area also!

The centeral part is the Dande Safari Area (DSA). This is a National Parks area meaning that there are no people living in this truly beautiful part of the Zambezi Valley It is dotted with numerous springs and valleys and has high concentrations of all game and inparticular lion and leopard.

 

DANDE SAFARI AREA (DSA)

In the DSA we have 2 camps, Pedza Pasi & Mururu camp. Pedza Pasi is situated in the East of the safari area and is our permanent camp and can cater for bigger groups. Is our main camp, just 2.5 Kilometers from Zimbabwe’s unmarked Eastern border with Mozambique. The camp has very comfortable accommodation for up to six guests, and is the preferred camp for early season trophy elephant bull hunts. There is a resident “camp herd” of buffalo and some dagga boys which graze on the lawn almost every night as well as the local leopard, hyena and pride of lion just to make sure no one wanders around after lights out! Power is supplied by a 220 – 240V generator and water is from a deep borehole.

 

PEDZA PASI


Our second DSA camp is Mururu camp. It is also chalet styles/ en suite loos and showers. While it is a smaller camp then Pedza is still very comfortable and hearing lions and leopards most evenings is the norm! Located a one hour drive due west of Pedza Pasi, Mururu is a smaller more discreet camp also sleeping six comfortably. It is situated on the banks of a seasonal river under deep, deep shade provided by magnificent grove of Natal Mahoganies along the Manyemu river. The big 4 are all common night time visitors, particularly lion and leopard. It is unusual not to have one of the two big cats in camp every night. Power is supplied by a silenced 220 – 240V generator and water from the river. Drinking water is bottled.

 

MURURU



WARD 2 & WARD 11

Ward 2 and ward 11 are in the south bordering the DSA and we have one beautiful camp on the Mukanga River not surprisingly called Mukanga camp. It is chalet styles/ en suite loos and showers and caters for up to 3 hunters. Ward 2 and 11 have a numder of villagers within the area however as with ward 1 there are huge unsettled areas that have incredible concentrations of buffalo. This area iis very rich in all wildlife as it has several big rivers running through it including the Angwa , Mukanga , Yirira and Manyemu rivers . As a result with the flood plains on these river systems it is not surpising that there is such good buff and plains game to be found!
