Zimbabwe – Dande North
AREA & CAMPS
Dande North concession comprises of Ward 1 and Ward 2 of the Dande. These two wards are the prime hunting wards in the Dande and our two camps are exclusive to our operation – namely Mukanga camp on the Mukanga River and Matombo camp which is on the Zambezi River.
MUKANGA CAMP (Luxury chalets)
These chalets are luxury, thatched chalets with bathroom-en –suite with all the modern amenities. The décor and furniture/fittings are all new. The camp sleeps 8 guests comfortably and has a separate dining/bar and campfire area. The camp has generated power. Water is clean and safe and pumped from our own deep borehole at the camp. For added safety the water passes through a purification system which is also connected to an ice machine bottling unit.
MATOMBO CAMP (Tented camp)
This is a tented camp on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River and situated at the Masau river mouth. Due to the flooding of the Zambezi over the last two years we have built this new tented camp overlooking the Zambezi River. The camp has generated power. Breath-taking views. This comprises of three tents with bathroom on suite along with a dining area and campfire area.

Firearms and Ammunition
Temporary firearms and Ammunition permits are issued on arrival by the Zimbabwe Customs section at the airport. Whilst gun selection is a personal choice, automatics are not catered for. Therefore we advise a 30 caliber bolt action scoped rifle which would be suitable for antelope and leopard. Premium grade bullets such as Barnes North Fork or Swift are suggested. For dangerous game the minimum caliber is 9.3 or larger. Premium grade bullets such as Barnes, Swift trophy bonded must be used. For thick skinned dangerous game such as Buffalo and Elephant solid bullets are recommended.
Scope and mounts are important and must be of good quality. 60 rounds per caliber is suggested divided up between premium, expanding, and solid bullets. Rifle choice for cats should have a premium scope with good light gathering an illuminated retical really helps in low light conditions. We do have firearms for hire if the need arises.
