Mozambique is endowed with rich and extensive natural resources. The country's economy is based largely on agriculture and mining but the country's tourism sector is growing rapidly after many years of civil war. South Africa is Mozambique's main trading partner and source of foreign direct investment. This country was a Portuguese colony that got independence in 1975. Mozambique is nowadays considered one of the most “stable” countries in Africa and continues to attract large influential international companies to its shores.
Mozambique is one of the few countries, where people that come for a safari tend to come back year after year because of its unspoiled wilderness. The term “safari” is relatively new for this country and for that it can be considered an Oasis for Big Game Safaris or even for the many plains game species found in this place. This is one of the cheaper destinations for quality big game hunting along with Zimbabwe offering some of the best value for money today. Also with the imminent closure of elephant hunting in Botswana makes Mozambique the ideal choice for the serious ivory hunter with bulls in the 100 pound plus range taken every year.
