Due to the frequency of human-lion encounters, the Ministry of Fish and Wildlife, Inhambane Branch, Mozambique is advising hikers, hunters, fishermen and any motocyclist that use the out-doors in a recreational or work related function to take extra precausions while in the bush.

We advice the outdoorsman to wear little noisy bells on clothing so as to give advanced warning to any lions that might be close by so they will not be taken by surprise.

We also advice anyone using the out-doors to carry "Pepper Spray" with him or her in case of an encounter with a lion.

Outdoorsmen should also be on the watch for fresh lion activity, and be able to tell the difference between lion cub shit and big lion shit. Lion cub shit is smaller and contains lots of berries and dassie fur. Big lion shit has bells in it and smells like pepper.

Enjoy your stay in Mozambique
