About This Hunt
HUNT BONGO IN THE CAMEROON RAIN FOREST
Hunting on a 1 x 1 basis. Each professional hunter has his own vehicle and a team of trackers and porters. All safaris are scheduled with a maximum of two hunters per camp at the same time.
On our 16-day safari, days 1 and 16 are transfer days. This means, there are 14 full days of hunting with some possible hunting on arrival and departure days.
The “Boumba” forest accounts for 40% of the total amount of licenses granted by the Cameroon Government to hunt Dwarf Buffalos and Forest Sitatungas.
Because of “The Boumba” Forest having been a completely isolated and remote area, where you would need a pirogue to go through, there is an abundant diversity of animals. Therefore, you can easily find all kinds of Duikers, Bates Pygmi Antelope, Bush Pig, and with a little bit of luck, even the Giant Forest Hog.
In 2002, Cameroon incorporated another forest area called “Lognia”, located just in the border of Cameroon with Congo and R.C.A. and protected by the Lobeke National Park. This is a classical bongo hunting area, the forest crossed by old forestal routes.
In 2007, they got another forest area called “Lokomo”. Therefore if you would like to enjoy a Forest Safari, just schedule a date for the Forest Season starting in mid-April and going on until end July. During these months a three-hour-daily-rain wets the ground allowing hunters to follow the trucks and prevent them from making noise by walking on a cap of dry leaves. Although it normally rains at night, we can not guarantee you will not be wet when arriving back at camp after the daily hunt.
(*) Anti-poaching and community-development program: in order to support an effective year-round anti-poaching campaign, as well as for advocating the value of wildlife to the villagers adjacent to and within our hunting blocks, a fee of 10% of the above trophy fees will be collected to fund these programs under our direct supervision. We have implemented these programs in all our hunting areas and have found that the results of direct funding for these necessary actions have been extremely beneficial in the overall quality of the hunting experience offered to our customers. These fees are paid at the conclusion of the safari, based on the final trophy fee amounts.
Note: Government fees might be modified (increased) without prior notice. The outfitter cannot be held responsible for any such modification.
