About this hunt

Since 1995 hunting has been selective and very conservative, which resulted in a dense game population and record-able trophies. The trophy lengths of the collected Derby elands all exceed 461/2 inches or 118 cm (Rowland Ward: spiral measurement) with a record, shot in 1997, of 531/4 inches or 137 cm. (Cameroon n° 1 (Rowland Ward ed. 2002)). The length of the lions varies from 1121/2 to 1196/8 inches (285 to 303 cm). The trophies of the western roans are between 24 and 299/8 inches (61 and 76 cm) and those of western Bushbuck 99/8 and 15 inches (25 and 38 cm). This safari is 7 days long and 4 different species from group II. and III. per hunter can be hunted. Group II.: Western hartebeest, Waterbuck, Bohor reedbuck, Western kob, Red river hog, Warthog Group III.: Western bush duiker, Red Flanked duiker, Oribi, Baboon One single animal per species and only males can be shot.

Cameroon , Faro River area

8.0 of 10

We tracked savannah buffalo , almost everyday , unique eco-system ,, very beautiful area especially along the Faro River , very nice camp along river , good food , good service , hard working staff , intense tracking abilties , dedicated anti-poaching Team , enjoyed fishing in evenings & seeing all types birds & animals .

Although we tracked bufs almost everyday ,, we couldn’t get up on them bc of worm mounds on ground sounds like your walking on fresh snow & alot of dried leaves prevented us from making final approach , without bufs hearing us & them taking off w/out chance to look for a bull . Looks like there’s a good population of bufs in this area . Also theres some very wicked thick riverine bush , thats hard to approach animals in . We gave it hell trying ,, thats why they call it hunting !!!

Most authentic safari experience

10.0 of 10

it was definitely the best and most authentic safari experience i ever had. You are very far from those southern shooting farms. Thanks to Koen, the manager, I lived a pure dive in the central african atmosphere. As a University teacher, he is an expert and he offers you a thrilling experience with close contact with the game. I recommend it to any real hunter.
