As many of you know I took a lot of clients to Burkina Faso and many past clients who hunted there still come up at the shows and say how it was one of the best hunts they had been on. While Burkina was a diamond in the rough, the experience was probably the same as a DIY hunt in wild africa, except you did have local PHs who knew what they were doing. I can remember some funny incidents but for the most part it was a great time in what was true DG country especially with lots of cheeky eles to contend with!

Unfortunately all hunting in Burkina has come to an end due to the terrorism problems. However next door in Benin the hunting has carried on and the experience is all the same. The country has also been stable except for a kidnapping incident a couple of years ago. I was reluctant to take clients to Benin because of this but have been monitoring the situation very closely and have also been assured by the outfitter that the hunting area and the entire Pendjari National Park is now being patrolled intensively by the army as well as anti poaching park patrols and is now very safe.

It is a local run operation with local PHs. One of the PHs is Ismail who some of you may remember from Burkina. He is now working out of this camp. There will also be an english speaking interpreter with you all the time.

To get there fly to Cotonou and overnight, drive to camp the next day. It is a 9 hour drive.

With the Covid situation all air-freight has gone up! What it will be later this year is anyone's guess. I do not expect it to be crazy, probably a few hundred dollars more. This is what I paid for our clients trophies coming this year out of cameroon.

I was surprised at how reasonable flights were to Benin when I checked recently under $1000 NY to Cotonou return.
