As some of you may know I took more North American hunters to Burkina Faso than everyone else combined and many of you on AR have hunted there with me! Unfortunately Burkina is now closed for hunting with the Jihadist problems! What the future holds is unclear. Outfitters in Benin next door are going ahead with hunting plans for 2020 (and I can set you up with a hunt there and the hunting there is also very good), but the serious problems in Burkina are 50 miles away, a different country but still very much in your neighbourhood, across a porous border! This leaves Cameroon as the only safe bet left to hunt Western Savannah buffalo, Western Roan and plains game unique to West Africa. And of course Lord Derby Eland as well.
So anyone who has any desire to hunt these species should seriously consider postponing their 20th cape buffalo hunt and shoot their first savannah buffalo before its a thing of the past! They are a neat animal and range from black to red and every shade in between. The hunt is the same as the Cape buff a tracking hunt, and I have found them to be just as tough! Cameroon also has a lot of roan. The trophy fees while higher than Burkina and Benin is still very affordable when compared to other countries in Africa. You can also shoot Hippo but I am not sure if they are importable in to the States, if anyone is interested please let me know.

Buffalo + 4 species from B&C €10,500 euros

* Trophy fees are government controlled and subject to change without advance notice. In Cameroon a big-game licence allows you to take 2 class A + 4 class B/C species, hence 2 licences are required for taking waterbuck and / or bush buck in addition to buff and roan.
We hunt from 22nd December to end of April. January and February are the cooler months.
Typical Itinerary is fly to Paris and then from there to Douala where you will be met, assisted with clearing of your rifles and taken to a hotel to spend the night.
Next day you will fly commercial to Ngaoundere or Garoua, where your PH will meet you and drive you 4 hours to camp
Your hunt will start the following day
On the day after your hunt ends you will return to Ngaoundere or Garoua and flyback to Douala in time to catch the night flight back to Paris and then to the States.
I will recommend a travel agent who will handle all your flights, visas and gun permits. Except for a couple of dates, we are pretty booked for 2020, so now mainly booking 2021.

Some of you have enquired if they can take a 2nd buffalo in place of a Roan and the answer is yes. So if buff hunting is your thing, this is as good as it gets!

Is the Grimm's Duiker the same as a West African Bush Duiker?

Yes Will it is. SCI differentiates the reed buck as being different between Cameroon and Burkina and Benin, but they are identical..I have shot both! But I will say that in Burkina there seems to be two types of horn configurations!

By the way there are only two period left for this hunt in 2020:
Depart USA on 2nd and return 15th February (very nice time to hunt in cameroon)
Depart USA on 22nd March and return April 5th. It will be hot but the hunting will be very good.
