Cameroon provides for a unique hunting experience. The primary trophies are Bongo, Lord Derby Eland and exotic species of duikers and antelopes, but Cameroon has many more to offer. The diversity of habitats makes Cameroon an Africa in miniature: rain forest, savannah and bush veld are all present here. If you are looking for an ultimate African adventure seek no more.
Rain Forest, south of Cameroon: the hunting season lasts from the beginning of April to the end of July. The recommended time is from the second part of April till the first part of June. Savannah, north of Cameroon: the hunting season runs from the middle of December until March. If your main trophy goal is Eland, then it is better to plan your hunt for January - first part of February.
Douala is the city of arrival. Charter or domestic flight is required to the hunting area, followed up by 3-7 hour car transfer to the camp.
The hunter in Cameroon has to be ready for a challenging hunt, with several hours of hiking daily. Physical tenancy and stamina will help greatly. 4x4 vehicles are used for transportation around the territory in the north. Once a trophy animal is located, the stalk starts.
A very simple accommodation, with minimal comfort level: wooden houses with thatched roofs. Each of them has a shower and toilet. Separate dining and lounge areas are organized.
Rain forest: camps Boumba North, Covaref and Lognia are among the most fruitful for Bongo and Dwarf Buffalo. Savannah: the hunting territories are located in between two national parks Buba Ngida and La Benu. This serves for the wide species variety and high numbers of game.

Cameroon has an amazingly broad variety of stunning landscapes: white and black sand beaches and monumental rain forest in the south and the great stretches of deserts and savannah in the north. It will offer a spectrum of activities after your hunting safari: those are diving and sun bathing, exploring many rich historical and eco-tourism sites, following the hiking trails in the mountains and many more.
Through almost all human existence, huntable land and huntable wildlife have preceded the hunter. They caused the hunter. But in the future, this must be reversed. It is the hunter who must cause huntable land and wildlife, and a world worth being young in. John Madison
