Uganda is the “Pearl of Africa” according to Winston Churchill. It gives a rare opportunity to hunt the real Africa, which has not yet been totally changed by civilization, and to get some endemic species like the Jackson’s Hartebeest and the Uganda Kob. 75% of the trophy fees go directly to the local communities.
Hunting in Uganda is open all year round. Best period to hunt for Buffalo and Sitatunga is December through April.
Most of the international flights arrive at the airport of Ettebe city. From here, you can get to the capital of the country, Kampala, within a 45-minute drive. It takes a 4 to 10 hour drive to get to the hunting camps. You can also take a charter flight to Kitgum.
Mainly hunting in Uganda is spot-and-stalk. You will drive around the hunting area on a 4x4 vehicle and then start the stalk. Be ready for walking. This isn’t the easiest one of the African hunts, but surely a very rewarding one. The marshana hides are used to hunt for Sitatunga.
All hunting camps in Uganda have 24/7 electricity and satellite internet connection. The camps in Kafu blocks and Karamoja consist of classical en-suit safari tents. Mayanja and Aswa Lolim have thatched African chalets.
Kafu River valley is mainly covered with papyrus swamps and thick bush.
The Aswa Lolim region borders National park Murchison Falls and the Nile River. It has grassy hills, forests and swamps.
In the north of the country, we organize hunting in Karamoja, which totals 1.2 million hectares of hunting grounds.
