You will see fauna and flora here in the Cameroon Rainforest unlike any other place in the world. Come experience approximately 690 species of birds, 250 species of reptiles and 409 species of mammals including Mandrill Monkeys and Silverback Gorillas!
All forest animals are hunted during the rainy season in April, May, June and July. The reason for hunting during the rainy season is the ability to spot fresh tracks. In the rain forest all animals seem to prefer to move around more when it is raining.
In Cameroon Bongo, Dwarf Forest Buffalo, Forest Sitatunga, Forest Elephant, Giant Forest Hog and Red River Hog are hunted with the world renowned Pygmy Trackers. When the Pygmies locate a track that would imply a trophy case animal, they stay on the track until the dogs begin to trail the scent. For Bongo hunting, once the dogs bay the animal you move in and your professional hunter judges the trophy and the final decision to shoot or pass on the animal is made. Due to the thick forest foliage most shots on Bongo are approximately 10 years or less. It’s a very exciting hunt and an unbelievable Africa experience.
Cameroon Rain Forest Safaris for Bongo, Elephant, Sitatunga, Dwarf Buffalo and Much More
Forest safaris are 16 days including your day of travel to camp and day of departure from camp, leaving 14 full days of hunting. All hunts are guided on a “1×1” basis (unless otherwise requested). Normally each camp will have 2 hunters unless otherwise requested.
All safaris begin and end in Douala, Cameroon. Private air charters are used to reach the rain forest camps. These charters are normally 1 or 2 hours in duration depending on the type of aircraft used. We strive to arrange our safari schedule in such a manner that allows our arriving and departing guests to split the cost of the air charters. Still, air charters in Cameroon are very expensive. Please inquire as to current approximate cost and aircraft options when booking your safari.
