Northern Cameroon hosts some of the best Lord Derby Eland hunting in Africa. Renowned for its Lord Derby Eland numbers, herds of 30 or more Eland are normally spotted each day. Good visibility and roads offer our guests less strenuous hunting and very high success rates. our hunts are scheduled around the animal rutting season, December through Mid-March, offering our hunters the best opportunity to harvest a big black necked trophy bull Eland. Many other species are encountered while hunting Lord Derby Eland such as: West African Savannah Buffalo, Western Roan, Harnessed Bushbuck, Western Hartebeest, Sing-Sing Waterbuck, Western Kob, Nigerian Bohar Reedbuck, Red River Hog, Warthog, Oribi, Red Flanked Duiker, Western Bush Duiker, Olive Baboon, Elephant and Lion.
Our safari area is located north-east of the Faro River, encompassing approximately 200,000 acres. The terrain is made up of mountains and plains, with several rivers crossing the area. Reaching camp from Garoua takes less than 3 hours drive by 4×4 Toyota Land Cruisers. Meals are prepared fresh daily and special dietary requests can be met. Bottled water, soft drinks, beer and wine as well as daily laundry services are provided.
Each hunter is accompanied by one professional hunter, a team of trackers and porters. Spot and stalk and tracking are the preferred and practiced methods of hunting. Depending on commercial airline schedules arriving and departing Garoua, these safaris normally encompass 12 to 14 days; thus allowing 11 or 12 hunting days.
