About Hunting in Cameroon
Spear Safaris has negotiated the partial Hunting rights to the Voko / Bantadje communal area in the far North of Cameroon, covering 160 000 acres for free ranging wild life.
This community based area is Home to Hunt-able numbers of the Giant Eland, Central Buffalo, Western Roan, Cob, Western Hartebeest, Red flanked duiker and Red river Hog’s to mention some.
There are better areas in Cameroon, but they are also a good $10 000 to $20 000 more expensive than this Block. In 2019 the area had 100% success on 6 Giant Eland hunts.
The season starts in December but the better times are generally from February onwards.
Camp is a fixed structure with Generator as Power source, giving us the use of A/C during the hotter months. Hunting is done by means of tracking or Spot and stalk mainly. Hunters do need to be prepared for a somewhat physical hunt as Eland are renowned for traveling and stalks can be up to 6 hours at time.
Hunting starts in the early morning and most days we return for Lunch and a siesta before the afternoon hunt.
