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. And additionally we also have negotiated Hunting rights on area 27 on the eastern side of the Savannah region.
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.Area 27 is a government controlled concession, with the same species and more.
There are better areas in Cameroon, but they are also a good $10 000 to $20 000 more expensive than these Blocks. Until now we’ve enjoyed 100% success on 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.
