    Thank you nsok!

    We have worked really hard for over the past 2 years to get this consession done, and it was approved through all the correct channels with all the relevant departments on board.

    I have never with all my dealings in Africa been so blown away by the absolute professionalism with wich the Congolese officials handled everything, and we are extremely excited to start bringing our clients to our part of the forest.

    Beautifull place too, virgin territory for hunting, so should be a real treat for anyone wanting to join us. Would be an excellent opportunity to see some Gorillas too, we saw one crossing a road while inspecting the area. Just a magnificent experience.

    Marion, maybe you should it it a try?

    I will ask our first hunters in May to post a reply to this message to give a review of the experience. Unfortunately that is two months on, so I wont be able to give you a review before that - other than my own obviously.

    Agents and other outfitters with clients are also welcome to contact us.

    Hi guys, just wanted to let you know that we have taken our first clients to hunt the area and we are thrilled with the experiences we had. We saw gorillas and chimpanzees on a daily basis, and the animals are plentiful in the area. More info and pics to come.

    Thanks for the update Gert, nice to hear that all is going well and what an amazing experience it must be to encounter Gorillas and Chimpanzees. Looking forward to having you share some pictures with all of us. Good luck with everything.

    A few hunting pictures from Congo posted by Saaiman Safaris in the photo gallery...


    Forest Buffalo taken by Jim Shockey in June 2012. This big guy made them work very hard for it by running into the middle of the Bai (clearing in the forest with a pool of water, but mostly mud, in the middle of it) before falling. Congratulations Jim!


    Bongo bull taken by Jim Shockey in June 2012. This was hunted witout the use of dogs, and was chosen after seeing a couple of other viable Bongos before that. Look out for Jim's show closer to the end of the year where he will show footage of this hunt.


    Beautiful Red River Hog taken by Rassie Erasmus in June 2012.


    Old Bongo bull taken by Rassie Erasmus in June 2012. No dogs were used.
