    Hi Christophe;
    On the packages listed... Are the trophy fees included or added on? Please further clarify.

    Also on the 6 day hunts you list 3 PG, does it matter which species?

    And on the 10 day you simply state PG, with no number. Is it open to as many as the hunter can get?

    Bob

    ActionBob,

    Trophy fees are not included on the packages.
    On the 6 days hunt you have 1 roan and you can choose 3 animals of the list below.
    On the 10 days package, you can get only 1 animal from each specie listed.
    Hope it is clear.

    Very cool, how hard is the logistics of getting there from the U.S. Also, is there a terrorism threat to Americans there? Prices seem very reasonable for such an unique wilderness safari. I imagine it doesn't get much wilder of Africa.

    Great offer Christophe! Do you have any lion in your areas and will you have any on quota?

    Hi GIZMO,

    Easy to get there, you go to Paris and get a plane to Cotonou (air France). 5 hours fly. You have to spend a night in a nice hotel (Novotel or better) and the next day you go to the hunting area.
    As I said, Benin is an easy country, no trouble, no terrorist there, only malaria !!!

    Hi Buff-Buster,

    Yes I have one lion left... They are for most of them without mane.
    We hunt them by tracking, spot and stalk, luck encounter. Baiting is not allowed. I am not able to call but I think one the tracker can do it.

    Thanks Christophe! No problem with the lack of a full mane. I like them to be big, old, scared up and nasty looking anyway...lol. Not looking for this year but a possibility in 2017. How far in advance would one need to book one of your lions? If one would want to do a Lion, Buffalo, Roan & PG, would it move out to a 18-14 day safari? Costs? You can send a PM if you prefer.

    Thanks Christophe;
    So if I add it up, a 10 day "full bag" hunt with buffalo and roan as well as the 10 PG you have listed would come to Euro 21950 or about $24,000 USD. Is that looking correct?

    What are the chances of bagging all these animals on a 10 day hunt?

    You also mention a fee for visa and insurance. And shipping and I assume dip and pack... You might have listed those on another thread but it would be nice to have all costs here together. So how much for those and about how much for a night at a hotel in Cotenou? Any thing else other than flight and tips?

    Is road transfer included in your package price? Is a 10 day hunt including 11nights in camp for 10 full hunting days? Do you charge any extra for travel days?

    How much is the lion trophy fee? You mention lion is mostly chance encounter... So I assume you do not really add days to hunt one, just hope to come across one? What are the chances of getting a lion?

    TIA (thanks in advance;)
