    Hey guys,
    So 100% daydreaming here - won’t happen until the house is paid off in a decade or so and who knows what the world will be like then.. just gunna post it because I live in fantasy 90% of the time lol.

    K! Forest buffalo? Forest elephant? Where? Who? Price lists? Who’s done it? Any hunt reports I can read?

    Cheers for endulging me,
    Troy.

    Do a search on AH member Christophe Morio.

    Christophe or Francois Guillet, I would say 100% no chance that west Africa will be a viable destination in ten years. CAR, Burkina Faso, Benin and most likely Cameroon are most likely made unsafe in recent years. You can always hope and dream but I would be booking in 2020 while you can still find someone to take you there.

    CAR is gone. Burkina Faso is gone. Only Benin and Cameroon are hunted now. I leave later his month for Cameroon and will post a report. If the US and Europe don’t help Africa stop ISIS West Africa will not be available to hunt in 10 years.

    Good luck Phillip and be safe, I have heard Jean Luc and Christophe have suspended operations in Benin, may be rumor but been told by a few. I am keeping my fingers crossed and praying for West Africa, I should have done a LDE hunt several years back. They are hunting in the Congo( Jean Luc and Christophe) and Francois posted something about a Forest Buff on FB.

    Who are you hunting with @Philip Glass ?
