I don't know. I thought BF and Benin were getting off the path, both toast at least for now. I really shouldn't complain. My first two trips were to Tanzania and the Okavango in Botswana, two of the most desired places to hunt. Both were fantastic. Jaded.....spoiled, and an old whiner, that's me...:rolleyes:

HBD Sesto!...................Here's hoping you still have a few hunts in wild places in the near future. But it seems that civil unrest is reducing our potential destinations in Africa. And the "least known" place may actually have the least to offer. .......FWB

Well if you consider bird hunting, you can hunt Morocco, Senegal and Kenya. I am sure there are others as well. So still something to hunt.

Morocco has wild boar hunting for the Barbary Wild Boar. Any info on who offers hunts in Senegal and Kenya?

Mauritania used to be a good destination for hunting warthogs, unfortunately there have been some security issues lately.

Least known or maybe least considered or possibly overlooked?? Hmm good question and does bring up some interesting daydreaming as we can't go anywhere right now. Already been suggested, but Uganda in the shadow of Mt Elgon in Karamoja region keeps haunting because of the Bell connection.

When did that happen? Jean-Luc Damy, the owner, had just upgraded the camp a couple of years ago.

Are they still hunting Congo?

It is my understanding that a government minister thought he could make more money by giving the concession to his son. I don't believe the son has any contacts with international hunters. He just thinks they will show up.

Mauritius is a fairly obscure location where you can hunt rusa deer and boar. Possibly other things.


Bird hunting in Kenya has been mentioned. I believe you could hunt birds up until 3-5 years ago and it was stopped at that time. If I am wrong on this feel free to correct me.

@Wheels you are correct! It was suspended 5 years ago but some sites still list it. Shame!

I apologize for the incorrect statement.

Cameroon looks interesting, Mayo Oldiri runs several camps there, both savanna and forest.

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
