Some incredible footages of Bongo in Central Africa... Enjoy!
Just the sound track takes me back to sitting in the blind.
Great footage. Thanks
Brickburn, yes, the sounds and smells make the hunt.
Poor buggers are just tormented by insects. Great footage Christophe!
I think this us an amazing animal. Can someone help me understand where you go to hunt this beast? Are there any in South Africa?
CAR and the Congo I believe, at least as far as the biggest places to hunt, although I'm sure there are other countries too. None in SA that I'm aware of.
Look for hunts in the Cameroon Area seen some offers from there. trophy fee about 3500 euro which isn't bad it the 45000 euro in daily fees that gets you.
This map will give you a general idea of where they may be found.
Hunting currently CAR, Cameroon are your best bets to chase a Bongo.
Not really in RSA unless they are in a private collection. I have not heard of any being hunted in RSA.
Thank you Brickburn! I have to add this to my list.
I love those Spiral Horns.
Not an easy hunt nor an easy access. Part of the charm, but not for the faint of heart for sure.
Fantastic - thanks so much for sharing with us.
Christope, beautiful movie. I would like to be there.
Movie already deleted...AGH...Bongo would be an amazing adventure. One lottery ticket away.
CAR has seen some heavy conflict and Many Outfitters departed and stopped operations.
Most shifted to Cameroon. Some opportunity in Congo. (not DRC)
As far as I know Alain Lefol is still operating in CAR.
Here is an email that I received from Alain on 11/9/16.

Where is their camp?
