Alain Lefol may have shot his biggest Bongo ever in May 2021 and that's really something because he has hunted it for the past 40 years.
This monster Bongo have been taken along the Vovodo river by a very lucky for his first big hunt in Africa. It measures 36 inch and 35 inch 1/2 with 12 inch 1/8 base.

We haven't had any problems with Americans, they just have to transit through Paris airport.

Stunning Bongo.
Testiment to the wilderness you are hunting to take an animal such as this after being in the same concession for 40 years.
Outstanding.
Congratulations to you and your team and of course the lucky hunter.

Alain, the forest animals fascinate me.

Do you also take Sitatunga and Giant hog in this same concession ?

Thanks in advance.

The number of sitatunga is low and the area where they are is very small.
We are going very well on giant forest hog the population is very healthy

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
