Hunt for Buffalo, Roan and Antilope in Burkina Faso

For the trophy hunter who misses all the exciting West African species in his collection, Burkina Faso in an interesting destination with great hunting concessions, plenty of game and good game management

Highlights on the Tour

  • Several species and subspecies that are not found in southern and eastern Africa
  • Hunting on the former domain of French hunters
  • Very good hunting grounds and especially good trophies
  • Various fixed price packages with hunting of selected West African species

Since 2011 we have had quite a number of hunters in Burkina Faso and they all returned home happy with exciting hunting experiences from West Africa and very good trophies going to the taxidermist! On this hunt you can hunt several species - and subspecies - that cannot be found in southern or eastern Africa, which is the goal for most hunting safaris.

West Africa has for many years been the French hunters domain, but we have found a good partner who provides an excellent service. The hunting areas are very good and the results can so far speak for itself. As a hunter, you can choose between different fixed-price packages with hunting for selected West African species.

Hunting stories

 

Gene in Burkina Faso

I would like to thank you on behalf of both Mark and myself for the hunt last week. It probably was one of the most challenging in terms of weather and terrain. It was a lot different than what I have experienced on my usual hunts. I do appreciate all you did to make the hunt successful and problem free. Give my regards to Walli and offer him my thanks. I learned more in a week from you 2 than in many years on my own. The Buffalo and Roan were what I had always wanted to hunt and will finish my Game Room heads.

All the best - Gene

The 260,000 ha hunting districts of Singou and Ouamou lie in the eastern part of Burkina Faso - 350km from the capital city. These hunting districts border two National parks and there are no nearby settlements. It is truly a wild district, consisting of savannah, hills, rivers and bush. It provides the perfect habitat for the game animals that live here.

 

In addition to the species you can hunt here: western savannah buffalo, western roan, western hartebeest, western job, waterbuck (sing sing), harnessed bushbuck, Nigerian bohor reedbuck, oribi and warthog; you can also find lion, hippo, crocodile, elephant and baboons.

“Everybody in the group - 3 hunters and myself - all agreed that this was an intense experience. This tour was REAL AFRICA from start to finish.

Burkina Faso is one of the poorest countries in the World, but everybody we met were really positive, kind and friendly. There is very little crime, everybody lives rather primitively in huts built from reeds and mud, which they share with their domestic animals, and all the water they use  needs to be fetched from the well.

 

The capital city of Ouagadougou bustles with people, domestic animals, cars and above all - mopeds.

Villages only consist of small clusters of houses and a few fences for livestock, but nobody seems to suffer. Visiting hunters need to be prepared for the fact that everything is very simple - including their food and accommodation, but that the hunting is absolutely fantastic.

We arrived at Ouagadougou during the late afternoon. Weapons checks and customs clearances were easily completed with the help of a representative from the hunting outfitters. We then spent our first night on the outskirts of town, before carrying on to the hunting district the next day.

 

The camp was good, but again simple, and was a 35 minute drive from where we began hunting,  but every day this gave us the chance to experience village life as we drove to the hunting district.

The districts are really wild, and just perfect for hunting. You drive around looking for tracks, especially near waterholes and on the roads, and here we saw many fresh tracks, especially those of buffalo. We saw many individuals of most game species every day. The hunting for buffalo and roan was particularly good - but it is difficult and involves many hours of stalking.

All the hunters on the tour got all the the trophies they had wished for and booked:

3 buffalo
4 roan antelope
3 kob
 

On a 6 day hunt you can book a package that includes 2 -3 game animals + you can shoot extra game (following the trophy price list) if there is time. If you want to hunt buffalo or roan it is a good idea to hunt 1:1, which is slightly more expensive, but is money well spent! Hunting for oribi is also difficult, but on a 6 day hunt, it should be successful!

It is very hot, so you need to drink plenty of water, which can always be found in the car.

Best wishes
