In the rain-forest the goal for most hunters is the beautiful bongo antelope with it’s fabulous orange and white striped coat. However forest elephants, sitatunga, forest buffalo, giant forest hogs and a wide range of exotic duikers can all be hunted here, species that have recently been drawing a lot of attention from international big game hunters.
In the rain forest Mayo Oldiri has 4 concessions covering an area of 600.000 ha. The concessions, Boumba, Lognia, Dja and Ndama are situated between 3 national parks, Boumba Bek, Lokomo and Dja, fairly close to the borders with the Central African Republic and the Congo. Even though it is, in principle, possible to drive here from the capital city Douala along gravel roads (2 days), the only practical way of reaching the hunting area is by chartering an aircraft. Our partner has a charter to the rain forest twice a month and it will therefore be possible to share the charter with other hunters and thereby save quite some costs.
The hunting methods here are somewhat different to those on the savannah. The most sought after game species in the rainforest is the extremely shy Bongo. After heavy rain showers the Bongo moves out into slightly more open terrain, often crossing a forest track that the local lumber companies have laid down in the area. It is also possible to find fresh tracks at the many different salt licks. Once you find a fresh, promising track, the pygmy trackers begin their amazing work: following the animals track through the dense, dense rainforest. The hunters and dogs follow the pygmies, and it is only when the dogs can see the bongo that they are set loose to corner the animal, until the hunter can come close enough to take his shot.
Forest elephant is hunted in the same way, but without the use of dogs. Other game, such as Sitatunga and Giant Forest Hog are hunted from openings in the rain forest, so-called “jungle savannahs”, and finally duikers are hunted after “calling them up”.
The hunting season in the rainforest is from mid March until the end of July.
