This is your chance to hunt the newly opened Congo - Brazzaville for exotic plains game species, dwarf buffalo and duikers.  This hunt will take place in the Northern Congo and is accessed from the town of Ouesso.  This area has been logged in the past, so there is a wide network of roads to facilitate hunting.


You will fly to Brazzaville’s Maya-Maya airport from Paris, France or Johannesburg, South Africa.  There, you will be met by a representative that will assist you and transport you to a hotel where you will overnight ($150 US).  The next morning you will be picked up and transferred to the airport for a connecting flight to Ouesso in the northern Congo. (R/T $250 US) There is only one flight between Ouesso and Brazzaville per week.  These flights cannot be booked on-line and will be booked by a company representative on your behalf.  When a flight is not available due to unforeseen circumstances, transportation to Ouesso will be available.  You will be picked up by your PH at the airport in Ouesso.  You will then cross the river at Ouesso and be driven to camp (2 hour drive)


You are requested to apply for a Visa at your nearest Congo- Brazzaville Embassy.

You will be asked to provide the following:

  • Invitation letter supplied by CHS 2 months before arrival date
  • Flight tickets 
  • Brazzaville Hotel address
  • 2 color ID photo's

Note: Please contact Embassy for more detail and processing time

What we need:

  • Scanned copy of the hunter's passport for invitation letter
  • A color ID photo of hunter
  • International flight itinerary - Confirm inland flights with us beforehand
  • Information sheet filled out in case of allergies or emergencies


The day after arrival you will start hunting. Hunts are conducted from bay's sitting in elevator blinds, from the rivers in a Mokoro (boat), in the logging roads, spot and stalk or walk and calling in the forest.

Bongo may be hunted by searching the open areas and roads, as they have a habit of coming out into the openings to feed on the new growth along the roadway fringes. This is one of the few areas in Africa where bongo can be hunted by this method. The large amount of logging roads from previous logging operations allows for this relatively easy method of hunting bongo.  Sitatunga hunting will utilize a boat to access areas that the sitatunga frequent.

You will see gorillas and a wide variety of exotic wildlife while on this hunting safari in the Congo.


Bow Hunting is allowed in the Congo and importing your bow will be relatively easy.



Goliath tigerfish are available as a side excursion when you have completed your hunting.  The fishing is a 2 hour drive from camp and is done on the Sangha River.  Goliath Tigerfish are known to grow up to 150 pounds an feature interlocking teeth similar to a piranha.



If you desire to bring your own firearms, the following will be required in addition to meeting your country’s firearms export requirements:

  • Rifle license or details (make, serial number, caliber of each barrel in case of Blazers) with number of rounds of ammo you want to bring with you.
  • Copy of an ID Photo

We will apply for your import permit, which you will receive on arrival.

The following firearms are available in camp to rent: .416, .375 and a shotgun. 

Rifle Rental is available at $50 US per day

Trophy Shipments:

After the completion of your hunt your trophies will be dried and transported to Brazzaville. There they will get packed and exported by airfreight to the address you supplied us. This whole process will take between 10-18 months.


The hunting camp consists of brick and wood Chalets that feature air conditioning and are each fitted with an in-suite bathroom and shower.  Electricity and a satellite phone are available when necessary.

"I would Highly recommend my PH and Discount African Hunts. John got me a great deal with a top of the line outfitter. They both went out of their way to make sure my hunt and everything else about it was great."

"First, I wanted to tell you the buffalo hunt with the outfitter you booked me with was great! The PH took me to a farm where there was a good herd of buffalo and I shot a 40” old dagga boy. I could have taken another one a bit wider, 42”, with hard bosses but he did not have that old rough beat-up look I was after."
