This exciting Forest Elephant hunt in Cameroon will take place close to Cameroon's south eastern border between the Central African Republic and the Congo. The only practical access to this area is by charter flight out of Douala. This outfitter's concessions hold the highest concentrations of Forest Elephants in all of Cameroon. This is the only rain forest in Africa where a true Forest Elephant hunt can be taken. Cameroon does have a CITIES quota for exporting elephants, but at the present time, US Fish and wildlife does not allow their importation into the US. This Forest Elephant hunt in Cameroon requires you to stalk extremely close to the elephants in order to determine ivory size. You may be within 10 yards of these magnificent animals. They are not known for large ivory, but the hunt is about as exciting as a big game hunt gets!
The Forest Camps
Your hunt will take place from a comfortable forest camp. Comfortable beds, in-suite bathrooms, electrical power and great food will keep you comfortable. With years of experience operating camps in these remote areas, you will be in good hands. Information about the different hunting areas is available via the following link:
Forest Elephant Information
Forest Elephant, also known as Pygmy Elephant, carry a yellowish, mostly straight ivory. The yellow hue of this ivory, sometimes refered to as rose ivory, is often stained from the native plant juices, giving the ivory a dark brown walnut shade.
Ivory from elephants hunted in Cameroon is not currently allowed to be imported into the US or the European Union at this time.
For US hunters, Discount African Hunts has partnered with the Wildlife Gallery to offer you an Ivory Replica Package so that you may display your elephants ivory.
