This is the best deal I have been able to find in Cameroon for a 100% sucess Lord Derby eland hunt with a good outfitter. Although Lord Derby eland hunts can be tough and involve lots of walking in hot temperatures, this area has a high concentration of eland and many of this outfitter's eland hunts end up with his client taking an eland early on in the hunt. For this reason and the attractive price, this is my recomendation for those of you wanting this magnificent spiral-horn trophy!
This exciting hunt for Lord Derby Eland will take place on two adjacent concessions totaling over 600,000 acres that have lots of big Lord Derby Eland bulls. The hunting camps are located about half-day drive from Ngaoundere or Garoua, depending on the airline's flight schedule. Access is via the international airport in Garoua or the domestic airport in Ngaoundere, where you will be met and transported to the hunting camp by vehicle. You will be staying in a top-quality camp and will enjoy private rooms, in-suite bathrooms, generators, freezers, fans and excellent cuisine and service!
This is not just a hunting safari, it is an adventure to wild Africa!
THE LORD DERBY ELAND HUNTING AREA
The hunting concession is located near the Benoue National Park and borders the Benoue River. Thanks to strict trophy management, the area has a very stable population of all hunted species.. The area is a comination of valleys and hills covered by savannah forest with large open grass areas. Before the hunting season starts, the tall grass is burned to increase visibility as well as to produce new grass shoots.
The outfitter's savanna concessions hold high concentrations of both Giant Eland and Roan Antelope. The hunting area has an excellent population of mature bull Giant eland ranging from 45" and upwards to am occasional trophy of up to 52".. An excellent population of trophy size Roan Antelope are also found here. Several trophy roan from 25" to over 30" are taken annually.
HUNTING THE LORD DERBY ELAND IN CAMEROON
The Lord Derby Eland and most of the other antelope species will be hunted on foot. The hunt will start each day by driving and looking for fresh eland tracks. Once tracks are found, the hunt comences on foot by following the spoor until catcing up to the eland. Eland continue to move and feed during the day, so hunting can be touigh in the high temperatures and long stalks. Care must be taken to not spook the eland, as they will begin running on one of their legendary stamina fueled miles-long runs.
During this hunt you may also take another animal from Group A which also includes Roan Antelope, NW Buffalo and Western Kob. Several additional sought after savanna species are also abundant in the area. These additional animals will be hunted in the traditional safari method, driving, spotting and then stalking.

"I would recommend this hunt although I would recommend John at Discount African Hunts even more. Areas can get hot and cold but John always knows the hot spots to send hunters."
"I looked long and far for a good deal on a lioness hunt. By far, Discount African Hunts had the best price. I had the hunt of a lifetime and took a beautiful lioness at close range with my bow. The Professional Hunter was first class, the lodge was first class and my whole experience was unbelievable. I will book with John Martins when I return to Africa to hunt leopard in Zimbabwe.
"Talk about dreams being handed to you!! From John's recommendation to stay at the Afton Guest House to the outfitter he booked me with, I was treated like royalty. Next year's hunt won't require research past his website. Thanks John."
