Trophy Fee for Giant Eland - 6,500 euros 

This is the best deal I have been able to find in Cameroon for a 100% successful 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 recommendation 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 a 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, en-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 an occasional trophy of up to 52". An excellent population of trophy-sized Roan Antelope is 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 commences on foot by following the spoor until catching up to the eland.  Eland continue to move and feed during the day, so hunting can be tough 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.

Testimonials

"In August 2014 I took a lioness hunt with Discount African Hunts in the Northwest Province of South Africa. The PH's worked hard to customize the hunt for me as I wanted a challenging stalk ending with taking the lioness at close range by an open sighted double rifle. They exceeded my expectations as 12 miles of tracking ended with me shooting the highly agitated lioness at a distance of 25 yards with a couple of rounds of 450 NE".

"I highly recommend a lioness hunt with Discount African Hunts."

"The hippo and croc hunt was good to great --  People make the hunt and from the booking agent to the outfitter YOU COULDN'T ask for a better hunt!  Very few hunting ads tell you what you will get and then deliver it with a smile and extras. Both ends are honest and great to deal with."

"John Martins tries his hardest to get you a great price and your animals with honest outfitters!"

"I spent weeks visiting websites for outfitters in Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, comparing pre-made packages and regular fees. In the end, for a 7-day, six animal hunt with my son as an observer/hunter, John Martins had the best price."
