While we are on the subject of Cameroon, during the DSC Convention, we also met with Jean Pierre Bernon of Club Faune (www.fauna-safari-club.com
; +011-33-14-288-3132), who tells us that his partners are operating in a new forest area in the south.
"Our new area on the border with CAR, Zone 36 in Goboumou, can be reached easily by a seven-hour drive from Yaoundé. This helps hunters keep costs down, as no charter plane is needed. The area is strong for bongo and sitatunga, but particularly exceptional for hunting dwarf forest buffalo. Hunting is done from blinds or with native Baka trackers and dogs. We are offering 10-day hunts for buffalo during the 2017 season."
Bernon says that his hunters continue to have 100% success for giant eland and korrigum on the Niwa area, Club Faune's main savannah area in Cameroon, near Bouba Njida National Park, about six hours from Garoua.
"I can easily say that this area has the best korrigum population of any hunting zone. There is also a high density of giant eland. This large area is bushy savannah with three rivers flowing through it...."
