In the next 12 to 18 months, we hope to be able to bring you a chance to revisit an old hunting ground, Angola. Ravaged by over 30 years of civil war, Angola today boasts one of the fastest growing economies in the world. 12,000 kms sq. are in the cards as an exclusive hunting area, offering everything from lion, buffalo, leopard, crocodile, hippo, sable, kudu, lechwe to sitatunga and possibly elephant. Hunters who have visited Caprivi East in Namibia will have seen the great numbers of elephant that migrate between Angola and Botswana. Permits must still be sourced from CITES.
The area's remoteness has to some extent protected the game from the scars of the war, and we hope will be a stepping stone to a bright new future for conservation and wildlife in Angola. Initially, we intend to host some exploratory first hunts to iron out logistical problems and the like. Anyone with a pioneering spirit and patience for unexpected delays should put their names forward to us for consideration in 2008.
