First Hunt Reports On Christian Weth Of Uganda Wildlife Safaris


Published: April - 2010

I have received subscriber hunt reports on the first safaris with Christian Weth of Uganda Wildlife Safaris. Continuing subscribers know The Hunting Report has been following Weth's efforts to open a number of hunting concessions in Uganda for six years now. He managed to lock up an enormous chunk of country within the last year or two and this past December hosted his first two paying clients, subscribers Roger Card and Walter Broich. In February, subscribers Bill and Susie Brewster and Jose Marti (from Spain) as well as Peter Larsen also hunted with Weth. The reports are mixed.

In the January issue, you'll recall that Weth's US agent, Ken Wilson, reported on Card and Broich's safaris, explaining that late rains and high grass too green to burn made hunting difficult but that they were willing to return. Both hunters have now confirmed that in a written report from Broich and a telephone conversation I had with Card. They were the first hunters in Aswa Lolim in over 30 years. The one million acre concession lies in the northeast corner of Uganda near the Nile River and bordering Murchinson Falls National Park. Broich says the grass was eight to 10 feet tall, making it nearly impossible to see the game. "I did not see buffalo and only saw one female kob," he reports. He managed to kill a Nile bushbuck and what he says is a Harvey's red duiker. Card took the same species.

They left the hunting area six days early, but plan on returning and recommend the experience with some caveats. Broich says he would not recommend hunting in Uganda any earlier than mid-January because of the rain and high grass. Card says he is going to try again in the month of April. Also they indicate the camp was rather rough. Broich gave it a fair rating. Card elaborates a bit more, describing the tents as........(continued)
