"Just before the hunt, a Spanish outfitter friend told me that I was making a big mistake. He believed that no such place exists. And this man has been in northern Cameroon plenty of times.

Immediately, just a few kilometers from the camp, we bumped into a big herd of about 50 Lord Derby eland. Interestingly, the animals ran about 100 meters then stopped and started feeding, not paying much attention to our car.
