SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: This was the third hunt I did with Ngong Safaris and PH Borge Ladefoged which owns the company. We had a successful hunt, I shot a very nice forest elephant, but things started to go wrong when our charter flight never arrived when the safari was finished. We had to drive with two other clients all the way from Lokomo to Doula a two day drive under very dangerous conditions due to the conditions of the roads and careless driving by truckers. The three clients lost all our bookings as we never made on time to take our original schedule flights. Before departing we were told that the out charter never arrived because Borge owed money to the charter company, he never admitted. But we all had to pay extra money to rebook our flights. The worst part of this hunt is that to this date I have not received my elephant tusks, I have tried through many channels to get my tusks but havenĀ“t been able to do so. The PH, and owner of Ngong Safaris has promised to deliver the tusks arguing that the government changed the personnel in the game department but that he has the tusks. Other hunters that have hunted in Cameroun with other companies have gotten their trophies back in the same year they hunted with no problems. Two other Mexican hunters that have allow me to give their names and which hunted with Borge Ladefoged the same year have not receive their trophies either, Miguel Saldivar and Javier Vasquez. I understand that also US hunters that hunted with Ngong Safaris have not received their trophies either. Borge Ladefoged was in the SCI Convention this year selling safaris. I urge these hunters to be very careful as it seems to me that Borge is unable or is without the resources necessary to deliver what he promises. I do not believe that an outfitter who does not ship trophies to his clients should be allowed in the SCI Convention. I think Mr. Borge Ladefoged needs to be banned from SCI before he makes more damages.
Highlights of Hunt:
Equipment Recommendations:
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? no
Why? The company will not deliver the trophies and I must assume is very deep problems.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This PH should be banned from attending SCI until he delivers to all his customers all the trophies he owes which I assume might be many.

E-mail from Henrik Prebensen to Ramon Llano, January 7, 2014:

Hello Ramon,

I spoke to Mr. Ladefoged while he was in Denmark during New Year.

It looks like the trophies will be send in 2 lots, and the first lot will be send here in January as Cameroun wildlife Authority has promised to issue the export documents for the fist lot as first thing when then re-open after the Holidays.

Mr. Ladefoged will send me a list so I can see the names of the clients in lot one and lot two.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Bongo Hunting in Cameroon with Ngong Safaris
April 2011

I recently returned from hunting bongo and sitatunga in the rain forest of Cameroon with Ngong Safaris, with outfitter Borge Ladefoged of Denmark. Borge came highly recommended, and he has had a hunting concession in Cameroon for over 20 years. I personally met him in January 2011 at the Safari Club Convention in Reno, referred by a very experienced hunting friend. During my hunt, I was successful in taking a quality bongo, sitatunga and a couple of blue duikers.

Borge runs a very well organized camp and staff. All employees, including the pygmy staff, are well trained and accommodating:  from the cooks, waiters, drivers, trackers and certainly his professional hunters.

I had the good fortune of being guided by his daughter, a focused 25 year old Danish blond, who knows how to hunt. To guide in Cameroon, you have to go through two years of training, which she completed last year. She has assisted many bongo hunts before, but my hunt was her first as lead guide/professional hunter. Our hunt was a three hour exhaustive pursuit, in the dense, scrappy rain forest. Charlotte directed our five pygmy trackers with the true focus of the professional she has been trained. The hunt was not easy. The bongo doubled back twice, and once we jumped him, he took off.  Yet we caught up with him again, after another 40 minute chase. He even went into the river (and we followed), downstream first, then later, back up the stream.

The bongo hunt was one of the most exhilarating hunts I have ever experienced. Later, on the way home, I had the opportunity to take a forest sitatunga on the same day, which was very satisfying. Charlotte also guided me to successfully taking a couple blue duikers. In summary, I had a very positive hunting experience with Ngong Safaris.

Airline Comments: Air France provided good service to Douala. National Airways of Cameroon provides service between Douala and Garoua. NACCAM isn't much, it is difficult to find its departure gates. I had two hours delay going and some things were stolen from unlocked side pouches on my luggage. The return flight was 5 or 6 hours late and my luggage was lost between Garoua and Douala. It was time consuming and very costly to finally get it to the US a week later.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Lord Derby Eland Under the fog of the Serengeti Dust The planning for my hunt for a majestic Lord Derby or giant eland began in Borge Ladefoged's bongo camp in Cameroon in 2001. I was sharing the camp with Shawn Merriman of Colorado, and we both expressed an interest in hunting the Lord Derby eland. Borge talked about these largest of Africa's antelope with great enthusiasm saying they could be the toughest of all antelope to hunt. Hunting them can be from modestly physically demanding to extremely demanding (as mine turned out to be), he said. Shawn returned to Cameroon in 2003, and took his eland with a muzzleloader. I left for my hunt the day after the January 2004 SCI Convention ended, traveling Air France from Los Angeles to Paris, where I spent the night. The next day there was a two and half hour delay because of a snowstorm in Paris and the plane had to be de-iced. I traveled on to Douala, on the west coast of Africa between Nigeria and Guinea, and spent the night there before flying on to Garoua in the far north of Cameroon where Borge met me. From there, we drove about an hour and half into the savanna to our camp, passing the small village of Ngong, which is also the name of the hunting concession. Borge, the owner and professional hunter of Ngong Safaris, was my PH for the 11 and half days of my hunt. He lives in Denmark with his wife and two daughters, but has hunting concessions in both the north and south of Cameroon. His south camp is in the rain forest where he hunts bongo, sitatunga, forest buffalo and other forest species. The north camp where this safari took place has a completely different climate and terrain than the rain forest where I hunted on my previous trip.

The concession was teaming with good numbers of wild and free Lord Derby eland, western roan, western hartebeest, oribi, western bush duiker, Nigerian bohor reedbuck and warthogs. There was also harnessed bushbuck, but I only saw females on this trip. The rams eluded me probably because we spent most of the first nine days hunting eland. On the third day of the hunt we spotted a small herd of eland in the tall grass. Two trophy bulls were moving from our left to right. My shot was from only about 100 yards away, and they were broadside, but I could only see horns and a small portion of the head of one of the bulls. I thought they would move into an opening but they turned and disappeared instead. I was disappointed, but on the other hand pumped up, if that makes sense. I had encountered my first specimens of these majestic animals, and they were a lot bigger than I had expected.

Although there was no shortage of these beautiful animals where we were hunting the challenge grew greater and greater after I missed my first chance. We made a number of unsuccessful stalks that took anywhere from three to five hours. The ashes from the burned grass combined with a very fine powder from the Serengeti Desert made breathing tough at times. Worms emerging from the ground left holes that were ankle twisting blister building, feet-and-leg grinders. This was a much hotter and drier climate than where I had previously hunted bongo in the rain forest.

I shot a nice roan just before dark on the fifth day. (It was so cold that I had worn a down jacket and gloves all day. The dust from the Serengeti blocked the sun and kept the temperature down.) We had stalked within shooting distance when the roan came out from behind a tree and was started towards us. I rested my rifle on Borge's shooting sticks and waited until I got a clear and quartering shot at 120 yards. The bull humped up when the 300-grain Nosler bullet from my .375 H&H Magnum struck it. It then ran approximately 25 yards before going down in a large cloud of dust.

When we all arrived at the spot, we found only one drop of blood, however. The roan was gone! We started to track the bull but we quickly ran out of light. In Africa, dusk is short and darkness comes quickly. Borge said we would look for the roan in the morning. We both felt my shot had been a good one, but we shouldn't push the animal. We returned to the spot the next morning at first light, and found one more drop of blood. We were able to follow the roan's tracks though, and ten minutes later we walked up on the bull. It had died on the trail, facing its back trail, waiting to ambush whatever had caused its pain. I was pleased and relieved that we had found it and did not have to track it for two or three days, as can happen. The western roan is probably one of the toughest-to-kill animals in Africa, ranking up there with the Cape buffalo. The roan was the second most important animal for this safari, as the Lord Derby eland is by far the most majestic animal.

On day seven, not long after first light, we encountered a great bull western hartebeest into the Toyota; Hamadu my head tracker shared a piece of the liver he was eating. I ended up eating that piece, as well as the balance of the liver. I had never tasted any better.

Little things, such as this, are what make big memories. On day eight, not too long after first light, we came across the fresh tracks of another group of eland. After a brisk, 40-minute walk, we caught up with the herd and carefully moved ahead of it so we could be downwind. We backed off after seeing no bulls, though. We met up with the same herd a short time later and saw it did have a bull. We stalked that herd all morning and every time we got close to it, there were cows between the bull and us. Borge felt we had pushed the animals hard enough, so we headed back to camp for a lunch break. As we walked back toward the Toyota, we came across the very large tracks of a lion. We looked further and found small group of lion had been "working" the area. Borge said he would have to warn the villagers that there was a pride near them. Back in camp, the first order of business was to take a shower and shed all the trail dust before lunch. A great commotion occurred when five vehicles with horns blaring arrived in a cloud of dust. When the entire group was assembled, they had two trumpeters march in front of the group to announce their arrival. I walked out of my Ronda Val to find myself in the middle of the group of men shaking hands with everybody in sight. I was amazed to learn the Lamido, a Cameroon VIP as powerful as a king, had arrived with the region's governor, police chief and an assortment of bodyguards. A total of 20 people were there to have drinks and friendly talk with Borge. What an honor! I could only watch and enjoy Borge talking with everyone, as I did not speak their French language.

We had seen quite a few warthogs that morning. One had very large tusks. That came between us and the herd of eland we were stalking. We let him go on his merry way not to interfere with the main quarry. Later on n the afternoon, too late to try to stalk one of them, we encountered a big herd of eland with three trophy bulls. We left them before dark promising ourselves that we would return early the next morning to try to find them again. Borge and I knew it would be the big day.

We found the herd's tracks at 6:45am on the ninth day. Borge parked our vehicle off the side of the two-track trail, and he and I loaded our rifles while the trackers picked up our extra water bottles. We would need them that day. An hour and a half later we spotted the herd moving away in front of us. The eland hadn't seen us, but they were moving away. Even undisturbed, the long legs on these animals allow them to travel faster than humans can walk. To catch up, we walked briskly, then trotted, and even ran for a while. We caught up with them several times, almost. Each time I had no chance to shoot. Eventually, I had a one shot opening, but I wasn't quick enough. A cow and small bull walked in front of my target, then the entire herd moved away. Borge said the animals allowed us to get that close because they were tired. We had pushed them for at least six miles that morning.

There was nothing to do except follow their tracks and hope to catch up with them again. A half-mile down the trail we ran out of tracks, and it was a while before our trackers were able to find them. An hour later, though, Borge suddenly set up the shooting sticks and said, "Shoot that bull there!" We had come upon the herd again. The bull was walking away from us, and I had no choice but to risk a "Texas heart shot". He kicked both hind feet and stumbled when I shot, got back on its feet, then staggered again. "Shoot again!" Borge yelled, and I did. The bull went down kicking, but it was dead before we reached it. My first bullet had traveled the entire length of its body before the perfectly shaped mushroomed bullet stopped just under the skin on its neck. "WOW, what a bull" I said when I realized what I had done.

I was pleased to have taken a giant eland bull, let alone a bull with 49-inch horns. What a trophy! We had chased that herd for six hours, but much to my surprise I was not very tired. We did tire out the herd, though. Borge said we had run these eland into the ground.

This was only the ninth day and we still had two and half days more to hunt. Borge, the crew and I kept on hunting and, on the eleventh day, Borge spotted a western bush duiker. When we started the stalk, it disappeared in the tall grass and ten reappeared. It obviously did not have a clue we were around. Borge again set up his shooting sticks and before long I had the fourth trophy of my safari. The last full day and one half of my safari, we saw two large herds of roan antelope, two herds of western hartebeest (one with a particularly large bull), and a big herd of giant eland with two or three bulls. That last morning, we stopped along the river for one last chance for the bushbuck. Instead of bushbuck, we spotted crocodiles in a large pool, a very good western bush duiker and another great western hartebeest bull. The safari had gone extremely well, with outstanding results to make this a very memorable trip.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt: Besides taking the elephant at 8 yards, we were even closer to another bull, before it unfortunately winded us and ran off. Fellow huntress took a giant forest hog, probably as the first woman ever. Fellow hunter took a good bongo and duikers in record class.
Equipment Recommendations: Gloves for walking in the jungle. If it rains a lot it can be problematic to get washed clothes completely dry, and one should accordingly bring three sets of light clothing and sneakers which can be easily cleaned after walking in mud.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? Yes
Why? This is the only place in the world where you can hunt forest elephant with a very reasonable chance of success. According to authorities as Tony Sanchez Arino anything over 40 pounds ivory in the forest must be considered very large. A huntress before me took a 52-pounder.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Due to the density of elephants in this area the government's allocation of elephant licenses this year was increased from 2 to 3 and is expected to be further increased to 4-5 in 2004 and the years to come. Air France lost our guns in Paris on our way from Copenhagen to Douala and they did not arrive before our charter plane departed for Lokomo next day. In order to be sure to have your own guns from day one in camp I'd next time seriously consider one nights stay in Paris which also will help American hunters to fight the jet lag.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I just wanted to give an overall observation on Borge's Ngong Cameroon bongo hunt. First as you can see in the report I rate him and his operation tops all the way through. Starting at 4:15 every morning, coffee and a bit to eat and we were loaded and off at 5:00. Even though I took a bongo on the first and third day, we maintained the same routine. What it says is that Borge is dedicated to give his hunter's 100 percent every day of his/her hunt. After I took the second bongo we hunted just as hard for the sitatunga, which all came about on the next to the last day of the hunt. Like I said in the report, there could not be any better outfitter and PH than Borge with Ngong Safaris.

After our morning hunt, coming back to the lodge between 12:00-12:30, we would have lunch and a rest. Then in the afternoon we would be off with the pygmies calling for duikers.

I have a short story about a charging blue duiker. The caller had made his nasal duiker call about 2 1/2 times and a blue duiker came over a small rise directly at me, full bore. It all happened so fast my reaction was not quick enough that I shot behind him. I even tried a second shot but to no avail. It was such a shock; we all rolled on the ground and laughed. (Almost killed by a charging blue duiker.)

We also saw many monkeys, two gorillas, one crocodile, some very colorful birds and many butterflies (a whole rainbow of colors). The size of some of the trees in the forest was overwhelming. I would rate this experience as the ultimate antelope hunt. One other thing that happened was when we got in on the sitatunga and there were seven dogs that actually had the animal down when we got to it. Borge went in and tried to move the dogs off, the sitatunga got up and then I shot. Borge grabbed it by the horns and about got his back broken as it put him on his backside. After Borge and the dogs were clear, I got a second shot to put him down for good. I would say it is probably the tightest quarters I have ever had to shoot in.

If Seeking Restitution, What is Sought? Outfitter offered a discount to come back. I told him I would not hunt this area again. He offered a discount on a bongo hunt to be arranged at SCI show with Tommy Morrison. At the SCI show we reached an agreement. I paid a deposit and Tommy was to confirm with a contract. The contract was not the discount we agreed upon. I asked and got me deposit back.


ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This Hunting Trip Report Form is for a January 2000 Lord Derby eland hunt with Ngong Safaris. I noticed in the SCI Annual Hunter's Convention "Evening Auction Guide" that Ngong Safaris has donated a Lord Derby eland hunt that they value at $21,000.

I booked my hunt with Tommy Morrison and his company, Sporting International. This was the worst hunt I have ever taken. I shared camp with Byron and Sandra Sadler, who had taken bongo with Ngong Safaris in 1999. They saw eland several times but were unable to take one. After six days of not seeing a eland or shooting anything, I shot a warthog. My PH, Geroud, upon sighting game, would have everyone get out of the safari vehicle and gather at the back for him to access the animal. After the animal ran off, he would make his determination. I could not get Geroud to change until I went to the outfitter.

After much complaining, I got to see eland for part of one day. Geroud made a bad stalk, we went left, and the eland went right. Geroud then announced that the trackers were tired, and we would return the next day. It was about 2:00 p.m. I never saw another eland.

I got a shot at a roan, and I made a bad shot. We tracked the roan the rest of that day and the next without finding it. I never got a shot at a Nigerian hartebeest because Geroud could never determine which was the male. I never saw a buffalo, elephant, bushbuck, waterbuck, lion or hippo.

I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Do not use Adventure International for booking because of incorrect information and lack of attention to details.

Two of us had hunted for Lord Derby for seven days with no luck and seeing very few animals, and we had only three days left. I requested we not spend 11:30 am to 4:00 pm in camp, but use this time to hunt. The heat of the day is not the most productive, but we were running out of time. Both of our PH's refused to provide these extra hours in the field for us.

I made it very clear to Borge prior to the departure from camp, provided written instructions prior to departure, and numerous faxes (see attached) when we returned to United States. My instructions were not followed and Ngong Safaris did not respond to my numerous faxes and provided no assistance when they realized they had made a mistake.

Delays by Air France were experience in both directions.

To: Ngong Safaris From: Gary Parker Date: March 9, 1998 Re: Shipment of trophies

Concerning the shipment of trophies for Gary Parker and Everett Madson, please advise Borge on the instructions concerning said shipment:

Master Airway Bill and all documents should state:

Cosign to:

Mr. Gary Parker C/o T.O.H. International 1510 Midway Court - E/201 Elk Grove Village, IL 60007

Phone 847-806-9170

Attn: Lisa Jamnik

Master Airway Bill should be to Chicago, Illinois.

Please advise when shipment has been made by faxing a copy of Master Airway Bill to T.O.H. International, Attention: Lisa Jamnik 847-806-9177 (fax), or to Gary D. Parker 402-563-4189 (fax).

Please check on any special crating or bagging of baboons to separate from balance of trophies.

Should you have any questions on the above, please feel free to contact me by fax 402-563-4189 or phone 402-564-0860 (evenings at home) or 402-428-7200 (business hours at office).

I hope Borge had a successful conclusion to his eland season.

P.S. Please advise on status of trophies. I assume you have completed bongo hunts, and trophies from earlier hunts will be shipped.

Faxed again on May 27, 1998 Borge, can you please advise on status of or trophies and shipping details.

To: Gary Parker From: Borge Martin Ladefoged of Ngong Safaris Date: October 22, 1998 Re: Response to fax concerning shipping of trophies

Thank you very much for your fax, as I have received two times.

In my last fax, I mentioned to you, that I would fax you back as soon as I had some news. I was in contact with Garoua Wednesday, and since that time the telephones has not worked, but today, it worked.

A good friend of mine (Esaie) has been on Cameroon Airlines, and found out, that the boxes left Garoua two weeks ago, but is passing Ndjamena to Abidjan to New York, by Air Afrique so the boxes are on the way.

In Garoua they could not tell Esaie what number of flight they have used between Abidjan and New York, but they proposed you (your shipping agent) to contact Air Afrique in United States, and get information.

The reason the trophies are sent to Omaha is my mistake. I overlooked the destination Chicago, but I think it would be very easy to get them shipped further to you as soon as they are in the United States. It would not be a problem in Europe. I excuse that mistake.

I hope this information can help you and will not give you further problems.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- NEW DOCUMENT ---------------------------------------------------------------------

To: Borge Ladefoged of Ngong Safaris From: Gary Parker Date: October 26, 1998 Re: Shipment of trophies

I am in receipt of your fax dated October 22, 1998, which provided some additional details, but still does not solve the problem or respond to my earlier and numerous requests.

As originally communicated to you at the conclusion of the hunt and in numerous faxes, the shipment should have been to Chicago, Illinois. Contrary to statements in your fax, "...I think it would be very easy to get them (to) ship further to you as soon as they are in USA," is not accurate. Only the original shipper (Ngong Safaris) can change the final destination.

Since all arrangements have been made for clearance in Chicago, my instructions were not followed, and you are the only one who can change final destination of shipment. I am again asking you to make contact on your end to change final destination from New York to Chicago, Illinois (reference earlier faxes for specifics).

I sincerely hope you can respond favorably to avoid continued delays and expense.

To: The Hunting Report From: Ngong Safaris Date: January 1, 1999 Re: Gary Parker's complaint

I have mailed you recommended all conversation I have had with Gary Parker.

First of all is his report to you not true. He did not mention to me, that he was unhappy with the hunt, but he was sorry that he did not get a giant eland. Eland hunt is not a guaranteed hunt, and they can be very difficult to hunt, you know that for sure, so I think it is very strange to complain something 10 months after the hunt is over. In Europe you have to do it immediately, and signed by PH and the hunter.

Gary Parker arrived January 28, 1998 and left February 2, 1998 and got 11 days hunt. That's what he paid for. Of on or another reason they thought they could stay until February 11, 1998, (without my opinion) where the next clients came in, that was not possible, but he was unhappy with that.

He say he did not see much game. That is not true. And that he did not walk, that is not true. We tracked eland three times, but without luck, the bulls where not in these groups, and another time we had a long walk to try to find them. On that walk, Gary Parker wounded a big warthog that we never found.

When you hunt eland, you are so concentrated as we did, you do not have much time left to try to take other animals.

Normally we do have a rest from lunchtime to 16.00 in the afternoon, and that is normal. Nobody is able to hunt day after day from early morning to late evening, but we do not have a fixed time where we had to be back in the camp.

I am the only PH in Cameroon who has sent trophies home this year. The reason is that the new minister changed the way to get signed the zites.

He wanted to sign them in Yaounde instead of in Garoua. I mailed all documents to the Danish General Consul of Denmark, and he got signed all the zites for me, so I was able to ship out the trophies.

I did that with Parker and Madsons in September, but made a mistake. Instead of sending them to Chicago, I shipped them to Omaha. I excused that mistake in the conversation papers. Then I tried to change the destination, but Camair refused that, because the boxes were in that moment in Ndjamena. (Chad)

The boxes returned to Douala, and than Camair accepted to change the destination, and did it, but the boxes were still there for two weeks ago. The reason is that Cameroon Airlines had thrown away the original LTA.

In the meantime I was in Cameroon in December. I send my man down to Douala to arrange the problems, that's how we found out, Camair have thrown away the original LTA.

My man in Garoua is a good friend of the Director of Camair, and he has promised to take care of that case.

I have really done a lot to arrange that problem, so I am sad, that Gary Parker do not want to understand how much I have done. I made a mistake with the first LTA b got it arranged. It is not my mistake Camair have thrown away the papers, and not shipped the boxes.

I have hunted many of the famous hunters from the United States and Europe and nobody has ever complained anything about my outfit, or the way I handle the things.

I hope my explanation is satisfying.
