The hunting:

Hunting begins in the early morning hours looking for tracks of the specific species you are hunting. Your professional hunter will accompany you with native “Pygmy” trackers and hunting dogs. All-wheel drive double cab vehicles, equipped with necessary tools for the terrain are used.

Morning hunts are normally the best time of day to track and go after Bongo, Sitatunga and Forrest Buffalo. The afternoon hunts are shorter and mainly for Duikers and Possible Red River Hogs. The Forest hunting is exciting with awesome nature scenes .

It is also incredible to see the Pygmy trackers and dogs working. Hunting is mainly on foot and out of blinds near the edge of large clearings.
