RIFLES

Cameroon law allows the importation of two rifles and one shotgun per hunter. There is a limit of fifty bullets of ammunition per rifle/shotgun.

Depending on the animals that would be hunted, we recommend:
Forest: Most of the time you will shoot at a distance of not more than fifteen/twenty meters, but with some bush vegetation between you and the animal. We recommend one big calibre (375 or minimum 416 for elephant), looking more for the grains of the bullet than for the speed. A scope is not needed. One shotgun is necessary to hunt duikers.

Savannah: The best option is the combination of two rifles: a 300 calibre and a larger option, 375 calibre or more.

CLOTHES & OTHERS

Forest: At least three complete dark green hunting outfits (long trousers, long sleeved shirts) and a light raincoat are recommended. Leather gloves, leggings and glasses to protect you from vegetation and insects. Two pairs of Gore Tex hunting boots and one pair of light shoes for the camp. Gore Tex socks are recommended.

Savannah: A couple T-shirts, long trousers for hunting and shorts for staying at the camp, good boots and during the early season, a light coat for the early morning. Don’t forget your sunglasses, a hat/cap, a torch, camera and your light-weight pair of binoculars. We have daily laundry services at the camps.
