Grand Safari Bushnews – June 2016

It all started very well in the Congo, with the first hunters harvesting some bongos, yellow backed duiker, river hogs, forest duikers and even sitatunga …

It was now Peter Flack and myself’s turn to have a good time in the rain forest, looking for an elusive forest Sitatunga.

A major crisis between Namibian concession holder and his Congolese partner changed the whole situation. As Peter Flack and myself arrived in camp, all SA PHs had been ordered to leave the country with immediate effect. Peter’s hunting permit was not in camp, we had no vehicle, no more management staff and had to leave on day 2 of the hunt. To cut a long story short, and after a 15 hours taxi ride and 22 road blocks, we finally reached Brazzaville where we could catch a flight back home.

Unfortunately, Grand Safari has stopped all its activities in the Congo until further notice.
