Fauna Safari Club organizes your customized hunting trip in Benin.
We’ve been organizing safaris in Benin for more than 20 years in Porga hunting zone, located to the Northwest of the country on the border of Pendjari National Park. In May 2014, the Benin government renewed our lease for another 10 years (until 2024), permitting us to really invest ourselves in the protection and development of this superb zone of almost 200,000 acres.
This bushy savannah territory is rich in Buffaloes and Roan Antelopes. We shot 10 buffalos out of the top 30 on SCI’s West Africa list, which speaks to the quality of trophies found in this zone. The other animals we are allowed to hunt are Lion, Hippopotamus, Western Kob, Western Hartebeest, Nagor Reedbuck, Sing-Sing Waterbuck, Harnessed Bushbuck, Oribi, Western Bush Duiker, Red Flanked Duiker, and Warthog.
Regarding lion hunting, the Benin government gives out very few quotas. This region has the unique trait of having very large lions that quite often possess a mane that is relatively large for Western Africa. These lions are hunted only through tracking. Our professional hunters are assisted by exceptional teams of trackers who will surprise you with the quality of their tracking. This hunt is athletic and requires good physical condition.
Accommodation is provided in a very confortable tented camp : Rocks Camp. It is made up of 6 spacious tents, each with en-suite bathroom, equipped with fans.
Hunting season : from beginning of January to mid - May.
