Four Exciting New Hunting Destinations in Africa

3 posts in this topic

I just learned that Ghana,Burkina Faso,Liberia and Benin allow commercial hunting. It's particularly unfortunate that Benin allows lion hunting. It's an old story isn't it? Are lion populations large enough to allow big game hunting. Again there are so many species which are so rare that they're virtually unknown which hunters are shooting? I really wish that these countries could somehow develop tourism as an alternative to hunting. I do know that Mole in Ghana and Pendjari in Benin are decent national parks for tourists.

The hunting blocks surrounding Pendjari are visited by 70 hunters per year, and provide for 50% of the current budget of Pendjari. In essence, there would be no national park without the hunting blocks.

 

There was already a thread here on ST discussing lion hunting in Benin. I recall that the quota was very low, and even then the success rate of those lion hunts was not great (I mean that apparently coming back with a lion trophy is quite difficult)
