Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:None, considering how remote this area is.
Highlights of Hunt:Getting a really super Bongo after an exciting two hour track, hunting duiker with the Baka Pygmy, experiencing the tropical rain forest, seeing several Gorillas, including two huge silverbacks, the wonderful hospitality of Messrs. Damy and Xalto and their staff.
Equipment Recommendations:Rain gear, a couple of pairs of Palladium brand canvas boots, a few pair Darn Tuff or Smartwool brand light weight wool socks (tuck your pants into them to keep the occasional ants out), two or three light weight, long sleeve cotton shirts, a couple of Cortisone or Benadryl roll on sticks, the usual meds (malarone for sure, cipro, immodium - just in case).
