BW SAFARI | Hunting and vision

The hunting territory of MEKROU, with an area of 102,000 ha, is located on the edge of Park W, a transboundary biosphere reserve of over 500,000 ha.

BW-SAFARI has been the management company of the hunting territory of MEKROU for more than 10 years.

The surveillance system in general and anti-poaching has been set up since 2004 by BW-SAFARI, making this hunting territory one of the most prestigious in Benin.

These measures allowed for a great diversity of wildlife and the increase of each animal species. Safaris are conducted by professional hunting guides and a team of experienced and well-trained trackers for large and small game hunting. BW-SAFARI has two accommodation facilities:

It takes place in village hunting areas in the songs of corn, sorghots and cotton. The past of turtledoves and gangas are practiced near the water points in the evenings at sunset. We encounter francolins (partridges), guinea fowl, turtle doves, green pigeons, pigeons, gangas etc. It is practiced in the south-west of the hunting area in the fields of crops. To reach the small hunting camp, it is necessary to cross the hunting zone from north to south, which allows the hunters of small game to meet during this crossing, buffalos, elephants and all kinds of antelope etc .
