LORD DERBY ELAND HUNTING IN CAMEROON
The Lord Derby Eland is considered one of the greatest trophies in Africa, and also a dream hunt for lots of hunters. The Giant Eland is the biggest of all the Elands found in Africa, holding thick and spiralled horns growing up. The mature bulls hold also a black mane around their big necks. The body size may be some thinner than the Cape Eland, so it may be also some lighter. However, the Giant Eland has much longer legs, making him some taller than any other Eland. Along the body, the Lord Derby has also very characteristics white stripes over a pale beige coat.
The Lord Derby Eland inhabits the Savannah region situated between the Sahara desert and the equatorial western African rainforest. However, Cameroon is nowadays the only country where professional operations are run because of safety and large wildlife.
The hunting season starts in December and goes up to May, once the rain season has started. Thus, most of the operations finish in April when the heat is also extreme. The whole hunting season is good for this hunt, being preferable early season due to the lower temperatures.
