The forest is located 530 kilometers from the capital Ouagadougou, on the border with the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire.


It covers an area of about 125,000 ha. A transition zone between savannah and dense humid forest, the dominant vegetation remains savannah. However, the area also has vast grassy plains in the lowlands and beautiful forest galleries along the two perennial rivers, the Comoé River and its tributary the Lerabá. It also has natural pools scattered on both sides, which gives a good distribution of fauna in the central part, which naturally constitutes the hunting territory.

Since 2001, this wildlife reserve has been granted by the State of Burkina Faso to the Association inter-village de Gestion des Ressources Naturelles et de la Faune de la Comoé-Léraba (AGEREF/CL) in order to promote community-based management of natural resources within the framework of a tripartite partnership that includes the State, local communities and private service providers.


Method of hunting

Hunting is practiced on foot.

The objective: to get as close as possible to the coveted animal in order to shoot it in the best possible conditions of safety and success.

After a good breakfast, you will leave at dawn with a team composed of a driver, a guide, a tracker and a carrier. You will have lunch and will be able to rest at the camp or on sites set up for this purpose on the hunting territories. After you have eaten and rested, the hunt will continue until dusk.
