It is great news to hear that after decades Uganda wildlife has recovered to the point where hunting has been opened again.
In particular elephant and buffalo populations have reached levels where they are creating a problem. An oufitter will manage the hunting and the locals will benefit from the income generated.
Great news and hopefully other African countries will see the benefits of controlled hunting and follow suite.

Good news.  Unfortunately I doubt I will ever make it over to your side of the pond to hunt.  From what I understand, it is a good deal for all involved.  Revenue goes to the locals, they also get the meat and a population is kept in check.

Planning a trip any time soon?

SD, I have to say that even being this side of the pond does not make it any more affordable. In the press release they state that the operator will be :

Uganda Wildlife Safaris is expected to target high-income foreign tourists.

So that excludes me as well!!!

Uganda has always targeted high income foreigners. That is why the name Uganda is synonymous with scam in America.
