A group of hunters is creating an African version of the Wild West: a new state in the wild.
The hunters are called the Ombre people, and they’ve come to the region of Equatorial Guinea, in southern Africa, to build a hunter’s paradise.
They’ve created a network of local businesses, and even a museum.
They’re hoping to start a business called Ombres Africa, where people can buy guns, make guns, and hunt with the animals.
Ombres is not an official government department in Equatorial Guinean, but the OMBRE government is pushing to create it as an independent entity.
The group says its mission is to help create an independent region with its own constitution and laws.
The Ombrees are not new to the idea.
In the 1970s, they set up a hunting camp in a remote area of northern Mozambique.
And in 2010, they began a hunt for elephants in the remote forests of eastern Namibia.
Overseas observers have called the hunt a “wild West” and called it an “incredibly dangerous, risky and risky endeavor.”
They say the Oombre hunt is more dangerous than the hunting in Mozambican forests.
They’re concerned that the elephants will be trampled and killed if they are left to roam wild.
Omari Nkrumah, the Omer’s hunting manager, says he wants to start with elephants because he believes they are a more stable animal.
Nkrumahs family has hunted elephants in Mozumba, and he’s concerned that his family’s livelihood will be affected if the elephants are allowed to roam.
“The elephants are already hunted in the bush in Equatoria,” he says.
“We want to have the same kind of protection as the other big animals in Equators forests.”
The Omers have not yet decided on a name for the new state, but they are working on a plan to have it named after a famous African explorer, Charles Bantu.
Bantu founded the first African colony on Equatorial Africa in 1778, and in 1824, he led a group of people who made a second voyage to Africa, and helped the first people settle on the continent.
He is considered one of Africa’s greatest explorers.
“This is a very important moment in our history,” says Nkrums brother, Ammar.
Nambia’s government says the Omaris’ plan is illegal, and the Oameras have been accused of trying to kill the elephants.
The government has also accused them of poaching elephants, and Nkums brothers hunting camp is now under fire from locals.
Ammar says the government should take action to protect the animals, and that they will be able to survive in their new home if they have to.
“If you think of the animals we have here, they’re very friendly animals.
They eat grass, they like to run, they’ll eat anything,” he explains.
