The Estate

The Widaine Estate is a 70,000-hectare sporting estate based on the banks of Lake Bin El Ouidane in the Azilal province of Morocco Atlas Mountains.

The area is renowned for its steep and undulating topography and hosts a vast range of unusual flora and fauna that you will struggle to find anywhere else in the world, including Barbary partridge, boar, quail, pigeons, and doves.

Lake Bin El Oudine covers 1,300 hectares of the estate. The lake is approximately 7 kilometres long, and its clear waters and scenic views make it a popular destination for tourists and outdoor enthusiasts. The lake is also known for its fishing, with species such as carp, black bass, and pike being found in its waters.

Barbary Partridge

The North African boar, a subspecies of the wild boar (Sus scrofa), thrives in the diverse ecosystems of the region, displaying unique adaptations to its environment. Known for its robust build, bristly coat, and formidable tusks, the North African boar holds a significant place in the region’s ecosystem and has become a sought-after species for hunters.

These boars inhabit a range of environments, from dense forests to arid scrublands, across countries like Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya. In the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, the North African boar encounters a terrain of steep slopes, rocky outcrops, and dense vegetation, offering both challenges and opportunities for those engaged in driven boar shooting.

The driven boar shooting in the Atlas Mountains is a celebrated tradition, attracting hunters from around the world. Local guides, with their intimate knowledge of the boars’ behavior and the mountainous landscape, play a crucial role in ensuring a successful and ethical hunt. Trained dogs are often employed to locate and flush out the boars, heightening the excitement of the chase.

One distinguishing feature of the North African boar is its adaptability. These creatures display a keen ability to forage for food in varied environments, consuming a diet that includes roots, fruits, insects, and small mammals. Their adaptability has allowed them to survive and thrive in diverse habitats, contributing to their widespread distribution across North Africa.

The tusks of the North African boar are prominent, with males typically having longer and more curved tusks than females. These tusks serve various purposes, from digging for food to defending against predators or rivals. The size and shape of the tusks can vary based on factors such as age, genetics, and environmental conditions.

Conservation efforts are critical for maintaining the ecological balance and sustaining populations of North African boars. Responsible hunting practices, guided by local regulations, contribute to population control and habitat preservation. By striking a balance between conservation and hunting, efforts are made to ensure the continued existence of this remarkable subspecies, allowing future generations to appreciate the natural beauty and cultural significance of the North African boar.

A Day In The Field - Driven Boar Shooting In Morocco

Our shoot days commence at 07:30 with a delightful buffet breakfast on the Widiane Hotel’s top floor. Half an hour later we’re off on a comfortable 4×4 journey to the first drive, where you will be introduced to your experienced loaders and escorted to your pegs, deep in the mountains.

We typically shoot 2 or 3 drives, lasting anywhere between 40 minutes and two hours. Lunch is normally enjoyed in the field after the second drive.

A day in the field guarantees an adrenaline rush as soon as you take your peg.

Enjoy the vast tapestry of Moroccan wildlife from your peg including other shootable species such as Moroccan Jackals.

We exclusively use shotguns and slugs, so no prior rifle experience is necessary.
We return to the hotel by 16.00 – allowing time for guests to refresh at the spa or pool. Evening brings the perfect end to your day – drinks, sunset views, and a delicious dinner.
