In the Central African Republic (CAR), armed militia groups, bandits and poachers present real dangers in most parts of the country.

There have been repeated attacks on Central African and expatriate travelers in the countryside. Poachers and armed men pose a threat to game hunters in north-central CAR, and the Lord’s Resistance Army poses a similar threat to hunters in eastern CAR.
