Porcupine hunting is generally not a priority for most African hunters but done when the opportunity arises.

African Porcupine Species
- Crested Porcupine - Hystrix cristata
- Cape Porcupine - Hystrix africaeaustralis
- African Brush-Tailed Porcupine - Atherurus africanus
Where To Hunt A Porcupine
There is quite a major overlap of porcupine ranges in Africa. For example the Cape porcupine of southern Africa can be found across the whole continent up to Kenya and Uganda. Outfitters don't specify porcupine type in the trophy list.
It is highly unlikely you can hunt an African brush-tailed porcupine as they occur in a broad swathe across central Africa from Guinea to Kenya. The hunting countries it occurs in don't offer porcupine hunting.
So you can hunt a non-specific porcupine in Botswana, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
