The hunting season in South Africa is from February to December. This is to ensure that the rains do not affect the hunting.
Weapons and Ammo:
Firearm permits are issued upon arrival at Johannesburg International Airport. We will provide you with an invitation letter once daily rates are paid. We recommend you to bring a .30 caliber weapon for all plains game and cats. For thick-skinned dangerous game like Buffalo and Elephant, the minimum caliber allowed in South Africa is .375. However we recommend something in the .416 caliber provided the client can handle the weapon adequately. For a single weapon all round safari a good scoped .375 should be adequate. Bear in mind the rifle should be transported on the airline in a solid hard case. For daily use while in the field we would suggest that you bring a soft case to protect the rifle.
A maximum of 100 bullets per weapon are allowed into the country for your safari.
We keep a well-stocked medicine box in the main camp. We also advise to bring with you any particular medicines that you may need during your safari.
Lightweight but protective clothing is recommended, green or khaki being the most suitable colours. Trousers or shorts are usually worn with a loose fitting shirt. Comfortable footwear is essential (something similar to desert boots), as are a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses, also a wool sweater or jacket for the evening and early mornings. Clients might like to bring a set of clothes for evenings in the camp. However, we recommend that luggage be kept to a minimum if a charter flight is necessary due to the weight restrictions on the light aircraft.
The trophies will be field prepared in the camp, ready for transportation to the taxidermist, who will prepare them for export to your nominated taxidermist from where it is routed to the final destinations you prescribe.
Meals and Drinks:
We supply great home cooked meals. Mostly venison of animals taken on the safari. If you have any allergies please advise us 3 months in advance to allow us to cater to your specific needs.
We provide local beers, South African wines and soft drinks along with a basic range of spirits in the camp. Please note that if you want any special spirits in the camp you will be required to bring it in with you.
Other Vital Information:
Each camp is complete with a cell phone in case of an emergency. We encourage clients to hire a phone prior to the safari if they wish to call home on the hunt. Some camps have regular cell network if you wish to bring your mobile phone.
In the case of an emergency we have cell phones to call in an air evacuation. We have bush landing strips within close proximity of all camps.
We recommend all our clients to take out both medical and travel insurance prior to the hunt. Global Rescue are very good and worth the money you will pay.
Visas and Passports
Nationals of certain countries will need to obtain a visa for entry into South Africa. Advice should be obtained from the South African Embassy in your country prior to your safari dates. In cases where there is no Embassy, please consult us so that we may assist but please do this in good time.
Please be advised that we only accept USD in cash, not travelers cheques. We also advise you to bring a few smaller denominations with you in case you wish to purchase curios etc.
