Recommended Guns & Calibres
A rifle in the .30 calibre range is recommended to cover a wide range of game hunting. However, for the dangerous 7 a minimum .375 caliber is recommended, which is also a great all-round hunting rifle if you don't want to carry more than one rifle on safari. A .270 to a 300WM should be good for large and small antelope. Please bring between 40 - 60 rounds of ammunition per rifle. All rifles must be sighted in on arrival to ensure accuracy, since lost or wounded animals are to the account of the hunter. We can offer a company rifle where required. A large selection of rifles are available to rent.
Importation of Guns
By law a maximum of 2 rifles are allowed per person (not 2 of the same caliber). Pistols and revolvers must be specified for hunting.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE THAT IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO BRING SEMI-AUTOMATIC GUNS INTO RSA.
A maximum of 200 rounds are allowed to be brought into South Africa, although airlines restrict how much you may carry by weight. Most .30 caliber ammo are easily available in SA.
