Clothing and Equipment

CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT

Lightweight camouflage or khaki clothing and comfortable smooth soft-soled walking boots are recommended during the hunt.  For cold morning and evenings, a sweater and windproof jacket are required.

However during the day, we suggest  sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat for your comfort.  When packing for your trip, please keep in mind that laundry is done on a daily basis.

Also include a flashlight and reading material.  Clients transferring to hunting area via chartered aircraft should pack minimally.  Don’t forget binoculars and camera.

WEAPONS:        

Because African Game has an incredible ability to endure we suggest a rifle ranging from a .300 caliber onwards. For dangerous game a .375 or larger caliber is required. Though ammunition is available in South Africa it is best to bring a good supply with you.

Should you be unable to bring a rifle and ammunition these are available for hire at $25 per day (30-06, 300 Win). 

WEAPON PERMITS:

You need to declare your rifles and bring copies of “proof of ownership”. Temporary rifle permits are issued at your port of entry into South Africa or Zimbabwe.

BIRD HUNTING:

Limited bird hunting is available and booked upon request.  For the pot: maximum 2 guinea fowl, thereafter $10 per guinea fowl and $5 per sand grouse, dove or francolin.   

VIDEO CAMERAS / ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES

When bringing a video camera or any other electrical appliance, please pack convertors for the country you are visiting.  In South Africa we use 3 pronged round hole plugs and some 2 pronged round hole plugs.

Electric current is 220V.
