Firearms and Ammunition

Whilst gun selection is a personal choice, automatics are not catered for. Therefore , we advise a 30 calibre bolt action scoped rifle which would be suitable for antelope and leopard. Premium grade bullets such as Barnes North Fork or Swift are suggested. For dangerous game the minimum caliber is 9.3 or larger.  For thick skinned dangerous game such as Buffalo and Elephant solid bullets are recommended.
Scope and mounts are important and must be of good quality 60 rounds per caliber is suggested divided up between premium, expanding and solid bullets.
Rifle choice for cats should have a premium scope with good light gathering on an illuminated reticle which really helps in low light conditions. We do have firearms for hire if the need arrives.

( ) Sling With detachable
     swivels
( ) Scope Variable 2x8, 3x9
     or similar

Spare batteries for the illuminated scopes.


Visas & Valid Passports

Valid passports. Visas can be purchased at the airport on arrival and are US 30 per person. Good idea to have correct amount in notes.
