We recommended that you discuss your rifle calibres with your outfitter according to the animals you wish to take and remember that shot placement by far outweighs ballistics. In South Africa a temporary import licence is necessary for guns and ammunition. Here again your outfitter will provide you with the necessary documentation and information beforehand.
Make sure that you bring sufficient ammunition with you as ammunition for some calibres are not readily available locally. It is always preferable to bring your own weapons on a safari to South Africa. We do however have rifles and shotguns for hire at a nominal charge. Ammunition can also be provided and is charged for separately.
