By law a minimum caliber of .375 is to be used to hunt any of the Big 5 (Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino and Elephant). A .375 is also a very versatile caliber and can be used on every plains game species as well ~ very good soft nose ammunition is always recommended, but especially on Big Five species. As recommendation for all plains game species, calibers such as .300 Win mag, 338, 7mm, 30-06 and the like are best suited for African antelope.


Choose a good quality variable scope to use on your rifle, as a suggestion 3×9 power is sufficient. Bring the rifle that you shoot best. We as Professional Hunters prefer good shot placement over and above any high power firearms

Firearm Importation:

We strongly recommend that all our hunters use the pre-arranged firearm import service by PHASA (Professional Hunting association of South Africa). The rifle permit is done by phase and therefore has to be arranged at least 3 months in advance. If you decide not to bring your own firearms, then we have firearms available that you can hire from us at a fee of $50-00 per rifle per day. Let us know and we will facilitate the paper work through PHASA.
