Suggested Rifles & Calibers

This can become a heated debate indeed. The general rule applies in this case where we suggest that you bring the rifle(s) you are most comfortable with. It is important to spend time on the shooting range before your African hunt commences. You will sight-in your rifles prior to commencing the hunt. However, you must be familiar with your rifle.

Apart from the suggested calibers, it is our recommendation that a 30-06 or 300 Win Mag and a .375 would cover all your needs sufficiently. Do not think this to be a requirement – it is merely a suggestion. If you intend to hunt any one of the Big Five, it is required by law that a .375 is the minimum caliber with which you will be permitted to hunt.

Please bear in mind that, according to South African law, it is prohibited to bring a semi-automatic firearm into the country. You are also limited to bringing in 100 rounds of ammunition per caliber into the country. Depending on how many animals you aim to shoot, we suggest about 50 rounds of ammunition per caliber should be adequate, but you can bring up to 100 rounds per caliber.

Remember the cleaning equipment!
