**Animals of opportunity

These are animals that we happen to come across while hunting (baboon and jackal) and are usually not charged for. The only two instances that we charge a fee for these animals would be when a hunter specifically requests to hunt one or both of these animals as a trophy, and secondly, if a landowner has a price tag on them. If circumstances allow (when not stalking a kudu!) and we do happen to come across one of them and there is no charge involved, you may harvest that animal at no additional fee. As a primate baboons are subject to CITES import- and export regulations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most important: children under the age of 18 travelling with you

This is a critical piece of information you need to adhere to BEFORE you even leave for the airport. It became law in South Africa that any children travelling with you who are under the age of 18 must have an unabridged birth certificate with them. If the unabridged birth certificate of the minor cannot be produced the minor will not be allowed entry to South Africa.

Also make sure you have at least two open pages in the back of everyone’s passport. Your passport needs to be valid for at least six (6) months after your departure date from South Africa.

Is it legal to wear camouflage clothing when hunting in South Africa

It is legal to wear camo hunting clothes when hunting in South Africa. In Zimbabwe OR Mozambique you may NOT make use of camouflage clothing.

The most commonly used hunting clothes for both Zimbabwe and Mozambique is khaki.

Health issues when hunting in Africa

During our winter months (May-August) you will hardly see any bugs. All of the plains game hunting on our package deals take place in regions within South Africa that are malaria free. Some of the dangerous game hunts can take place in malaria regions in which case it is recommended that the required precautions be taken. Consult your doctor about malaria precautions prior to leaving. Locally we rely on bug spray a lot.

It is recommended that you purchase health insurance with a reputable, internationally known company before leaving your country of origin.

Visa requirements when hunting in South Africa

Hunters from the USA and some European countries do not need to apply for a visa for your Africa hunting safari.

Inoculations for your South African hunting safari

You do not need any special inoculations prior to your hunting safari. If you intend on visiting Zambia you will need proof of a yellow fever inoculation.

If your tetanus shot is questionable and a new one is due it will be a good idea to have another one.
