Clothing and Health recommendations
We recommend lightweight safari clothing, a wide brimmed hat, smooth soled walking shoes, a warm jacket, cap and gloves for frosty mornings and evenings. It is vital that clients take precautions against Malaria and Tick Bite Fever before, during and after the safari. Please seek the advise of your local health practitioner before the trip.
It is possible to hire firearms, however we strongly recommend clients to bring their own rifles, shotguns and ammunition. On arrival in Zimbabwe a temporary import permit will be issued once your firearm(s) and ammunition have been physically inspected by customs officials. It is essential that you state the exact amount of ammunition you will be bringing into the country.
Clients who transit through South Africa on their way to us will have to complete firearms forms for this country.
For dangerous game such as elephant, buffalo and lion, calibres of .375 or bigger may be used. For soft skinned animals, any weapon in the 7mm or .38 / .300 range may be used. Sixty rounds of each calibre should be sufficient. For the heavier calibre weapons we prefer a mixture of solid and soft nosed ammunition whilst just soft nose bullets are preferred for the lighter calibre weapons. Trophy bonded, Swift A-Frame or Barnes X are good choices.
When importing weapons for your safari you will also need to have a completed Firearms Temporary Import Permit Form.
