Certain species requires special licences/or permits, in particular CITES permits. CITES permits can be obtained from federal wildlife permit office. On most plains game the trophy fee includes the licence fee. If your Safari is scheduled to take place in any our Nature Reserves, a hunting permit is required for each specie and the number of each specific species in each hunter’s name – please indicate on your Safari contract exactly what species you are interested in hunting. By doing so it will be able for our offices to buy the necessary hunting permits (in the hunter’s name) before the commencement of your Safari.

Firearms require a temporary import permit. Please see below for downloads, or the “Hunters’ Support” website to assist you in obtaining these. ( Bow hunters do not need an import permit to bring their bows into the country.

For most plains game up to Eland, a 7mm Mag.,30-06,.300 Win. Mag./Weatherby,.338 Win. or similar calibers work well, and opt for the greatest bullet weight available per caliber. A minimum caliber of .375 is required by law for all dangerous game species.
