Duration of Safari: We cater for hunts from 3 days to 21 days depending on the number of animals that is sought. The ideal duration is 10 days to ensure you a successful Safari. Your safari will be discussed with you in full detail prior to your arrival.

Rifle Choice: Rifle choice is of preference by hunter although we recommend calibres from .270 to 300 Win Mag. We also cater to hire our own Rifles and ammunition to avoid hassles at Airports. We recommend 50 rounds of ammunition for each calibre for your safari.  Shooting distance will range from 100-250 yards.

You will also get the opportunity to sight in your rifle on a range prior to the Safari. This is always recommended after a weapon has been transported for long distances. Suitable rifle ranges with solid shooting benches are available. Prior to your departure from home be sure to practice with your chosen firearms so you are at ease with their features and operation. We suggest your plains game rifle to be sighted in two to two and a half inches high at one hundred yards - this will in effect enable you to comfortably take shots out to two hundred and fifty yards without having to compensate for distance. A scope is also highly recommended for typical Eastern Cape conditions. ( i.e. 3-12-42).
