RIFLE AND BOW HUNTING INFORMATION
• For hunting in the bushveld we prefer rifles with a minimum calibre of .270
• For temporary import permits kindly see: (PDF file on rifles and importation)
• See rifles information on permits in word format attached
• You don’t need to fill out any importation forms for bows as they are declared sporting equipment
• Make sure that you pack all your equipment
• Should you need any equipment we can get it from the local bow-hunting shop in town
IMPORTATION OF FIREARMS
Visitors bringing firearms into South Africa for hunting purposes, will be asked to fill in a SAP 520 – Temporary Import Application which is available from your outfitter, can be downloaded off the SAPS Website at www.saps.gov.za.
Alternatively it can be completed on arrival. We would strongly suggest filling in the form beforehand with the assistance of your hunting outfitter to ensure it is completed correctly and to save the processing time at the Police Office for yourself and the Police.

At your request our personally recommended, professional taxidermists will make your trophies come alive for you to take home, creating lasting reminders of a dream come true!
We advise the use of South African taxidermists as they are exceptionally good at mounting the species of Africa. They have all the correct moulds and experience to perform a fine job and do so at a reduced rate. Usually, even after crating and shipment, South African taxidermists are 20-30% cheaper, this is especially true for international visitors as the Rand exchange rate to the US Dollar or Euro always works in the hunter's favour . Export permits are not required for finished trophies, except for CITES listed species. Obtaining a CITES export permit is a simple procedure.
Taxidermy can take from 6 months up to a year to complete but it well worth the wait. An added benefit is that our local taxidermists have easy access to additional skins at a nominal fee should your skins be damaged.
Africa Wild Safaris has a long-standing partnership with Taxidermists and they provide a highly professional and excellent service. Don’t be disappointed, use the best!
SOUTH AFRICAN WEATHER
Note: It would be nice to have a link to a daily weather website that can be on this page but that sits on the homepage given daily temperatures in Joburg/DBN/CT/PTA/Botswana/etc. I have listed the areas you hunt in and the seasonal (permanent temps)
South Africa boasts a wonderful climate with long hot summers and relativity short winters. A microcosm of the world, Southern Africa’s climates vary from Semi-tropical to Savannah lands, dry desert regions and rainy forest lands. Spring starts in August with summer extending from late September to March when autumn begins. Winter in South Africa stretches from May – July.
