South Africa Plains and Dangerous Game Hunt #166

South Africa Plains and Dangerous Game Hunt #166

This superb outfitter has done well for us including on some free ranging lions. First time we ever saw a trail cam used to watch a lion bait and check manes, size etc. Very innovative!! We like that a bunch. This excellent PH, well known in SCI ranks, hunts all over South Africa, but especially hunts along the Kruger Park border for dangerous and plains game. Whether you are interested to hunt the Big Five on the borders of the Kruger Park in South Africa, or in hunting sable and plains game in the prime areas of Zimbabwe or in tracking down a leopard in the remote wilderness of Botswana – this PH can handle all your needs. Very professional, capable in the extreme. Hard working, well organized, a gem!

Due to the diverse eco-system found in South Africa, some species are only to be found in specific areas and regions. Because of this, you may need to hunt in more than one area. We suggest that you limit your safari to two areas to alleviate travelling time.

Clients: NOTE!
Ammunition must be separated from weapons and may be packed within checked luggage, but must be properly secured in an ammunition case or solid box. No ammunition may be packed loosely in checked baggage or within the same case as firearms.

All luggage, domestic and international, is now being screened in South African airports. Screeners are finding ammunition in checked bags that is incorrectly packed and are forcing passengers to remove it from their bags, which is causing all kinds of havoc.
All ammunition must now be packed and transported in a lockable ammo box placed within your checked luggage. A manufacturer’s carton is no longer sufficient. Remember that there is also a limit of five kilograms of ammo per passenger. That includes the weight of your ammo box. And don’t forget to declare your ammo at check-in.

We strongly recommend that ammunition be packed in lockable cases, which can be handed in as loose items at the firearm counters to avoid possible delays during checked baggage screening.
