Travel Hints & Information for Your Hunting Safari

The following is pertinent information to ensure the success of your African hunting safari.

Please study the information contained on this and the pages on the left.

Below, are some of the issues that are often asked by visiting hunters. 

  • T.I.A. stands for “This is Africa”: Things will be unfamiliar, people who speak different languages, a pace that moves a bit slower than what you may be used to, be prepared for sudden changes e.g. gun or hunting policies and people who even drive on the wrong side of the road !
  • When in Africa enjoy all the new things you see and people you meet. Remember you are up to 10,000 miles from home and in a foreign country. Feel free to ask any questions that we may not have addressed in our Travel Hints or information you need clarification on.


Make copies of everything, passport, birth certificate and bring these copies along on your trip. Pack them in a separate bag from your originals !

Safari Information & Contract

We will send you a form called “Booking Contract and Indemnity”.

Please fill in this form with the information of everyone in your group and email it back to us. This information is essential to complete the paper work needed for hunting permits and the eventual export of your trophies.

On the document we also ask about possible game wanted over and above what is offered on your selected package.  This information is important to us to plan your safari before you get to South Africa as we sometimes need to hunt on different concessions for different species. You are not locked into these animals, but only list ones you are seriously interested in hunting. South African law requires us to have these contracts before you may hunt with us.
