Due to the fact that the outfit has a daily laundry service it is unnecessary to pack large volumes of clothing for your Southern African adventure. On arrival in South Africa hunter will need to obtain a temporary import permit for your firearm/s. You may bring in up to three firearms but not more than one per caliber, no semi-automatics. Hunter is advised to get all forms and permits done before their arrival. This is extremely helpful and time saving as the procedure can take time if there are a number of hunters on the flight. Concierge service from Hunters Permits Africa will do all your paperwork up front for a nominal fee and hunters will be personally met on arrival with their completed import permits requiring only a signature. Hunter can expect warmer weather to hunt, but long sleeves and long pants are a must. Layering systems are recommended. Included in your South African Safari are all field preparation of trophies. This includes skinning, caping, salting, tagging of hides, horns, tusks and skins. Also delivery to the local taxidermists. This outfitter recommends that the mounting of trophies be done in South Africa as their taxidermists have an intimate knowledge of the animals as well as the skills to do the work best. The turn around time is far shorter in South Africa and the costs are less than to have them mounted in the U.S.A. or Europe. Full gear list to be provided if requested when booked.
