South Africa Gun Permit

South Africa

The country of South Africa is easy to travel to with  daily flights directly to Johanessburg and Cape Town.  There are more species of plains game in South Africa than any other African country.  Dangerous game (Big 5),  available also.  There is much to do in South Africa, as it is a relatively modern country where tourism abounds.   It is a good place to take a friend or spouse.  All traditional weapons are legal in South Africa. Most hunting is done on concessions or ranches, which is game fenced.   This is the way it is done in that part of the world.  You will find the game wild and a challenge!

The country of Namibia lies north and west of South Africa.  It is an easy country to travel to and in.  The road system is excellent.  The country is sparsely populated with only about 2 million people.   The national parks and the ocean coastline make for wonderful touring and sightseeing.  Plains game hunting in Namibia is outstanding.  The mountain zebra is an excellent and unusual trophy. 

Dangerous game hunting is excellent and convenient, but with rifle only.  Bow hunting has been legal for a little over 2 years and becoming very popular.  I use several excellent outfitters in Namibia for bow and rifle. Please contact us for hunts in Namibia
