What to expect on your visit to South Africa
If it is your dream to hunt in Africa but heard about all the bad things about bringing your favorite rifle with, you can relax, it is actually very easy to do so. Bringing hunting rifles into South – Africa is no problem at all when you use a trust worthy agent.
What you need is a valid temporary import permit for your hunting rifle and Bob’s your Uncle you ready to “Live Your Dream”
I would not recommend that any hunter try and do the importation on his own, for less than $200- you can have professional people handle your paperwork for you.
My clients have been using Hunters support for their temporary permits. They are highly qualified and will handle you with respect.

Your Temporary permit will be your firearm licence in South-Africa and you can buy ammo for your calibers with it. At all times while you are in possession of your firearms you must have your Temporary import permit with you. When you are not using your fire arms they must be locked in a gun safe.
