Rifle/Shotgun/Handgun Recommendations

Rifles

All ranches that have Exemption may hunt year-round. In our area of operation, most of our shots will be limited to 200 yards due to the toughness
of the African game and with the possibility of having to shoot through brush we
strongly suggest the use of a .30 caliber or larger rifle.
Those that have issues with recoil such as the ladies and youth we suggest nothing smaller
than .6mm/.243 with the 6.5 Creedmore being a preferred option.

 

Dangerous game requires a minimum caliber of .375 H&H, however we prefer that guests
bring .40 calibers for hunting dangerous game.
Calibers that we can easily get Ammunition for in South Africa (In the event they get
misplaced by Airlines)
.243, 6.5 Creedmore, .270, .300 win mag, 300 short mag, .308, .30-06, .375 H&H, .458 Win
mag.


We do have an option for Guests to hire rifles and ammunition.

Shotguns

 

We utilize shotguns for all bird hunting activities.

3" shells.
