Guns & Gear 
All arms should be transported in shock-proof rifle cases. We recommended that you bring your own rifles with which you are familiar. 
Pack ammo separate from guns, in locked metal
container. Pack it so that it can be reached
easily, for you will have to take it out for
inspection.60 Rounds per gun would be enough.
No Semi Automatic Rifles. No Rifles of the same
caliber per person

Importation of firearms:
Clients bringing fire arms into South Africa for
hunting purposes, will be asked to fill in a
Temporary Import Application Form (SAP 520)
see link on this page-and can be completed
before arrival in order to save precious time.

Please remember to use black ink only and DO
NOT sign it until you are in the presence of an
official at the airport.Once a temporary import
permit is issued, it is valid for that individual only,
the required minimum age is 21 years of age. They are issued for a period of no longer than six (6)

No more than two hundred (200) rounds of ammunition capable to be fired by the firearm may be imported. It must be packed in a hard container.
Application for a temporary import permit will be processed without any costs.
