Most hunting is conducted in our cooler months March through to July. Temperatures will be anywhere between 30°F and 60°F, cool in the early mornings, warming up in the middle of the day with evenings getting cooler again. In our hotter months August through to November the temperature can rise up to 100°F, especially in the Zambezi Valley areas, Matetsi and the lowveld.

Recommended Firearms and Ammunition

For most plains game any medium calibre bolt-action rifle will do, such as a 30-06, 300Win Mag, 338. For dangerous game the legal minimum calibre is a 375 H&H Magnum required to hunt thick skinned game such as Elephant, Hippo and Buffalo.

I recommend shoot the largest calibre that you can handle well. 458, 458 Lott and 416 have been popular choices. 40 rounds of ammunition per calibre should be sufficient. It is recommended that the best proven premium bullets should be used such as Swift A frame, Barnes, Noslers, Trophy bonded and Monolithic solids for thick skinned game.
