Clothing for the hunting field: Three to four sets of medium cotton clothing in camouflage colors such as olive greens, khaki and beige. A pair of well-fitting and comfortable hiking boots, a broad rimmed safari hat, warm sleepwear and sweaters or parkas for cool nights and mornings. Please be sure to bring warm clothing if your safari falls between May and August. Bring along comfortable clothes and shoes for evenings and excursions.
Bringing the right rifle to the hunting safari can make all the difference. The 300's are our preferred caliber. On medium to large game like Kudu and Oryx, we would not recommend a smaller caliber than a 30-06 and for large game like Eland and Giraffe, we recommend a 375 or similar caliber. Reason being that the front shoulder bones of these animals are much thicker than that of smaller game, easily stopped by smaller calibers if the shot placement is even just a little off target.
Bullets and Scopes
Everyone has their preferred bullets. Our preferred bullets are Barnes TSX in 180 gr. or higher, because the bullet retains most of its weight, is very accurate and has a high velocity.
The most preferable scope is what you as hunter are familiar with. A 3-9x40 scope is more than sufficient to do the job. The PH, Ruan, personally uses a Leopold VX 1 on his 300WM
It's small, effective and durable.
