Commonly Asked Questions

Are these adventures safe?

There is always an element of risk while on a hunt, but seldom are there any problems with the well-established safari companies that we choose to partner with.

Do I require trip insurance?

It is always a good idea to have Travel/Trip insurance, and there are several insurance agencies that offer total coverage. RipCord and Global Rescue are two agencies that we recommend.

Do I need to be physically fit?

The better physical shape you are in, the more you can enjoy all facets of your Safari. However, much of our travel will be done by safari vehicle.

Regardless, it is important to discuss your physical condition with us before embarking so that we can establish a hunt that is suitable to your level of fitness.

Can I bring my own firearms?

Usually, you should have no problem bringing your own firearms on a safari. We do this all the time, and we can assist you in making that a reality. Alternately, you can always rent firearms from the safari company, if necessary.

Please note that not all airlines will handle firearms and may have different requirements. Once you have decided which airline you will be flying with, let us know and we will ensure the process is smooth and easy.

Who will look after my trophies?

The safari company will deal with all aspects of trophy care, including field prep, dipping, packing, and arranging proper shipment to your taxidermist.

Are others allowed to accompany me on a safari?

Yes, all are welcome on your safari, usually with little-to-no issue. You will simply need to advise your safari operator of who and how many people will be travelling with you.
