Choice of weapon
Bring the weapon you are familiar with. A 6-power sighting telescope and 8×30 binoculars are sufficient. Since the weapons are subject to heavy wear in the bush, the robust repeater is still the first choice. When choosing the calibre, do not go below 7 mm.
The choice of calibre depends on the type of game; and the following minimum energies apply:
- 1350 joule for Springbuck etc.
- 2700 joule for Hartebeest, Wildebeest, Kudu, Oryx, Eland etc.
African game is extremely tough. Calibres like 300 Win. Mag. 8×57, 8x68s, 9,3×62, 375 H&H Mag have proven to be the best.
The shooting distances in the grass savannah are usually between 100 and 220 metres. We also have suitable guns for hire, including ammunition.
