What is the currency of South Africa? 

South African Rand is the currency.

USD.

What is your policy on Wounded Game? 

If you hit the animal, you will pay for it.

What is the Success Rate on getting all of the animals I’m after in the Package?

Can I change my mind on animals to hunt? 

You only pay for the animals you harvest (or wound) at the end of the day. We can change packages to fit your desires or needs and build custom hunting packages for you.

Can I rent a rifle for my Safari?

About 80% of our clients do this, as they do not want to travel with their rifles internationally. If you fly through London, which is much cheaper sometimes, you will not be able to bring a rifle, so this is the best option. Rifles are included free of charge in our packages.
