First step into South Africa would be flying to Cape Town or Johannesburg via the International Airports. From there take a national flight onwards to Port Elisabeth. There we will pick you up and drive with you to our lodge.
The South African immigration authorities place great emphasis that there is enough space in your passport for the entries. Please make sure that there are at least 3 free pages in your valid passport before entering the country. If you travel with your children as a family, take a certified birth certificate with you for each child under 18 years of age. If only one parent is travelling with the child, a declaration of consent from the missing parent is also required for entry. Make sure that the declaration of consent is in English.
We are only active in the malaria-free area, so there are no requirements for certain vaccinations. However, we recommend that you refresh your last tetanus vaccination. If you are travelling with children, you should carry their vaccination card for all cases.
Medical care, hospital and medicines
Should you require medical assistance or medication during your stay, we will be happy to drive you to the nearby Grahamstown (43 km from the lodge). Please make sure you check in advance whether your health insurance covers treatment in South Africa.
Foreign exchange and payment methods
We recommend that you exchange an amount for smaller expenses (drinks/food during your trip) at your house bank before departure. As a rule, the exchange rate at a bank in your home country is better than at an airport or in South Africa.
In order to make a binding booking, a deposit of Euro/€ 400 or US$/$ 400 has to be paid into our account in advance of your arrival. The cancellation conditions can be found on our page at the general terms and conditions.
Please pay your final invoice for your stay with us in Euro/€ or US-Dollars/$ in cash on departure. Please understand that we cannot accept credit card payments for technical reasons.
Import of your own firearms
Please contact the Customs Department (local and South Africa) for all necessary transport permits. Click here to download the SAP 520 Import/Export Permit as a PDF file:
It is not allowed to import more than one firearm of the same caliber into South Africa, which also applies to shotguns. In addition, a maximum of 200 cartridges per weapon may be brought along.
You are welcome to borrow firearms and ammunition from us (see price list “Daily rates”). Before the first use, we will carry out a test firing with you in which you can get used to the handling.
We recommend you to choose your rifles for a South African hunting safari:
Small game: from .243
Larger game: from .270 -.375
In South Africa, there are big temperature fluctuations:
Summer 25 – 35 ° (December – March)
Winter 15 – 25 ° (May-September)
Clothing and equipment
Clothes should have a neutral color, khaki or green (hunting clothes) are best suited. For cold mornings we advise you to bring a windproof jacket, pullover, gloves, a good pair of hiking shoes and a headgear. Sunscreen is required all year round. Also consider a good pair of binoculars (8x or 10x magnification).
We talk to you in: German, English, Spanish and French
