Firearm Legistlation

South Africa has imposed new stringent firearm legislation. No semi-automatic firearms, handguns for self-defense, or more than one firearm of the same caliber may be imported. To bring firearms into the country you must be older than 21 and provide proof of ownership from your country.

Should you decide to go through the customs process alone please budget at least 4 hours for the issuing of a temporary firearm permit.

We would strongly recommend the use of an authorized agent and a charter flight to camp. This will expedite the process and ensure a speedy and trouble free arrival into the hunting area.

You will be required to fill out a SAP 520 form and this can be supplied to you prior to your arrival. For further firearm documentation and law please visit our website.
