In this post, we'll go over the key considerations for bringing a rifle on a hunting safari in Southern Africa, including the necessary permits and paperwork.

If you will be bringing your own rifle, download the SAP 520 temporary rifle import permit and the trophy requirements document. Please note to accompany your SAP520 form, you require:

  • Copy of your passport
  • Copy of your itinerary
  • Proof of ownership of your rifle; form 4457 from your local customs office
  • Proof of export (obtained at the airport upon departure of US or from country of origin and may not be older than 6 months old!
  • Letter of invitation from us, your hunting outfitter

If clients would like assistance through customs, we recommend using one of the following:

(b)   Rifle Permits, website www.riflepermits.com
(c)    PHASA, website, http://www.professionalhunters.co.za/

Visitors bringing firearms into South Africa for hunting purposes, will be asked to fill in a SAP 520 – Temporary Import Application which is available from your outfitter, or which can be downloaded off the SAPS Website athttp://www.saps.gov.za/crime_prevention/firearms/import_info.htm, or which can be filled out on arrival. We would suggest filling in the form beforehand to save the processing time at the Police Office.
