Gun and Caliber

A bolt-action rifle in Cal .30 or similar is sufficient. (.30-06, .300, .338, 8 x 57, 8 x 68). Your bullets should be 180 g or more.
For hunting Dik-Dik, Warthog, Springbok, Steenbok, and Jackal, a .243 Win, .270 Win or .308 Win is adequate.

A max. of 80 rounds of ammunition per rifle are permitted  to be imported to Namibia. The import of semi-automatic weapons are not permitted.

Upon arrival, you have to declare your rifle and ammunition at customs.
A hunting license will be issued for the duration of your stay in Namibia.


Your shooting range in the bush is about 30 m to 200 m.
For Springbok, be prepared to place a shot at up to 150 m (know your bullet trajectory). A 1,5 - 6 x 42 scope is sufficient.
