No handguns, semi- or automatic weapons are allowed into Namibia. There are no problems obtaining licences for firearms at point of entry to Namibia, and it is recommended that any calibre from .270 and up be used for hunting. A complete shooting range is available at Byseewah for zeroing in weapons upon arrival. Appropriate weapons and ammunition are available for hire.
No vaccinations and medication are required, but anti-tetanus injections are recommended. For those going to our concession areas, malaria medication may be an additional requirement. Lip salve and sun screen lotion are a must.
Lightweight cotton clothes in khaki or green, long trousers and long sleeved shirts are recommended for hunting as protection against thorns and the sun, although short sleeved shirts and shorts can also be worn. Sturdy, worn-in hunting boots and a sun hat are also a necessity. A jacket is required for the cool evenings and mornings.
