All trophies are cleaned, disinfected, dipped and packed ready for delivery to a taxidermist of your choice. If you choose to have your trophies processed in Zimbabwe, we will have them delivered to the taxidermist of your choice. If trophies are to be shipped out of Zimbabwe, these will be handled by Chipitani Safaris.

Passports & visas
Valid passoprts are essential. Visas, if required can usually be purchased at the port of entry and currently cost US$30 per person, however, it is best to check with your local travel agent before depature.


Firearms & ammunition
A medium calibre bolt-action rifle such as a .30-06 or .300 Win Mag is suitable for most plains game and leopard. Large antelope such as eland require a minimum calibre of .338. If dangerous game is to be hunted, a .375 H&H Magnum or larger is recommended. Use only the best premium grade bullets available such as Nosler, Barnes or Trophy Bonded. Solids are recommended for thick-skinned animals such as buffalo and elephant. Sixty rounds per calibre is suggested. It is wise to practice your shooting well before the safari so that you are totally comfortable with your rifle/s and ammunition.
