Point Of Entry
We meet all our clients at customs exit points of OR Thambo International Airport. All travel will be in spacious modern double cab type vehicle that are also used during the hunt. At the end of the hunt we return the client to the customs entry point of OR Thambo International airport. Please note that hunters entering South Africa with fire arms must do so with a permit obtainable from the South African High commission and it is for the account of the hunter. This is of great importance to ensure a smooth entry at customs point in South Africa, and must be completed long before departure from your country. Please also ensure that your are in possession of a valid re-import permit for your weapons on return to your country. Taxidermist and Trophy export services are available on request and will be arranged and paid for by the hunter.
The Outfitter, Professional Hunter and camp staff will take every possible care and precaution to ensure the comfort and safety of the client. However, we cannot accept responsibility for any loss or injury, nor for any expenses arising from accidents, illness, or injuries. The client certifies that he/she is in good health of mind and body and that he/she understands and accepts the risk and dangers involved while enjoying the sport of hunting wild and dangerous animals.
WOW Africa Safari’s policy stipulates that hunters will never leave the camp without being accompanied by a guide to ensure the utmost safety of the hunter in the African Bush. We will make no exceptions regarding this matter. In the warm summer African months, sunburn is a factor that needs to be addressed and we highly recommended that all clients make use of a good quality sun block cream, to be supplies by themselves. Clients with special medical needs or conditions must inform WOW Africa so that we can prepare for their stay in an appropriate manner. Clients will be notified if the hunt will take place in a malaria area. In this case, the client will be advised to bring effective insect repellent. A trained first aid officer will be on hand and the first aid kit present in camp. We recommend that the client registers themselves with the MedjetAssist (TEL: 1800 527 7478).

Southern Africa climate is moderate- ranging from very warm summer days to fairly cold winter nights. Dress very informal! Our experience leads us to recommend the following items for safari: 4 cool shirts; 3 pairs of long trousers; 2 pairs of short trousers; 2 pairs of comfortable, lightweight hunting boots or sneakers(if preferred); bush jacket, sweater, bush hat/cap as well as socks and underwear; a rain jacket (March-May) and don't forget a torch (flashlight) with extra batteries. Where comfort and safety are concerned, we find that the natural fabrics are far better than synthetic.
March to May - Green
June - Green, Brown and Yellow
July to October - Grey and Brown
In our experience, the above list of colours have been proven to be the most effective for blending in with the vivid seasonal vegetation of southern Africa.
WOW Africa will advise their clients on what equipment would be needed to complete the hunt in question (specifics such as weapons, ammunition and other needs relating to a particular safari).
WOW Africa recommends that the client have adequate travel, medical and personal insurance to safeguard their trip to Africa.
WOW AFRICA will be relieved of any responsibility once the trophies are delivered to a local taxidermist in good condition. All correspondence from that point will be between the client and the taxidermist. WOW AFRICA will go through extra effort to make sure that the field preparation is of high quality, to prevent hair loss on the trophies.
If required (speak to your PH regarding relevant game), the client must obtain this permit upon returning from their hunting safari. WOW AFRICA will not be responsible in any ways for delays of trophies due to the client’s failure to do so.
