Airline and Travel Planning

Before you Book your Flights to South Africa

Airlines are constantly changing their procedures concerning transporting firearms and ammunition. Be sure to check with your airline before you book your flight for their baggage requirements and be sure to allow plenty of time between flights in case an unforeseen issue comes into play.

Airline Information

Airline transportation to South Africa is not included with any of our safaris. Your local travel agent can assist you with these arrangements; however some of them are not familiar with Southern Africa and traveling with your hunting rifles. If you are looking for an agent that has experience in this field, we and several of our clients highly recommend Custom Travel LTD.


Custom Travel LTD is located in Greenfield, WI. They have not only the experience to provide your air travel, but can also assist you with other helpful information, such as information on the area you'll be visiting including tours, health, firearm transportation and insurance related facts and more. Call them toll free at 800-728-5301 or visit their web site at for detailed information.


For hunters from the USA we highly recommend South African Airways as they have direct flights daily via Dulles (Washington D.C.) or New York (JFK). South African Airways is the National carrier, distinctively a class above other African airlines in terms of service and reliability with a 99.8% take-off record. You can visit South African Airways web site at for flight schedules and information.
