No exceptions will be made what so ever



No immunization is required when entering into South Africa.

Inoculation against Yellow Fever might be required for visitors from some African countries. Please enquire from your Professional Hunter.

Hepatitis A: the CDC recommends this vaccine because you can get Hepatitis A through contaminated food or water in South Africa, regardless of where you are eating or staying.



Please consult your local doctor. We are born and raised in South Africa and have never taken malaria medication, which is not to say we have no malaria but through the last 2 decades we’ve had clients saying they will never take malaria medication again because it makes them feel drowsy and they have returned year after year without it. Please take note that we will take no responsibility if you decide not to take the medication.
