Clothing and Equipment
Lightweight camouflage or khaki clothing and comfortable, smooth soft-soled walking boots are recommended during the hunt. For cold mornings and evenings, a sweater and windproof jacket is required. However during the day, we suggest sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat for your comfort. When packing for your trip, please keep in mind that laundry is done on a daily basis. Also include a flashlight and reading material. Clients transferring to the hunting area via chartered aircraft should pack minimally. Don’t forget binoculars, camera and plenty of film/memory cards.
When bringing a video camera or any other electrical appliance, please pack converters for the country you are visiting. In South Africa, we use 3 pronged round hole plugs. The electric current is 220V. The chalets are equipped with one adapter per room but no converters.
Eland Safaris and the 4×4 vehicles are equipped with basic first aid kits. Medical doctors are within easy reach in the towns near the camp. Although malaria has been controlled in recent years, it is recommended that anti malaria precautions be commenced prior to departure. Please consult your personal physician.
Eland Safaris will maintain the utmost possible precaution for your safety. However we cannot accept responsibility for any illness or accident, whatsoever, nor any expense arising from such illness or accident.
Although South Africa does not require a visa from most Commonwealth countries and in the case that it is required it is usually issued free of charge, we would still advise that you check with your local travel agents as to the requirements for the country or countries you will be visiting.

Payment by traveler’s cheques, credit cards or cash. (NO AMERICAN EXPRESS) Add 5% of total for credit cards.
