Hunting Information

Professional Hunters

Your Professional Hunter is your guide and companion while on safari. He is responsible for your safety and welfare and will ensure that you enjoy your hunt in every possible way. Your Professional Hunter is knowledgeable, experienced and familiar with the hunting areas and game. He speaks the local language fluently and is fully conversant with the Tanzania wildlife laws and regulations and dedicated to the conservation of wildlife. Your Professional Hunter will decide whether or not the animal is of trophy quality and we ask you to trust his decision.

McCallum Safaris was built on traditional hunting practices and our team of professional hunters is well known for maintaining the highest ethical standards.

Firearms & Ammunition

A maximum of 3 guns per hunter may be imported into Tanzania together with 200 rounds of ammunition per gun. The minimum caliber for big game is .375 and for small game .270. No handguns or automatic weapons are permitted. We recommend a minimum of 60 rounds for high caliber rifles (40 soft and 20 solid) and 40 rounds for a small caliber rifles. We also advise you to leave your hard rifle cases in Arusha and transfer your guns into soft rifle valises for the domestic charter flights.

We do have a selection of company fire arms which are available for hire for those who would rather not travel with firearms.

Safari Dates & travel Arrangements

All safaris start and end in Arusha. You should plan to arrive in Arusha (Kilimanjaro International Airport) the day before the start of your safari and arrange to depart from Arusha the day after your safari ends. Please note that the day you fly from Arusha to the hunting area and the day of your return to Arusha from the hunting area are travel days. Therefore if you are hunting for 21 days you should include two extra days. There are daily flights from Europe, the Middle East and South Africa to Kilimanjaro International Airport.

If you wish to include a few extra days before and after your safari to relax and visit some of Tanzania’s scenic game viewing areas this can be arranged in advance through our office in Arusha.

Air Charters

Due to the remoteness of our hunting areas it is necessary to charter into and out of camp. All air charters originate and end in Arusha and we do our best to arrange shared charters, wherever possible, in order to reduce costs. Baggage is limited to 44lbs (20kgs) per person, excluding rifles and ammunition. Soft duffel bags should be used for easier packing on the aircraft.

McCallum Safaris reserves the right to transport company employees as well as fresh supplies and provisions on all these charters.

Ground Transportation

Our hunting vehicles are all 4 wheel drive equipped with winches, VHF radios, satellite phones, fridges, a comprehensive tool box and a set of essential spare parts. Each hunting car has a team consisting of a driver, trackers, gun bearers and a Government game scout. We have stand by hunting vehicles in each camp in case of breakdowns or should you require the assistance of a baiting car.
