In an easy-to-read format, it gives detailed information on all aspects of hunting in Benin, Botswana, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. It lists each country?s hunting rules and regulations, firearms and ammunition import laws, trophy fees, harvest results per hunting block, and cost of hunting licenses. It also includes maps of countries and hunting blocs, checklists of the animals that occur in each country, checklists of the animals on license, background information, currencies, health and travel advisories, and visas.

Whether you are planning your first trip to South Africa or Namibia and want to get insightful information on the who, what, when, or where, or whether you are planning a trip to Ethiopia for an animal such as the mountain nyala (for which there are only a handful of licenses each year), Safari Guide II will clearly show you what to expect?from the preplanning paperwork to the point when you actually start hunting.
Have you ever wondered how to import your firearm to Africa? Do you know how many firearms you are allowed to take? What about ammunition? What inoculations are recommended for what country? Have you researched the hunting blocks in the countries you want to visit on your next safari? What animals can be legally hunted in each country? Do you know what the official trophy fees are for each country? What are the caliber restrictions for shooting a lion in Tanzania? Do you know which big-game animals are protected in Botswana? If your lack of knowledge has held you back from taking an African safari, Safari Guide II is the answer.
Each country has a detailed step-by-step ?What to expect? essay written by a person who has been there multiple times. It takes you from your flight to Africa, through customs, to the safari hunting area, and back to the airport. Safari Guide II also gives a detailed and valuable rundown of what to expect when exporting your trophies. This edition also includes detailed sections on the best places to hunt elephant, lion, leopard, and Cape buffalo.
Safari Guide II includes hundreds of color photos as well as color maps and hunting blocs of each country. The hard-hitting, useful information found in this guide will help you, the hunter, understand the bewildering number of rules, regulations, and customs of each country so that you can properly plan and enjoy your safari to the fullest. Be an informed Dark Continent hunter and purchase Safari Guide II BEFORE you purchase your next safari. It will save you thousands of dollars and make your next big-game hunting safari in Africa your most enjoyable adventure yet. More than a dozen contributors?including Jack Atcheson Jr., Rolf Baldus, Craig Boddington, Dirk de Bod, Fred Duckworth, Michel Mantheakis, Jason Roussos, Diana Rupp, and others?have made this the most up-to-date guide available today.
