Hunting and Accommodation at Sandveld Safaris
Hunting is conducted throughout the year but due to summer rains and extreme summer temperatures the month April through September are preferable.

Use only top grade, core-bonded type bullets. On a 10-day hunt, 60 should see you through. For Eland a 220-gr. bullet is the absolute minimum.
In the thickly wooded areas of the Bushveld and Zululand areas, shooting distances rarely exceeds 80 yards. Use a slow heavy bulletin the .30 caliber range.
For dangerous game, 375 H is the legal minimum.
