Bow Hunting Information

At Tholo Safaris we offer walk and stalk bow hunting. Tholo Safaris also offers strategically placed blinds for bow hunters all over the property. Bow hunting is very successful at Tholo and growing in popularity. We recommend that all bow hunters come well prepared, with accessories and spares that they may need, as Botswana does not offer much in regards to bow hunting supplies.

Rifle Hunting Information

As traveling with a gun can sometimes be a bit tedious depending on where you are traveling from or to on your trip we offer all our clients the option of using our rifles on their safari with us. (Please contact us for a list of our rifles.) We charge per round of ammunition used.



Should you wish to bring your own firearm on safari please take note of the following Gun Information:
A maximum of three firearms are allowed: either two shotguns and one rifle /or/ two rifles and one shotgun. VAT is charged on ammunition upon entry into Botswana. A maximum of 100 rounds per firearm is allowed.

Very important:
When traveling with firearms and ammunition you are required to pack them separately in lockable cases (not allowed to be together in one case).


In Botswana it usually takes up to three weeks or longer to obtain a firearm permit from the time a request for one is submitted. Therefore if a guest would like to bring his/her own firearm it is important to organize this well in advance.

In order to obtain a Temporary Import/Export Permit we will need the following for each Firearm:

We will fill out the application for temporary import permit, submit it and obtain the permit on your behalf in Botswana.

*Please note the above information/requirements are subject to change without notice. Please ensure you find out about the firearm regulations for your travels as each country and airlines rules are different.
