 Firearms / Ammunition
Two rifles is usually enough for any safari. Minimum caliber for Buffalo and Hippo is a .375. Bring 1 box of solids and 2 boxes of well made softs. Solids are necessary for the Hippo and in some circumstances for Buffalo.

For Lion, Leopard and most antelope you should bring a minimum of a .300 Win Mag or similar caliber. Usually 4 boxes of soft nose ammo is more than enough. There are many types of ammunition available and the most important thing is to find the ammo that you shoot most accurately with.The Perfect Shot

It is wise to brush up on shot placement before the safari and the book 'The Perfect Shot' is a great guide. Also, a lot of the shooting we do is off shooting sticks (a tripod that we carry around to shoot off) and so familiarizing oneself with shooting from these can also help.
