    I will be traveling to Vic Falls, Zim via Windoek and returning the same way. Due to flight connections I will have to spend a night in each direction in Windhoek. Can anyone advise what needs to be done in terms of paperwork for this? Can't believe I have to fill out temp import licenses both ways? Can the rifles be stored with the police in the airport overnight? or???

    Thanks!

    Jerome,

    Thanks for the info. I thought there might have been a way around that, but as you say, it is simple.

    I noticed that it states no solid point bullets. Does that means you can't take "solids" for Buffalo?

    Cheers,

    No solid point cartridge is allowed to be used on antelope or any other species in Namibia, however as I read it it does not mean that you cannot import or transit to or through Namibia with solids.

    This is the exact answer my friends need to go to Botswana after arriving in Windhoek.

    Namibia is so easy!

    ..just so you know, the 'solids' that they get really uptight about are the blatant 'military' type solids. I have never had any problems with large caliber (.375 and up) DG solids or my benchrest solids..
