I have not been to Africa yet, but I usually hunt horseback and in remote areas. I used to carry my kit in an old boot top. I carry small custom turn screws and torque driver to tear down my rifle. I carry enough kit to completely and thoroughly clean my rifle. Last winter I took out all my stuff and built a kit around it. It is about 8 inches wide by 4 inches tall by 2 inches deep. It fits all my tools, cleaning kit, and extra parts. It fits nicely in a saddle bag.
