Our PH in Botswana said that military camo is banned, but 'designer' camo you use for hunting is okay for wear. So who's right? I dunno

Dee I shall ask one of the Defence force Generals for clarity - my opinion is that it has been so long since we hunted on public land they may have relaxed the rules some.

Olive green is my Botswana hunting color of choice- khaki is too light and I get confused with a photographic tourist!

I travel throuhh Botswana a lot . I almost always wear regular hunting camo T shirt . Have never had an issue . I do have to say then normally with regular shorts .

BDF can be difficult so to be on safe side rather go with regular green or dark Khaki as advised by your outfitter.

Happy Hunting !

Ok Dee so it seems like the Staus Quo no longer have a problem with hunting camo so long as it’s not military issue and particularly not if your “hunting” rifle is an RPG or AK 47 and your “PH” goes by the name of Comandante and your hunting buddies are all called comrades. And leave the red Beret at home.

LOL, well that's great to hear, appreciate it. I'll leave my USMC BDU's at home then and since we bow hunt, no worries on them being mistaken for military weapons.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
