So Im almost convinced its not that dear to hunt Africa. I understand international flights and associated expenses are at my cost. Often it is dearer to fly to a major centre from a small town in Australia than between major centers, Logical but the cost starts before you get far. I travel too much attending work and it comes as a cost. i have a dream but I might do a cull hunt in Africa. It would be my first international trip so i am looking forward to your input. Firstly Id travel 3000 km to Perth so I get the shorter international flights and I have a mate in WA Id prefer to take my own rifle and develop loads before i go but is it easier to just hire one and buy ammo? Ive got options and may change rifles by then. Id prefer to use my own but what is the cost with transport etc?? or Can i just buy ammo when we arrive (pre-ordered) are there good gunshops easily accessible. Do the cheaper outfitters still provide a nice experience i think i can read between the lines and work out which ones are all inclusive (most, for service) but some are plus VAT on the quoted price is there anything to be aware of? hidden costs ? I wont be shipping trophies etc so i want it to be straightforward It seems like the stay is all inclusive but then there is tipping. somewhere I heard it was common to leave the PH with excess ammo, my reloads? some cartridges can be expensive, cheap is $1 a round , heavy stuff maybe over $5 round. Does tipping extend through the country City motel etc or just at Lodge. There might be a night each end in town, do i tip at a restaraunt or the airport? What do people think I can reasonably expect to pay for a cull hunt? The meat etc goes to the locals. I know this is their livelihood but im paying for the experience and the stock/animals that i shoot. It seems south Africa is popular and easily accessible, any better suggestions? What species would other people plan to cull? As a hunter looking for a new experience? Like ive seen porcupine on a list, i didn't consider it being a hunted animal, maybe they eat it. I was probably thinking the cull animals are plains game, what I probably considered was the antelope type stuff, im not an expert on them obviously. Most of my hunting would be feral pigs but ive shot Fallow, goats, foxes and cats, rabbits etc. All introduced species Anything I missed or that you can add.
