    Professional Hunter License

    Botswana
    Open a shelf company (US$100), with that company build a business plan based on tourism, submit said plan with police clearance certificate, health certificate, character reference letters any other PH or guiding licences to immigration... It's a tough and extensive process, if they approve you they will give you a letter saying that pending the passing of the PH exam you get a residence permit. When they advertise the PH exam that they do in local newspapers you apply and hope to be invited, when that happens, go to the exams that are surprisingly comprehensive and when you pass you get a work permit and the licence.

    Cameroon
    An outfitter pays for a work permit on entry.

    Central African Republic
    An outfitter pays for a work permit on entry.

    Ethiopia
    An outfitter pays for a work permit on entry.

    Mozambique
    you need a PH licence from somewhere else, two passport photos, letters of recommendation, an outfitter to sponsor you and US$100.

    Namibia
    Need a residence permit, a tough one to get and then you can do the license.

    South Africa
    Need a residence permit, a tough one to get and then you can do the license.

    Tanzania
    if you can get an outfitter to register you, study some and pass the exams that are held at the start of each year in Dar es Salaam, is an easy country to get into, as soon as you pass the exams, the outfitter takes your PH licence and with that applies for a work permit.

    Uganda
    They are just starting to think about exams there but at present its pretty easy to get in.

    Zimbabwe
    Need to be a citizen.

    Here is a great read for anyone either wanting to become a professional Hunter or just wanting to learn the hunting outfitting industry in Southern Africa... or any hunter passionate about Africa for that matter. Not an inexpensive book but well worth it!


    Game Ranch Management by J du P Bothma and JG du Toit (Fifth Edition)

    The growth of the wildlife industry in South Africa can be measured by the growth in the number of wildlife ranches. In 1965 there were only four wildlife-fenced properties in the former north-western Transvaal. By 2005, 40 years later, there were more than 10 000 properties with wildlife exemption permits in the nine provinces combined. As the wildlife industry continues to expand, so does the need for knowledge upon which it must be based. Game ranch management 5 is a comprehensive guide to establishing and maintaining a healthy and profitable wildlife enterprise. It is updated to include the vast volume of new information available, to the benefit of those who work in wildlife conservation as well as those who are merely interested in it.

    Hardcover: 979 pages
    Dimensions: 7.2 x 9.9 inches
    Weight: 4.1 pounds
