Although crime is unheard of on the reserve, and Camelthorn
safaris will take every possible precaution for your

The hunting season is conducted in the winter months
from March to October and temperatures can range from
-4 to +25 degrees Celsius. Lightweight khaki or camouflage
clothing and comfortable, smooth soft-soled hiking boots
are recommended during the hunt. For cold mornings and
evenings a sweater, windproof jacket, woollen cap, gloves,
and scarf are required. However, during the day we suggest
sunhats, sunglasses and sunscreen for your comfort and
protection. Also don't forget to pack your binoculars,
video camera or camera, together with plenty of film,
wildlife reference books, reading material and a flashlight.
Visitors need to bring electrical converters for video
