South Africa.

If you want to visit South Africa, you must produce a valid visa before you can enter into the country. Upon arrival, a visa will be issued for a visit for tourism or business purposes and is valid for a period of 90 days.

There are some countries that are exempted from visa control, which means that citizens from those countries do not need a visa to visit South Africa.

Climate

Hunting at altitudes in South Africa is around 5,000 feet, The climate is very dry and in the early morning the temperature can be -10 degrees, but usually  from around 09:00 will be quite warm, and as the day goes on you will be wearing short-sleeved attire as it reaches 20-25 degrees by mid-day. It will get cold at night, so for the early morning Game bird shooting, we suggest cold weather clothing, however, wear several thin layers as it will soon warm up and you will need to remove some layers.
