Rifles / Shotguns and Ammo

Your Safari Arsenal: Rifles Tailored to Perfection

When it comes to rifles, your own trusted companion is the ideal choice – a sentiment every hunter understands. However, we recognize that travel logistics can pose challenges. For those seeking a lighter load, we offer an array of calibers, each meticulously crafted.

Our rifles hail from either the USA or Europe. These precision instruments are more than tools; they’re extensions of your intent. Every rifle boasts quality optics, seamlessly matched to its caliber. Clarity, precision, and the thrill of the hunt converge.

Only premium bullets grace our chambers – whether expanding or solid. Each shot is a testament to your skill. Before the hunt, fire your hired rifle as many times as needed. Ensuring your comfort is our priority.

At Red Ivory Safaris, we equip you for the wild – where every shot counts.
