I think I saw one of Jim Shockey's shows several years back on a hunt he did there. He used his own gun, a muzzleloader if I remember right so I assume from that it's possible.

If its recoil does not bother you, do as Mac did and buy a .300 Weatherby. Ammo might be hard to find in many places, but you should be able to plan ahead and take enough for where you're going. It's certainly enough gun for anything that walks in this world, including an elephant in a pinch if you have solid bullets and you can convince the local game guard that it's a legal caliber.

When I went there 7-8 years ago, it was a major hassle. I used the outfitter’s rifle. Learn some French if you go. Other than the PH/Outfitter, almost no one spoke any English!

He's never had anyone bring one...he says it's possible but difficult. Just hoping to talk to someone that has actually done it.
