    apart from you might hav posted this in the wrong section and may not get looked at, as much by the right guys

    my opinion does drift towards the 30-06, just you need to go out and put some confidence practice in as those kudu take a bit of stopping but can't see any reason why the 270 won't do the job but as i don't hav a 270 , but hav a 30-06 that is my reasoning
    sure ther are those on here with a .270 that will be able to tell you more about it's suitability
    sorry can't really help much more than this

    Amberdog, I hope, and am sure you will have a cracking time I have taken most plains game now and 2 of the big five. All my safaris I took my Tikka 270, and I shot nearly all my plains game with this calibre using a 150g bullet.

    Having said that if you are going to take one rifle and you are going for Bull Kudu and who knows maybe Zebra ? I would take your 30.06, this will do it all. The 270 will as well but the extra bullet weight is probably the best way to go.

    Let us know how you get on, I expect a full report with piccys on your return. Good luck.

    - pack light, laundry really does get done every day.

    - don't forget to put your ammo in a locking cash box. You generally don't need more than a couple boxes.

    - make sure paperwork is ready at the airport and make sure you grab your guncase and get to the SAPS office as soon as possible to avoid queuing.

    - Take a jacket, evenings are cold and early morning drives on the back of the bakkie are also freezing.

    - take lots of pics and make sure to post a report!
