And from the Tanzanian Embassy:

From the embassy of Tanzania:

"Hunting Regulations and Importation of Firearms and Ammunition
Hunters are expected to bring their own firearms and ammunitions. The minimum calibre permitted for big game (Buffalo, Elephant, Lion) is 375 magnum, with a bullet weight not less than 270 grains and 3850 foot point muzzle velocity. Without such a gun, you will not be issued with a license for hunting big game! You should also bring a medium range rifle, such as 308 Winchester, 7x64, 7mm, Remington Magnum 30.06, 8x68, 338, 9, 3x64 etc. for plains game (Antelope). In order for your host Hunting Company to arrange the licensing of your guns, you are expected to send the following details of your guns when booking with them for their professional help:"


As you can clearly see the .45-70 does not make the Minimum FPE requiremnt for DG hunting in Tanzania.

I've known people who've hunted buffalo with their .338's in Tanzania. Game scouts will let you hunt with just about anyhting once you get there. They should not be considered a source of legal refrence.

Jeff Cooper prefers a .460G&A for dangerous game if I am correct. The .460G&A is bit more rifle than a .458Lott. The .45-70 should not be considered to be an adequate DG rifle asit does not make the minimum power requirement as per the regulations in most south African countries.

I believe that you can use any darn rifle you want on a private high fenced game reserve in South Africa such as the one Donnie (Rich's PH) operates.
