Introduction

This pristine 30000 acre hunting area varies from dense mountain ranges to open wooded savannah plains and rocky outcrops. This diverse landscape ensures excellent trophy quality and is home to an abundance of game species such as Leopard, Kudu, Sable and Wildebeest to name but a few.

 

 “Sometimes at night when the world is very still, a soft wind comes sweeping across the veld. Then, if you are outside and listen very carefully, you can hear the story it has to tell.”

Herman Charles Bosman (South African Writer)

A minimum of a 375 is allowed for dangerous game. A 300 and 375 are good all round calibers for most plainsgame. 80 Rounds of ammunition should be sufficient, however, not more than 200 rounds are permitted per person, per caliber.

The mouth watering traditional African cuisine ,prepared by Kathy and her team, is enjoyed in the dinning room, or under the starlit African sky in our lapa area, where the day's hunting experiences are relived amongst the smells of the log fire and the sounds of the African night.
