Outfit Overview 2021-03-03T11:43:18+00:00


Our family has been involved with hunting through many generations. My father, uncles, and brothers have hunted since they were kids. We as a family acquired our own Game Estate in 2003. It is on this farm, where I learned and honed my hunting skills. Myself have been hunting for the past 15 years and I have hunted most of the types of game there is.

We use different Professional hunters in my outfit. We are 3 Professional hunters that accompany clients on hunts.

Hunting Areas

Vaalwater – Private hunting Estates
Vaalwater is the closest town to all of our private hunting areas. The town is 2.5 hours drive north from OR TAMBO International Airport in Johannesburg.
The Area has a abundance of game estates. It is the Hunting Capital of South Africa.
We hunt 7-8 private game estates all ranging from 560 hectare to 4000 hectare totaling about 15000 hectares. Some of the game estates are our own, some we have concession leases to hunt on.
Our philosophy when it comes to hunting areas, is diversity. We utilize different estates that each offers something unique. Some farms have mountainous areas, most of them are bushveld (trees and shrubs) , some are along rivers, some are smaller but have a higher density of game to give clients more opportunities at a shot, than one would get on a 50000 hectare area.
The size of the hunting areas are a perfect balance between scenery, atmosphere, amenities, and provide frequent opportunities at game, with a good chance of success.
Our hunting areas provide clients with the whole spectrum of plains game for them to hunt. All of the animals are present on these estates with the exception of lion and elephant. It is also in these private estates that we get the opportunity to hunt the bigger wider spread buffalo. (40″ and up) as well as lion hunting.

Mahathi Bush Lodge


The Mahathi Bush Lodge caters for up to 10 guests. It is situated on a 2800 acre private hunting estate and forms the base camp. We hunt on this property and on our surrounding concessions.
The Lodge has two Chalets, two safari tents, a swimming pool, outside dining area, lounge, Wi-Fi and fire pit.
