Trip Planning

Air Travel:  We suggest that you book your flights to the international airport of either Johannesburg or Cape Town, with a connection to Bloemfontein. You will be met by one of our team members at Bloemfontein airport and transported to the reserve, a 2½ hour drive.


Best Time to Hunt:  The best hunting is from April to October with high temperatures from 85ºF in April and October and 65ºF in June and July, with night temperatures as low as 20ºF during June and July.


Medical:  The reserve is a malaria free area.  A first aid kit is always available and a doctor is available within a radius of 30 km (20 miles) from the reserve with more sophisticated medical facilities available in Bloemfontein 240 km (150 miles) from Philippolis. We recommend that you have travel, medical and personal insurance to safeguard your trip.


Clothing:  This is just a suggested list and provides guidelines to essential items. Each individual must determine his/her own needs: 2 x smart/casual outfits, 1 warm jacket, 1 warm sweater, 3 long hunting pants, 3 long- plus 3 short- sleeve shirts / polo / t- shirts, 4-5 pairs socks, 4 sets underwear, worn in hunting boots, comfortable camp shoes, gloves, belt (hunt and everyday travel), cap, light rain gear and light wind jacket. Personal items:  binoculars, flashlight (with extra batteries), sun glasses, sun screen, small back pack, knife, rifle cleaning kit, camera, video camera, extra battery/charger, ammo belt and ear plugs.

Nothing like a roaring fire to warm a chilly night and add cheer to your party. It’s the type of care and attention to detail that makes your stay so enjoyable and makes you want to return again and again.
