Hunting

Rietfontein in its current form started in 2003 as a private game reserve for the exclusive use of its owners. As the game population matured over the years it became necessary to control game numbers through hunting. The farm is fully enclosed with game fencing and hunting can be done year-round.

The farm comprises 16000 ha (40 000 acres) and is the largest dedicated private hunting concern in the Western Cape. The undulating and varying nature of Karoo broken veld with 80 km of riverine bush makes it excellent hunting terrain for the hunter on foot while the extensive area allows management to offer rifle hunting and bow hunting without risk of interference of the different disciplines.

Game vehicles are all 4X4 and well equipped for the terrain.
There are 16 species available for hunting, including the plains game: Kudu, Gemsbok, Giraffe, Black Wildebeest, Eland, Red Hartebeest, Zebra, Impala, Blue Wildebeest, Springbok, Black Springbok, Blesbok, Mountain Reedbuck, Duiker, Klipspringer, Steenbok.

We employ full-time Professional Hunters and our hunting guides have been professionally trained by the Nature College, the top guide academy in South Africa.

Bow Hunting

Bow Hunting

There are currently 8 hides in operation in various habitats, some equipped with automated self-feeders and game cameras allowing for specific targeted hunts. The newer hides have tinted Perspex windows, which give the hunter a wider field of sight. The riverine bush and many natural water courses make for excellent walk-and-stalk hunting.


Rifle Hunting

Rifle Hunting

All the plains game can be hunted with relative ease due to the undulating nature of the farm. We also specialise in father-and-son hunts, first hunts, trophy hunts and hunts for disabled hunters.

Foreign Clients

Foreign Clients

The laws of South Africa requires that foreign hunting clients be treated differently to local clients in order to guarantee service levels and safety to hunters unaccustomed to African conditions. Although we at Rietfontein do not agree with the principle since we deliver the same level of service to all our clients, the legislation forces us to charge different prices to local and non-South African clients.
