WITFONTEIN HUNTING SAFARI'S – Tour Program for companions

7 days of luxury with a combination of hunting and safari. This tour is for the individual who would like more than just the hunting experience and wishes to bring a companion (a non-hunter).

 

 

MONDAY

Photo Safari ending with Champagne Bush Brunch
Free of charge (included in daily rate)

 

Our best chance of spotting wildlife up close, is during the early morning hours. The antelopes move through large areas to find the best browsing, but also to find the best protection against leopards, hyenas, caracals and other predators. We drive around in an open Land Cruiser, which ensures the best possible view and photo opportunities. Later in the morning when hunger arises, we end our safari at Kudu Rock. Here we will serve a wonderful traditional and lavish African Champagne Bush Brunch, while you enjoy the magnificent view of the African Bush.

 

Night Safari
(Price $75 per person)

Do you want to have the ultimate safari experience? Then you should join our popular night safari where we drive around with a large spotlight and experience the African bush and its animals in an entirely different manner. With some luck you may experience some of our nocturnal animals such as bush babies, ant bears, porcupines, caracals, leopards, etc.
At the end of the drive we will stop at “Flintstone Cave”, where we will be met by our chefs and be seated around a warm fire where they have prepared a 3 course meal for us. Dining around a fire in the middle of the bush, listening to the sounds of the night and drinking a glass of red wine is truly an experience of a lifetime.

TUESDAY

Welgevonden Big 5 Safari

This tour is one of the absolute highlights of the trip. Matswani is today one of the largest private reserves in South Africa, and we have more than 40.000 hectares of beautiful nature, and all the animals you expect to experience during a safari in South Africa. In the middle of this unique nature, one of the few UNESCO protected areas in the world, we will find more than 50 different mammals including the Big 5; lion, elephant, leopard, rhino and buffalo.

You have the opportunity to go on a walking trail on your own, as we have paths marked around the reserve. Just remember to let a staff member know when you are leaving. Of course, there is always the option to join your partner on the hunt and experience the South African bush from another perspective.

Tribal Evening with Tswana Culture, food and free wine
(Price $59 per person)

In the evening we are invited to a private dinner at our chef’s, which gives us the opportunity to experience how the indigenous black population once lived, and in some places still do. This is an extraordinary chance to ensure that you gain some historical insight into African culture and lifestyle, in addition to a contemporary awareness.

The local culture and lifestyle are in many ways incredibly exciting, and we will be able to taste their unique food and beverages. We are also introduced to some of their customs and traditions. In many ways, we should envy their way of life, they may not be rich in assets, but they are wealthy in human experiences and especially in respect for one another and their values.

 

 

SATURDAY

Price - Free (included in daily rate)

Early in the morning, we commerce our walking trail. During our trek our experienced guide will relate the characteristics of the Waterberg Mountains, in regards to the impressive fauna south of the equator and the distinctive surrounding nature. Simultaneously, you will gain some insight into the animal breeding- and feeding areas, an insight which will be especially exciting when learning more about antelope behavior.
