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:

Welgevonden Big 5 Safari (Price - US$ 135 per person)

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.

Photo Safari & Sunset Rock (included in daily rate)

Mid-afternoon we will go on another amazing safari which will end at Sunset Rock. A place and an experience, former guests have said to be one of the absolute highlights of the entire tour. This is where we will enjoy a glass of bubbly, chilled champagne, while the sun slowly sets over the Waterberg Mountains in a cascade of red and orange colors. Right here in the middle of the grandiose African landscape, at a time of unending beauty, you will feel as if no time is passing – and wish it never would. This is truly the epitome of overwhelming happiness, the African way.

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.

Friday:

Guided Walking Trail - 1.5 or 3 hours (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, regarding 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.

 

friday1

Tribal Evening with Tswana Culture, food and free wine(Price - US$ 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:

Christina’s Wallow & Photo Safari (included in daily rate)

After lunch our guides will pick us up in one of the Land Cruisers and take us to Christina’s Wallow, or rather some of the way there. To have the least amount of impact on the wildlife, we will make some of our way there by foot. Christina’s Wallow is a hide, where you will have a direct view of a watering hole which is used by many different species of animals, such as mere cats, giraffes, impalas, wildebeest, etc. In other words, it is important to have your camera ready as you are almost guaranteed, beautiful viewings of African wildlife.

After about 45 minutes of observation from the hide, we leave Christina’s Wallow and continue on a safari in the Land Cruiser before returning to the lodge.

saturday

Sunday:

Pilanesberg National Park (Price - US$ 145 per person)

Pilanesberg National Park is a beautiful area. Situated in a volcanic landscape, its impressive mountain formations and open plains is home to a wide range of antelopes and one of the world’s largest populations of the endangered White Rhino. Simultaneously, Pilanesberg offers “The Big Five” – Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino and Buffalo – in addition to cheetahs, hippopotami, giraffes, more than 300 bird species and so much more.
