Witkop Safaris is based at Witkop Game ranch where we are co-owners are nestled in the Freestate Province of South Africa near the small town of Paul Roux. The ranch was established in 1992 and boasts some 28 game species, which have provided excellent hunting experiences for clients from all over the world.

At Witkop, we maintain a network of experienced Professional hunters which gives us the depth to provide you with the service expected of a large outfitter, while still providing the personal service and attention to detail that we have come to be known for. All of our Professional Hunters have at least 15 years experience, well versed in hunting both Plains Game and the Big Five. We use well equipped and maintained vehicles and our recently completed Witkop Lodge provides first class accommodation.Witkop Safaris00007

 All of the plains game species such as Kudu, Zebra, Wildebeest, Hartebeest, Blesbok, and Springbok, to name only a few, as well as the Big Five can be hunted with Witkop Safaris on our many concessions throughout Southern Africa. Be warned, Big Game Hunting can be addictive. PLEASE CONTACT US TO RECEIVE OUR PROMOTIONAL DVD.

 Here at Witkop, you can hunt with rifle, bow, handgun, or black powder. In addition, we offer Wing Shooting opportunities in the form of upland bird hunting. The ranch is home to five species of Francolin, which can be hunted over Pointers; four water fowl species can be taken from blinds over decoys; driven guinea fowl can make for an enjoyable day as well as opportunities for excellent quality pigeon and dove hunting during the season. Our wing shooting is not high volume, but rather compliments and offers a change of pace during your stay. Except for Pigeons and Doves, we subscribe to wild bird bag limits as prescribed by the game regulations.

Witkop Safaris offers high quality Dangerous game and plains game hunting opportunities. All of the plains game species that South Africa has to offer can be taken on our numerous concessions or the Witkop Ranch. We take special care to take only the highest quality trophies available. Witkop Safaris will make all arrangements for your hunt to include: permits, transfers, accommodation, meals, and sightseeing opportunities. Your entire safari will be tailor made to suit your individual and personal needs. It is our goal to make your African Hunting Safari the most memorable and unforgettable experience of a lifetime.
