Huntershill Safaris is located on the malaria free Wildschutsberg Game Farm in the picturesque foothills of the Stormberg mountains near Queenstown in South Africa’s Eastern Cape Province. The Game Farm is 55 000 acres (22 000 hectares) in extent and is some 25 km long and 15k wide (15 x 9 miles).

About Us

The diverse terrain is home to over 60 different animal species, including many rarely seen species of buck from all over the world.  We have rhino, cheetah, buffalo, hippo, tigers and lions for viewing, including magnificent white lions.

This premier Safari destination offers trophy hunting, bow hunting, fishing and wing shooting. Buck available for hunting include sable, kudu, gemsbok, blue and black wildebeest, eland, waterbuck, nyala, blesbok, impala, steenbok, duiker, bushbuck, springbok, hartebeest, and reedbuck. Also available are other mammals such as baboon and warthog.

Huntershill Safaris offers a variety of different hunting packages. We take each individual’s specific requirements into account and can also design tailor-made packages with your requirements in mind.  We can also arrange your other activities during your stay in South Africa, including game fishing, tours to Cape Town, the Garden Route, the Wine Route, Addo Elephant Park, golf or a Township Tour.

At Huntershill Safaris we specialize in making your hunting Safari an experience of a lifetime. Our Safaris are led by experienced professional hunters and trackers who conduct both rifle and bow hunting safaris, and are committed to animal conservation, fair chase hunting and giving our guests a thrilling experience to make your hunt a memorable one.

Our wide-ranging hunting properties offer a large selection of plains game and other animals. We guarantee to provide you excellent opportunities to shoot top quality trophies. All trophies hunted at Huntershill Safaris are of a high standard. Eastern Cape game farms tend to be larger and more diverse than game farms further north in Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces.  This means a greater diversity of terrains and species. 

Due to the cold and snow in winter we have no ticks and other disease bearing insects, so our game is healthy and a wide variety of species and excellent specimens can be hunted.  The large area means that game does not become habituated to humans, which makes your hunt more challenging and satisfying.

Huntershill is owner managed and run.  This hands-on approach means that there is always one of the owners on site to welcome guests and ensure that every stay is enjoyable and that high standards are maintained.

The Wildschutsberg Game Farm is run on highly ethical grounds and has a total commitment to conservation and sustainability.  We have ongoing breeding programmes and are proud to have grown the numbers and quality of all our species since the farm was first established in 2000.  We have expanded the size of the farm and have reclaimed large areas which have previously been barren or overgrazed by domestic animals.  We now have herds of buck that are extinct in their native habitats.

Huntershill Safaris was designed as a home away from home. You can feel the peace and tranquillity the moment you arrive. Lots may have changed since Hemingway’s impressive big game hunting colonial Africa of the 1930’s but the thrill still remains in the modern safari experience, and we at Huntershill Safaris strive to give our clients the hunting experience of a lifetime.  The fact that 97% of our international hunters return, sometimes with their families, is a testament to the wonderful experience to be enjoyed at Huntershill.
