About Us

The owners, Abel and Karen Erasmus, are well-known conservationists and breeders of rare game species. Abel is a highly respected breeder with a proven track record of more than 26 years. As former owner of Wintershoek Safaris in the Northern Cape, Abel was instrumental in one of the biggest private game relocations when the land was expropriated and sold to the National Parks Board in 2006. 

The National Parks Board has since established the Mokhala National Park on the purchased land. Most of the game at Wintershoek Safaris were relocated to Otterskloof Private Game Reserve.

To accommodate the game and continue with his breeding programmes, Abel acquired land in the Philippolis district and named the newly established reserve Otterskloof Private Game Reserve
