Ratelfontein Game Reserve

Set in the heart of the Great Karoo lies a the small sheep-farming town of Richmond, home to the Ratelfontein Game Reserve. Ratelfontein is a 13000 hectare game reserve which supports over two thousand head of both indigenous and exotic game. Some of these include rarer species such as the Arabian Oryx, Scimitar-Horned Oryx, Red Lechwe, Indian Black Buck, Sable and the Roan Antelope. The reserve management believe in the preservation of wildlife and the protection of endangered species through the practice of sustainable hunting. There is a resident professional hunter at the reserve to design a hunt specifically for you, taking into account your skill level and endurance as a hunter. The town of Richmond was first established in 1843 and is found in one of the highest and coldest parts of the Karoo, and sometimes receives only 400mm of rain per year. Some of the activities available at Ratelfontein Game Reserve include Bird Watching, Horse Riding, Hiking, Clay Pigeon Shooting and Hunting.

The reserve is home to a wide variety of bird life. The heaviest flying bird in the world, the Cory Bustard, the swift Peregrine Falcon and the majestic Black Eagle are some of the unique birds which can be found in the reserve.
Qualified guides at Ratelfontein will ensure that your walks across the Karoo plains will leave you in awe of its beauty and magnitude, leaving you with memories that you will treasure forever.

Ratelfontein Game Reserve also boasts conference facilities where companies and groups escape the manic city life and just refocus in a place of tranquillity. A perfect place for companies team building getaways. The large library covers topics such as the wildlife on the reserve and also bears references to when the famous heart surgeon Prof. Christiaan Barnard called the reserve his home.

Whether you are keen for the hunt or just looking for somewhere to relax, Ratelfontein Game Reserve has something for you.
