Witgatboom reserve offers exclusive hunting opportunities for all plains game species on our pricelist. Both Bow and Crossbow are allowed. Hunting may be done by walk and stalk with our guides or from a hide. Five permanent blinds are available for bow hunting, ranging from elevated to pit blinds. A minimum draw weight of 50lbs is required for plains game hunting in South Africa.
Although the reserve has full exemption to hunt all year, we limit our hunting season from 1 May to 31 August to avoid hunting during the hot summer months and season when young are born.
Hunting is a controlled activity and it is essential to make prior reservations to ensure that the opportunity is not missed.
