We now have a wheel chair friendly lodge which sleeps 4 disabled
people. We have all the proper equipment, facilities and experienced
guides to make sure your stay is comfortable and susessfull.
The Lodge consists of a lapa/kitchen and four fully
furnished chalets, gently sloping entry ramp, convenient low-placed
light switches and a large, specially adapted bathroom with all the
necessary amenities. The rooms are all level with adapted door
widths and bed hights.
We have over 30 000ha in which to hunt in this area. The veld is
varied - rolling hills with deep kloofs, open acacia thornveld and
dense bushveld and patches of open grassland.
Gentle sloping ramps making the lodge totally accesable for wheel
The bathroom is adapted
with rails and support bar, at all the right hight.
The hunters are loaded onto the back of the hunting vehicles
with the aid of either a special lift or a ramp - depending on the
chosen vehicle. Four helpers surround the lift platform at all times
to stabilize the chair and assist in case something should go wrong.
The lift is mostly used for people in heavy electrical wheelchairs
or those who prefer not to use the ramp.
We use different hunting techniques, this is usually
dictated by the level of disability as well as the hunters
Walk and stalk and ambush: The hunter is carried into an ambush position in
the portable chair by the 4 carriers. Due to the nature of the terrain
disabled hunters usually have to make use of the ambush method but,
where possible, 'walk-and-stalk' hunts are also conducted. In the
hunting areas, many ridges overlook kloofs, gulleys and terraces and
when hunters go after kudu, impala, blue wildebeest, mountain reedbuck
or even Warthog, they are carried in the chair along these ridges early
in the morning and/or late in the afternoon. We stop frequently to glass
for game. If the hunter cannot shoot from the spot, we work out an
approach route and 'stalk' (carry him) closer to the animal.
Quad Bike and Blind: We have ATV's which we drive
around the bush, find a suitable site and sit out and wait for a shot.
We also carry portable pop-up blinds that fit around the ATV.

We have always believed that Africa should be experienced as a couple or a family. We have designed our lodges and maintain the private reserves that they are located on with your non hunters in mind. At each of our lodges you will find the highest standards of accommodation and cuisine as well as a good mix of wildlife for the overall African experience. On our properties we have just about every species of African animal right out your front door. This includes rhino, herds of buffalo, leopard and many species of planes game. Game viewing is often best right from the swimming pool! We also have blinds and observation areas set aside for those who whish to do photography and bird watching. The restoration efforts on our properties have led to an abundance of flora and fauna. There is always something going on in the bush! With us non hunters are also always welcome out on the hunt. Remember this is your private hunt with private guide and vehicle. Many of the ladies will accompany us in the bush and become part of the team helping spot animals and recording the hunt on video or in pictures. (Through the years we even have had a number of non hunters take their first animal with us!) We also realize that this may not be for everyone. One great advantage we have is that our lodges are not located hours out in the bush completely away from civilization. While our hunting areas are far away from the towns we are not that far away that we can pop in for a visit! Most of the activities listed below are within an hours drive or less from one of our lodges and they make excellent day trips for the non hunters. We can also organize pre and post hunt itineraries for the entire group such as Cape Town or Victoria Falls and Chobe. Contact us for details.
ADDITIONAL NON-HUNTING ACTIVITIES
Below we have some of the many additional non hunting activities that we offer from our lodges. At many hunting lodges the ladies find themselves isolated out in the country with nothing much to do during the hunting days. This is not the case with us! Our hunting area is unique in that we are not located out in the countryside hours away from towns and civilization. We can offer many activities from classic photo safari to golf and even skydiving! All of this and more can be found a short drive from our lodges. We have always believed that Africa is to be experienced as a family. This is one hunt were the non-hunters have more fun then the hunters! While you are off stalking game your non-hunters will be on the holiday of a lifetime. Below is a short list of possible options. If you have other interests then please let us know and we will design a program just for you!

This is a one day coarse led by fully licensed guide. Project is part of an ongoing study to determine
the forage needs of white rhino, sable antelope and cape buffalo in our local area. Project takes place
on the Glen Boyd Reserve and involves tracking these species in the bush on foot and observing and recording
their preferred diet at different times of the year. These three species are doing well since their introduction
to the Reserve but we need to determine if they can be introduced to other properties. By
studding what they are eating we will know if these plants are available in sufficient quantities in other areas to
sustain populations of these rare animals. This is a full day in the bush with either a bush barbeque or return to
lodge for lunch. (your choice) A good hat and sturdy boots are a must. Cost: $60

I had the best time ever hunting South Africa. Allen is a fantastic PH, I really enjoyed hunting with him. Allen put me on
some fine trophys. Every thing was just as you said it would be. I was treated execptionally well by every one. I love Africa
and can't wait to go back. We hunted hard every day and Allen made sure I took all the game I was after and then some. I can't
say enough about what fantastic PH and host Allen was. When I tell my hunting stories to customers, they want to know who I hunted
with. I am highly recomending you. You should sent me cards and hand outs that you take to shows. I will be glad to send my
customers to you. I just had the best time. I took around 2500 photos.
Thanks Ed, the hunt was outstanding. Here are some photos, I will be happy to send more if you like.
