The Northern Cape

Our dedicated team of Professional Hunters will ensure that you get a true African Safari experience plus take home excellent trophies from our continent.
Newlands camp is located 1 and half hour’s drive from Kimberley Airport in a safe rural environment.

Camp Site

We have converted to a Green Eco-friendly safari camp, which runs on a combination of highly efficient solar power and propane. Water for the camp’s use is pumped from the well daily, and bottled water is also readily available.  Wood for campfires and use in the hot water systems is collected through our ongoing veld management programme. Invader “swarthaak” is cut to open up the savanna for better grass quality. Much needed job opportunities are created with the veld management programme.

The camp has helpful friendly English-speaking camp staff. The kitchen provides 3 delicious meals daily with free range game meat, seasonal fruit and vegetables, all included in your meal plan. Special dietary requirements are catered for. Dinner is served at the campfire or for a more formal setting, in the Lodge. Free Wi-Fi is available for your use.

Lodge Features

The Lodge features very comfortable private thatched chalets, each with its own shower and toilet. Each chalet has twin beds with duck comforters, gun safe, fresh towels and daily laundry and cleaning services. The main living area features a bar, lounge and dining area. At the open fire pit under the stars, we have shared many special moments with great stories and people.

Limpopo Province

The Limpopo is the most northern province of South Africa. The province shares borders with Botswana on the western side, Mozambique in the east and Zimbabwe in the north. Limpopo is a land of beautiful and contrasting landscapes. It is renowned for its hot, yet pleasant summers and dry mild winters.

Winter is a sunny season with crisp, chilly early mornings, dry afternoons and cold nights, which is typical of the interior highveld plateau.

Limpopo accommodates thousands of hunters during the hunting season. A large number of species can be hunted including the Big Five.

Kwazulu-Natal

Kwazulu-Natal is situated on the East Coast of South Africa, south of Mozambique and Swaziland, and east of Lesotho, in the biologically rich zone between the tropical biota to the north and sub-tropical biota to the south. Its major ecosystems include marine coral and rocky reefs, beaches, numerous estuaries and coastal lakes, moist coastal, lowland, and upland grasslands, dry forests and a variety of moist forests depending on altitude, and finally semi-arid savannah systems which contain the mega fauna typical of these habitats in Africa. The climate of Kwazulu-Natal ranges from hot, moist, humid, and sub-tropical on the coastal lowlands in the north-east, to cool and moist temperatures at the top of the Drakensberg Mountains.

Rainfall occurs mainly during the summer months, while snow occurs regularly on the Drakensberg Mountains during winter. Kwazulu-Natal is where the Southern White Rhino was saved from extinction. With the wide range of habitats and eco-systems the number of antelope species occurring in Kwazulu-Natal is high – 21 of the 29 species occurring in South Africa are to be found here. From the elusive Livingston’s Antelope, Red Bush Duiker to the majestic Nyala, the other African savannah species are common. All the large carnivores occur as well as Elephant, both White- and Black Rhino, Burchell’s Zebra, Cape Buffalo, Giraffe, Bush Pig, Warthog and Hippopotamus. Wing shooting proves popular and large numbers of water and ground birds are hunted annually. This is the kingdom of the Zulu’s. Witness the traditional Zulu healer communicating with the spirits.

Eastern Cape

The Malaria Free Eastern Cape offers the hunter an abundance of animals. Temperatures vary greatly in the Eastern Cape. The winter months (May to August) can be very cold with temperatures dropping below freezing point at night, and warm during the day. As many shots are taken at a long range, it is recommended that a medium caliber rifle from approximately 270 to 338 be used. Most Cape species available for hunting like common-, black-, and white springbuck, White Blesbuck, Mountain Reed buck, Vaal Rhebuck, Red Hartebeest, Steen buck, Black Wildebeest, Oryx, Eland, Mt. Zebra, Klipspringer, Cape Kudu.

The Eastern Cape is famous for its beaches, wildlife parks and the incomparable Wild Coast, and then the port of cities of Port Elizabeth and East London.

Mozambique

Previously known as Portuguese East Africa, the country after nearly 20 years of civil war, which ended in 1992, is slowly but surely returning to its old form Portuguese East Africa, in the old days, was well known by Professional hunters and trophy hunters for its good quality trophies from the various concessions.

The concession areas lie in the Sofala province of the Mozambique district. The area consists mainly of savannah field, forest areas and some swamp hunting depending on the amount of rain during the season.

The main river in the area is the Zambezi River that runs for 2700 km through Africa with its source in the western highlands of Zambia . Hunting starts from June to the end of October. Hunting is always done on foot, and the trophies will be retrieved by car. We have access to other concession areas in the same province which can also be hunted. The concession area extends over an area of approximately 300,000 hectares.

Camps, chalets are built of reeds and local building materials. They are spacious and comfortable fitted with beds, linen, pillows, blankets, towels, soap and mosquito nets. Ablutions have hot and cold water, and the cooking is done in a kitchen or on an open fire in the boma.

Trophies

Main trophies to be hunted in the areas are: Leopard, Nyala, Buffalo, Zebra, Suni, Red duiker, Reed buck, Oribi, Warthog, Bush Pig and Baboon.

Leopard trophies are exceptional with a few weighing over 200 pounds. Some buffalo from last season measured from 42” to 46” depending on long and how hard you are prepared to work for your trophy.

Transfers

To get to the concession, one has to fly from Johannesburg to Beira by International airline. From Beira one will travel by car to the area which will take approximately 4-5 hours.
