Volharding Game Ranch
The Call Of The African Bush . . .


Our beautiful thatched lapa and barbeque area with well equipped kitchen, embraced by a huge Knob Thorn tree, where many fireside stories have been told, forms the heart of warm bushveld hospitality. Adjacent is a spacious thatched chalet (en-suite), which can accommodate 2 people.
The charming old farmhouse originating from 1922, consisting of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, has been renovated and incorporated with easy access to the lapa. It can accommodate up to 6 adults & 2 children.

We have converted the old "room kamer" (milking room) situated next to the swimming pool , into a luxurious chalet for a couple, with air conditioning , fancy bath, shower and mini fridge. A side door leads the way to a private open air shower.

Additionally, we have renovated the old butchery and outside storeroom, into another large en-suite unit with separate entrance, with the ambiance of a small traditional Venda kraal. It accommodates 2 adults and 1 child.
In conclusion, we can accommodate either up to 10 single persons (hunters with non-hunters) or 6 couples with 3 or more children, depending on age.



We offer hunting opportunities to both Local & International hunters.
