Additional farms

Our primary hunting location is on the Huntershill Lodge on Wildschutsberg Game Farm. However, we also have four additional farms.

 

We use these farms to keep specific game, for breeding programs, and for specific hunting purposes.

 

In this way, we protect our species, and ensure there will always be the right game, at the right time, for you.

Our history

In the early 1800's, the original farm was owned by a British nobleman. It was renamed Wildschutsberg by a later Dutch owner.

The name "Wildschutsberg" means Hunter’s Hill and so the name has been retained.

The current farm has been extended through purchase of nearby farms.

Huntershill is now one of the largest game farms in the Eastern Cape.

Huntershill was established by Greg Harvey in 2000 with just 2,500 hectares.  Now it is 55,000 acres.

Greg has grown the operation and now entertains hunters from all over the world, including the USA, UK, Spain, Denmark, France, Canada, China, Argentina, Russia and Italy.

The Professional Hunters at Huntershill Safaris

Hannes

about huntershills safarisI became a PH in 2016. While I was growing up, I had a passion for hunting as I was a young boy who lived on a farm.

Hunting has taught me so much. It is more than just shooting an animal and making it a career, it is an absolute dream come true. Without hunting there would be no conservation, with no conservation there would no wildlife.

Let Africa live!

Jaco

about huntershill safarisI shot my first Kudu bull when I was 8 years old, I still have the scar to prove it!

I have been a registered PH since 2007 and have been hunting full time since then. I have always love the outdoors and never saw myself in an office environment dealing with paperwork.

My favorite animals to hunt are the spiral horns, especially a big Kudu and bushbuck because they are very secretive and wary.

Jason

about huntershill safarisI started hunting at the young age of 11 and guided my first animal at 13. In 2009 my passion become a reality where I got my PH for big game. I am currently licensed in the Eastern Cape, Western Cape and Zambia.

My favorite animal to hunt is the Vaal Rhebuck and any free range kudu bulls. The tiny 10 also have a special place in my heart, as I believe this is the ultimate list to complete in Africa.

I became a PH because I am a peoples person and nothing brings me more joy than to see a client who has dreamt about his African Safari shoot what has been on his wish list. To me this is the best job in the whole world as nothing can beat sitting around the campfire making plans to what you will do the next day. You can sit the whole night planning all the finer details but everything can change a second the next day when you’re out and nothing brings me more joy. It is the thrill of the unknown that keeps us hunters hooked.

To me hunting is all about conservation, the people we bring together and the people and communities that benefit from hunting is massive. Huntershill strives to sell not only an animal but a whole experience and I am so lucky to be part of that. May I do this until the day I die.

Boyce

about huntershill safarisMyself and my wife are based at Rocklands just outside Fort Beaufort. We absolutely love being in the hospitality industry. I have always wanted to be a PH, I have always loved hunting and in 2005 I finally starting to live my passion. I got my PH license then and have never looked back.

My favorite animal to hunt is a Bushbuck, it is a very shy and elusive animal and it takes lots of time and effort to get a good ram.

Hunting has allowed me to make friends with all sorts of people from around the world, allowing me to make so many connections. Hunting has also allowed me to create a good life for myself and my family.

Johan

about huntershill safarisMy first animal I ever shot was a Kudu on my 7th birthday, from then on you can say the rest is history.

I become a professional hunter in 1996, some might say I did it because of temporary insanity… I often agree. Although with that being said, I love being in the outdoors and meeting new people.

My favorite hunts to go on are Buffalo and Kudu hunts as I find them more thrilling.

Brett

about huntershill safarisI became a PH in 2013, my favorite animal to hunt is a kudu and warthog.

My love for the outdoors and hunting made me pursue my passion as a Professional Hunter.

I am a strong believer in conservation, I am an honorary Ranger at the Lawrence DE Lange Game reserve in Queenstown. By being a Ranger I am able to be very involved in wildlife conservation in our community.

Dylan

about huntershill safarisDylan became a PH in 2009. His Favorite animal to hunt is a Cape Bushbuck because they so elusive. This hunting takes skill and animal understanding. Dylan became a PH about 4 years after his father passed away.

He shot his first animal on Huntershill. It was early winter in 2003 on his 13th birthday.

Dylan said “It was one of the most unique experiences I have ever been apart of, to see the joy on my old man's face and the sense of accomplishment my uncle (Greg) gave me during that moment. I will never I forget it. Every time I lace my boots up before I head into the bush I run through that moment time and time again. So, to share these moments with our clients is something I treasure, but also to know I get to feed my family ethically is also the reason I love hunting.”

Dylan is the proud voice behind PH Journals. Follow his Podcasts on PH Journal on iTunes and other social media platforms.
