HartzView Hunting Safaris is a family-run operation, which prides itself on an exceptional love and passion for nature, hunting and conservation. The privately-owned, family-friendly hunting ranch is in a malaria-free area. It nestles between the Marokane hills of the Northwest Province, west of Vryburg, and is approximately 110 miles from Kimberley.
We are proud to offer fair-chase hunts on our 20 000-acre game ranch. Our ranch has diverse environments, from savanna grasslands to thickets and rocky hills. Providing some of the best quality trophy plains game and Cape buffalo, it is also home to 30 different species including sable, kudu, eland, gemsbok and waterbuck of exceptional quality. Rifle, handgun and bow hunting is available throughout the year, with nine permanent blinds.
A qualified professional hunter, with a fully-equipped, well-maintained safari vehicle, will be assigned to you, as well as the services of experienced trackers and skinners to ensure that all trophies are attended to.
Our team is dedicated to ensuring you enjoy an unforgettable safari in Africa. From the handling of your request by the office staff to the PH and trackers, we are all committed to providing clients with a first-rate experience. We have over the years successfully hosted a great number of clients and can offer references of clients in numerous countries who have hunted in Africa with us.
Our facilities include luxurious accommodation in thatched-roofed, en-suite chalets. The chalets are spacious, air-conditioned and serviced daily.
You will be able to relax after a day of hunting next to a roaring fire, enjoying the open air and listening to the night-time sounds of Africa. During the day, your family can relax next to the swimming pool, enjoy a game of billiards or bird watching, with over 200 species documented. With HartzView Hunting Safaris you will enjoy mesmerizing sunsets and spectacular views from the hill tops.
Meals are prepared with African flair by our in-house chef and can be enjoyed with a variety of world-renowned South African wines, as well as local beers and a variety of soft drinks.
Founder Braam van Greuning had the vision to incorporate sustainable hunting to ensure the conservation of the wildlife on his ranch. HartzView Hunting Safaris was established in 2010 after approximately 13 years of wildlife and environmental rehabilitation and has since been conducting quality hunting safaris at reasonable prices. Today Ruan van Greuning is the proud owner and lead professional hunter of HartzView and has been following in his father’s footsteps to preserve this beautiful ranch. They are also actively involved in other conservation and community projects on their other concession based in the heart of the Kalahari.
The HartzView experience is like no other. It may be due to the people … or the land … or the camaraderie around a crackling campfire … or the PH and the trackers, who started out as strangers, but whom you leave as friends. Or it may be the abundance of game and the sheer variety on offer.
We are committed to honesty, integrity and ensuring client satisfaction at all times. Your custom safari awaits you!! ASM
