NextHunt Review – Beestpoort Hunting Safari’s
Welcome to warthog paradise.
There is absolutely no shortage of game and although the game is managed well in order not to make them too skittish, you should not expect it too easy. As it still hadn’t rained by the end of August, the bush was naturally very brown and in some areas somewhat barren, however the animals didn’t want for grazing and were in very good shape. If you are looking for warthogs, welcome to warthog paradise.
The terrain varies between thick bush, open plains and rocky hills. You soon get a good idea which areas each specie prefers. Some areas on the farm are inaccessible during the rainy months due to the slick turf preventing any but the most foolhardy access. What with 4,300 ha of hunting area (including the Naboomspruit farm), you’ll have plenty of space to find your quarry. The terrain is ideal for walk & stalk hunts, but also allows hunting from 6 hides, one of which is an elevated hide.
Because Beestpoort is made up of five ex-cattle farms, there are still a few areas where the fences haven’t entirely been removed yet. This is more of an aesthetic issue than a practical one, as it doesn’t hinder you or the animals’ movement. They also assists with caping and the delivery of your meat to one of two good butchers in the area.
All in all it was a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend and we look forward to our next hunt at Beestpoort next year.
Beestpoort is now a NextHunt recommended farm.
P.S. We’ve been back to hunt at Beestpoort 4 times since our initial visit and have always had a great time. One of the top farms in our books!
