NextHunt Review – Cheetah Safaris
The NextHunt team recently visited Cheetah Safaris near Sentrum in Limpopo.
We were received by farm manager Robert Robberts, who’s been helping farm owners Pieter and Carina Bothma for nearly a decade.
The main camp reminds one of an impenetrable fortress, with electric fences and large gates leading into a large and beautiful inner base with lush lawns and a swimming pool. Accommodation is luxurious with impressive en-suite plumbing. All rooms have insect screens, air conditioning and firm mattresses resulting in a good night’s sleep. The rooms can accommodate up to 28 people per night, although the lounge, bar and kitchen is built to serve 2-3 times that number.
The slaughtering room is part of the camp, which enables a lively and interactive participation from all guests while relaxing after the day’s hunt to compare and see whose is bigger. Yes, size does matter.
Cheetah Safaris will henceforth also be doing meat processing, which is very convenient and often more affordable than taking everything back to the city first.
The terrain is mostly flat with an uphill slope towards the farm’s top corner where the vegetation also changes somewhat. There is an abundance of game and hunters should not struggle too much to find their quarry.
Focussing predominantly on international guests, the farm has allocated few dates for local hunters for 2019, with significantly reduced rates for biltong hunters.
Cheetah Safaris is now a NextHunt recommended farm.
