Frontier Safaris South Africa


The owner says

Barry Burchell’s family arrived in southern Africa in the early 18th Century…both Burchell’s zebra and Burchell’s sand grouse are named for one of his ancestors. Today he and his family conduct Frontier Safaris on two huge contiguous properties, one in South Africa’s Eastern Cape, the other in southern Namibia…both managed exclusively for wildlife, and holding a wide variety of game in amazing numbers. His camps are comfortable and scenic, combining a “room with a view” and a great campfire boma, and his PHs and staff are first class!


About

Location: We are a hunting company based in Alicedale offering big game hunts in South Africa and Namibia.

About your host at Frontier Safaris South Africa: Barry Burchell, Owner. If you can find another outfitter and advertised rate, who has better value for money on my South African and Namibian plains game packages and beats me on the following:

  • Size and diversity of privately owned land, diversity of animal species, quality and quantity of trophy animals taken each season, quality of lodging, quality of food, quality of professional hunters, quality and friendliness of staff, quality of trophy care, quality of in-house taxidermy, and turnaround time in shipping trophies back to clients.

I own 3 magnificent private hunting ranches which have a hunting surface area of over 200,000 acres, and is home to 50,000 animals. If you can find another hunting outfitter who can beat me on the above points I will give you a free hunt.

­­­­­­Hunting experience at Frontier Safaris South Africa: “Hebron”, is the first farm which makes up Burchell Game Reserve. It was bought by the family in 1987. At that stage Barry was still in school. He always loved this part of the world and saw the potential then and today this area is the premier game area of Southern Africa. In 1990 Barry took over the control of Hebron Farm from his family. He then started building Masada Lodge in 1995. It took a total of nine months to complete. Everything was done by hand. It took about 36,000 man hours, 96 tons of cement, 384 tons of sand, 1,536 tons of stone, 36 tons of timber and 80 tons of thatching grass (ten tons per room and 40 tons for the dining). Today Hebron makes up of about 15% of Burchell Game Reserve. Every year we re-introduced a couple of new species of game. Today we have about 30 different species on Burchell Game Reserve. Every year we do bring in more game animals to increase our breeding herd and also to get new blood and genes into our herds. On Burchell Game Reserve, game animals do exceptionally well and grow good horn lengths and they increase in numbers very well.There is no internal fences on Burchell Game Reserve.
