Wiets Safaris

The owner says

The Ultimate Trophy Hunting Experience: 12 000 acres – 3 000 animals – 36 different species. Your dream Hunting Safari under South African Skies.

Wiets Safari’s operates from the Botes Family Ranch in the Free State and borders the Northern Cape Province.

This Ranch, where you will start your hunting safari, has been in our family for the last 32 years.

The 12 000 acres consist of grassland and “koppies” where 3 000 animals of 27 different species roam.

Wiets Botes, the owner of Wiets Safaris was honored with a gold medal in 1983 as the person who contributed the most toward Fauna and Flora.

The first baby rhino in 100 years in the free state was born on our ranch. We also started a white lion project in 2002.

Accommodation on the ranch consists of a comfortable 4 bedroom house with all the modern amenities such as consumable tap water and electricity.

Laundry is done daily except on Sundays. Therefore you only need 4 sets of bush/safari clothes, casual wear for trips to town, a wide brim hat and comfortable walking/running shoes.

The duration of your hunting safari will depend on the number of trophies and concession areas to be hunted. Each trophy hunting safari is designed to meet the requirements of our client. Hunting Safaris of five days or less will be conducted on one concession. Day of arrival and day of departure will be considered as one hunting day.
