You will hunt at elevations of up to 11 000 feet among sandstone cliffs, a stone's throw away from the picturesque Golden Gate Highlands National Park.
What makes this specific area extremely special when hunting in the Free State is hunting on horseback, just like our forefathers did.

When hunting in the Free State on horseback, hunters' non-hunting counterparts can also accompany them on the thrilling hunt to see what the fuss is all about!
Other species native to the area are springbuck, fallow deer, gemsbuck, zebra, red hartebeest, ostrich, white blesbuck, common reedbuck and much, much more.
