NextHunt Review

The NextHunt team visited Matla Phofu Game Farm and can attest to the farm's beauty and charm.

Kallie and Melinda Venter have been living at Matla Phofu for 17 years and have turned this farm, on the banks of the Matlabas river, into something special.

Located mid-way between Lephalale (Ellisras) and Thabazimbi, some 280km from Pretoria, this 1200ha game farm is so much more than just a place to shoot for the pot. With its big lawn, swimming pool (heated and regular), kitchen and elegant rooms, families and corporate groups are also welcome. Its beautiful bar, jacuzzi and fire pit is a great place to wind down after a successful day's walk and stalk or hunting from one of the many blinds.

Don't be fooled; just because there is plentiful game, do not expect an easy hunt as you will have to work for your quarry by navigating through the trees and sand and try to outsmart the vigilant animals. Impala, Blue wildebeest and Monkeys are everywhere, but you will also find your Eland and Kudu if you look very closely.

The bow hunters have a few hides to choose from, among others a 2- and 3-story elevated blind.
Non-hunters can bring their fish and tackle and set up next to the dam or read their favourite book back at the lodge.

Matla Phofu has without a doubt been one of the nicest farms we have been to and can assure anyone planning to book their next hunt, that they won't be disappointed. Matla Phofu is a NextHunt recommended farm.

Client Review

Hello Kallie en Melinda,
Baie dankie vir die voorreg dat ons as familie groep daar kon kom jag.
Dankie vir die manier hoe julle almal se slaap plek gereel het, tenspyte van die fyt dat ons getalle meer was as wat julle adverteer.
Almal het die jag baie geniet, en dit was lekker om die manne weer te laat werk vir hulle diere. ‘n Regte bosveld jag, soos dit moet wees!
Die klompie wat wou kla oor die stap, sand of moeilik jag, het beslis vergeet waaroor jag gaan! (te gewoond geraak aan bakkie skiet!!)
Ek hoop julle sluit nou amper die seisoen af en rus voor volgende jaar se jag!
Hoop dit reen ook vroeer as later by julle!
Jagters groete
Danie Mouton,

Thank you Kallie & Melinda for an exception hunt. Your farm is so beautiful and diverse. Your lodge is absolutely amazing and your staff even more so! We’ve visited many hunting farms over the years and your lodge is amongst the top 5 lodges we’ve seen to thus far. Matla Phofu Game Farm is an undiscovered gem for local hunters. With your lodge being situated on the bed of the Matlabas River, we would like to come visit you in the summer for a weekend break-away.
Thank you again for your hospitality and making us feel right at home.  
We look forward to seeing you next year!

Got my first Kudu bull on a hunt two weeks ago between Thabazimbi and Ellisras at Matla Phofu Game Farm. What an experience to hunt with uncle Kallie on his gorgeous farm. I can recommend this farm to any avid hunter. It has 5 star facilities with plentiful game to hunt. To the non-hunters, the scenery, pool, jacuzzi and other activities will keep you entertained all day long. You will definitely see us next year!!
