Situated on 2,900 ha in Thabazimbi, Limpopo
Lentegeur Wildlife is a beautiful 2900 hectare game farm which is located in the heart of the South African bushveld, near Thabazimbi (Limpopo province). As game breeders we are passionate about our animals and the health of their habitat, a natural balance nurtured by all of our team.
We would love to share this passion with you! Wether you are looking for your next hunting trip, a relaxing stay in one of our camps, or to interact and learn more about the wild, Lentegeur Wildlife is the place for you!
Lentegeur Wildlife was founded in 1997 as a hunting destination for both local and international clients. Lentegeur Wildlife is a proudly family owned and managed company.
The owner, Maurits van de Wetering, is a first generation South African born from Dutch immigrants. He studied engineering, worked at, and later became a share holder of a trailer manufacturing company in Pretoria. In 2001 he bought his first farm and started game farming part time. He bought Lentegeur Wildlife in 2009 and moved with his wife Annemarie and six children to Thabazimbi.
Lentegeur Wildlife management was taken over by Maurits and since then the company started with big changes. The 1800ha farm was cleared of invasive plant species over a period of 5 years. This project has increased the grassing capacity of the farms between 4-8 fold. In 2009 Lentegeur Wildlife also immediately started with building of breeding camps for Sable, Nyala and Buffalo. By September that year the first breeding stock was bought and delivered to Lentegeur Wildlife.
The commercial hunting side of the company temporary stopped after 3 hunting seasons to allow for the expansion for the breeding programs over the initial 1800ha property. In 2015 Lentegeur started looking out for adjacent or nearby land for expansion. A 1100 ha adjacent farm was bought mid 2016 and a new hunting lodge was immediately build and hunting started again in March 2017. The model of having a breeding farm on the one side and a hunting lodge on the adjacent farm proves to be a big success. Book your stay with us to experience game farming first hand.

LENTEGEUR WILDLIFE IS A PROUDLY FAMILY OWNED AND MANAGED COMPANY.
The NextHunt team recently visited Lentegeur Wildlife near Sentrum in Limpopo.
We were shown around by owner Maurits van de Wetering in his 2900 hectare paradise. Maurits has spent 6 years and a lot of money to de-bush half the farm to transform it into the original savannah which it used to be before cattle was introduced close to a century ago.
The animals are evidently very happy with the abundance of grass and in very good condition. Very large herds of Impala dominate the scenery along with many Kudu, Blue wildebeest and Waterbuck.
Although the savannah is beautiful to see and loved by the animals, it will challenge hunters as cover is also limited.
The other part of the farm is still covered by dense bush and large trees. These bushes also contain large amounts of animals and although they may be more difficult to spot, hunting should be easier.
The accommodation at Lentegeur's Monkey Thorn camp is appealing in aesthetics as well as practice. The camp has two dorms with en-suite bathrooms, ceiling fans and air conditioning, sleeping a total of 12 people. A communal kitchen and lapa is situated in-between the dorms. Additional accommodation is available in the farmhouse which is currently being renovated as well as a guest suite close to the main house.
Maurits (jokingly?) guarantees that if you don't have your cross-hairs on an animal within 10 minutes of leaving the camp, that animal is free. It took us 4 minutes.
Lentegeur promises to be an unforgettable hunting trip and is now also a recommended NextHunt destination.
2 - 25 guests can be accommodated.
