Stop #5 of the Limpopo road-trip was Doornrand Hunting Safaris (www.nexthunt.co.za/details/2228) near Swartwater, run by Danie and Louise Krige. As their logo suggests, a beautiful baobab tree welcomes guests to the farm. A friendly white blesbok was also curious as we drove in and greeted us on the way out.
It was evident from the sheer amount of animals running around and their lack of fear, that not a lot of hunting was seen during 2020. This bodes well for the 2021 hunting season. The field was lush after the wonderful rains. We took a break atop a viewing deck in the centre of the 2,500ha farm to look at a herd of impala grazing not too far off. The viewing deck doubles as a sundowner venue where you can light a fire and enjoy a drink.
The lodge was beautiful and well kept and one would not be blamed for thinking you were in a house in Silver Lakes. Each room has airconditioning and an en-suite bathroom. There is a huge lawn for kids to run around, as well as a swimming pool and a boma. One would stay in peace and luxury here.
We thought there was a mistake when we saw the price list... R500 per hunter per night and R300 per non-hunter per night seemed standard, until you hear that VAT is included in all the prices, and that there are no other costs one would usually expect like hunting vehicles, guides, professional hunters, skinning or cooling. Everything is included in the rate.
Doornrand is open for local and international hunters and as such charge a premium for the male and trophy animals. If you're hunting for meat and don't mind hunting the females, then you will find their game prices just as pleasing as the day rates.
Doornrand is a beautiful farm. We look forward to hunting here in the near future. Doornrand is a NextHunt Verified and Recommended Hunting Destination.
