Vaalkrans Game Farm is based in the Northern Free State. It is a top class and well known farm – with easy access from Gauteng (1 hour 45 minutes from Johannesburg), Northern Natal, and Mpumalanga.
The Hunters Camp is recently built, and provides accommodation for 4 hunters. It gives hunters access to a newly built kitchen, warm showers and a Boma braai area – all with an exquisite view over Vegkop.
The Hunters Camp is self-catering, and serviced/ cleaned every morning. Hunting can only take place with the accompaniment of the Owner and the farm Land Rover.
In between hunts, game viewing on this working breeding farm is part of the menu.
Vaalkrans Game Farm welcomes you to our beautiful game farm – and wishes you an enjoyable and successful hunting experience.

NextHunt Review
The NextHunt team recently visited Paul & Colleen on their farm, Vaalkrans. Vaalkrans is located on the R34 outside Heilbron towards Edenville in the Free State. A mere 90 minutes drive from Sandton lands one at an exquisite game lodge on a "bushveld type" farm on the Free State plains.

Paul is a game breeder with a soft spot for Nyalas and an understanding of game ranching. His animals are therefore in top shape and the numbers in equilibrium with the field. There was no shortage of Nyalas (don't shoot them or there'll be trouble!), Springbuck, Tsessebes, Sable, Bontebok, Blesbuck (in a separate camp to the Bontebok) and Reedbuck. From the lodge and deck's amazing vantage points, you can spot the three giraffes almost any time of the day.

Vaalkrans hasn't experienced much hunting though. Paul opened the farm to hunting only last year (2018) and has only had four hunts since. The animals are therefore still calm and relaxed at the site of humans, which makes for realitively easy hunting. Hunting is primarily done on foot, with a bow or a rifle with a silencer.

The Lodge is truly splendid with four rooms, all en-suite. Three of the rooms have double beds and the fourth room has two single beds.
All rooms have ceiling fans, operated by remote control.

Colleen has an eye for style, with small but tasteful touches to make the stay more special. The beds all have new firm mattresses, the duvets are thick to keep out the freezing winter's chill and fresh white towels are provided frequently.
Next to the lodge is the deck overlooking the farm, with a swimming pool, bar area, kitchen, bathrooms and a boma built to contain heat and minimise wind disturbance.
The Hunter's lodge is located a mere 300m from the main lodge with two bedrooms both sleeping two persons each. The kitchen, bathrooms and boma is located 20m away so as not to disturb weary hunters looking for some shut-eye.
The entire farm is fenced with electric fencing, which gives one a sense of safety.

Paul & Colleen are amazing people that make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive 'til the moment you wave goodbye.
This has been one of our favourite farmstays and makes Vaalkrans a NextHunt Recommended Farm.
