Our Story

From humble beginnings we have, over the years, fashioned a legendary reputation as pioneers in the South African game and hunting industry. Coenraad Vermaak Safaris (CVS) has been operating professionally for almost 50 years making us the oldest safari company in South Africa.

A Family History

The Vermaak family settled in South Africa in 1672 and very quickly developed a passion for the great outdoors. They were hunters and keen outdoorsmen and because they ensured that these traditions were passed on to future generations, we can proudly say that almost 350 years on the Vermaak hunting legacy continues!

``You don't get to be the best by being the oldest; You get to be the oldest by being the best!``

CVS has a small, effective team that takes care of every detail of your safari. CVS only contracts the best and most experienced Professional Hunters – all of whom have a minimum of 10 years’ experience as full time guides. Our PHs, headed up by Senior PH Clive Curtis, are more than hunters – they are knowledgeable about all fauna and flora, they are passionate about what they do and spending time with them in the field is informative, fun and rewarding. Our trackers are highly skilled and dedicated gentlemen. They were the first trackers in South Africa to be recognized as full field members of PHASA – a testimony to their skills and professionalism.
