The Eastern Cape Province boasts large farming and ranch land comprising flat open plains as well as mountainous country reaching 9000 feet above sea level. Over 20 species of game occur – from the elusive Vaal Rhebok and Bontebok to the majestic Eland. Because of the wide open plains, long range shooting is required as well as close “snap” shooting for the Blue Duiker. Hunting the Cape Grysbok occurs at night as they are nocturnal. Because of the varied habitat and size of the areas, one can expect to go out in a different direction each day and great distances may need to be covered by vehicle in order to collect all of the species occurring here. The areas also offers outstanding birdshooting. All visitors must be aware that it can get very cold in winter with occasional snow falls. Accommodation is mostly in old colonial style homesteads where fireplaces come standard as does the fine hospitality the locals are famous for.
