We pride ourselves on offering an environmentally conscious safari experience that is bound to have you coming back for more. A mere 4 hour drive from Cape Town International airport and 1 hour from George airport, Swartberg Safaris is home to the largest outfitters in the Western Cape.
We offer over 40 species of free roaming wild game in a malaria free wilderness spanning thousands of acres. Due to the sheer size of our property (and those surrounding us) prepare yourself to hunt in valleys, grasslands, rolling hills and steep mountain gorges.

Our world class professional hunters guarantee your best possible chance of tracking and bagging your dream trophy.
