Elite African Safaris is owned and run by professional hunters and outfitter Danie du Preez and Ben Heystek. We have a a passion for hunting, nature and the outdoors. Elite African Safaris operates from Thaba Nkwe Game Lodge, set in the rolling hills just south of Mokopane (Potgietersrus) in the Limpopo Province.
Elite African Safaris invites and welcomes all nature lovers and hunters from all over the world to come and experience really unique safari in Southern Africa. The staff is extremely well trained and promises you a safari you will never forget.
The Mokopane area is ideal for plains game hunting, in addition to this we also have hunting concessions on nearly 50 000 hectares* throughout Southern Africa. The biodiversity of our concessions offers our clients the ideal opportunity to experience hunting in some of the different natural surroundings. The opportunities include (but is not limited to) Lion in the Mopani Woodlands, Springbuck in the Karoo, Oryx in the Kalahari Dessert dunes and Kudu in the Bushveld.
We offer a wide variety of species ranging from Big Five hunts, plains game hunting and rare exotic species to accommodate all your hunting requirements. Southern Africa offers some of the best hunting areas with an extremely wide variety of animals and we certainly aspire to try and accommodate all of your requests. We cater for all types of rifle, bow, and handgun hunters and are also able to arrange for “green hunts” on White Rhino. We also have non-trophy hunts available.
Elite African Safaris can offer you various additional options that makes it increasingly more attractive for hunters to bring, either groups of friends or entire families along for sightseeing trips to places like the, world famous Kruger National Park (less than 3.5 hours by road), various other nearby Nature and Game Reserves, bird watching tours (there are more than 250 different species in the area), hiking trails, game drives and night game drives.
