The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa, for he has so much to look forward to - Richard Mullin

When joining Big Game Africa on safari in South Africa you will be introduced to our pristine hunting areas offering you a diversity of landscapes and scenery ranging from Limpopo Valley bushveld and riverines, Mopani forests of the northern lowveld, open savannah plains in the Free State and the world renown Kalahari region.

Each of our hunting areas hosts its own unique echo system ensuring a diversity of wildlife inhabitant to the area. This diversity of hunting areas across South Africa allows for over 40 different huntable species to choose from. 

Our hunting concessions are privately owned game ranches where wildlife management and selective hunting is the main priority which allows wildlife populations to be self sustainable and thriving. This practice of wildlife management and conservation through selective hunting ensures the preservation of  gene pools and subsequent harvesting of top quality trophies yearly. 

Game Reserve

Our privately owned game reserve, Makotile, is situated in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa and is a mere 3 hour drive from OR Tambo International Airport. The reserve is also within a 2 hour drive from the Kruger National Park as well as various other scenic, cultural and heritage attractions to visit on planned day tours. 

Makotile boasts 17 000 acres and has a variety of different eco systems within its boundaries. The terrain ranges from thick riverine sections along an 8 mile steady flowing river which sets the western border of the reserve, creeks and gorges, vast rolling valley's and hills with spontaneous rocky outcrops, mountains with plateaus and open savannah plains which is host to over 30 different huntable species which sets the tone for an unforgettable Safari.

Makotile has its name from the many hills and valley's of this mountainous area, which is also home to some of the largest Kudu found in South Africa. Bushbuck, Nyala and Waterbuck among other is roaming the lengthy riverine sections and is delivering good quality trophies in abundance.

As you traverse through the reserve you will notice the continuous changing landscapes which will give you the feeling of being in different hunting areas simultaneously.
