Tarentaalrand Safari Lodge is situated on the border of the Free State and Northern Cape provinces, in the Malaria-free Kalahari Thorn veldt of South Africa.

During your visit with us, you will experience this unique part of Africa with all its wonders, peace and tranquillity, just as in historic times.  

Your hosts, Theuns and Erika Cloete, are both qualified Professional Hunters. This means that you can share your dreams about that wonderful trophy with any one of them or if you talk about the hunt, they will both understand the adrenalin that pumps through one's veins when you stalk that magnificent lion, or the satisfaction that one feels when your photograph is taken next to the animal that you have just hunted.

We specialize in Hunting Safaris - Trophy Hunting, Bow Hunting, Cull Hunting and for fun we have our informal (social) bird hunting, which may include a veldt picnic and much laughter. We cater extensively for the foreign market, thus you can be assured of the best quality trophies. We also offer Photographic Safaris where visitors can go on game drives or do hiking through the veldt to go bird watching and experience the untouched African surroundings, fresh air and panoramic views from the small hills and kopjes in the area. Be ready for that unsurpassed sunrise and sunsets with Kimberley’s cityscape on the horizon – only 20 km from the lodge. 

Kimberley is the Diamond City of South Africa, with its world famous Big Hole (largest man-made excavation on earth). Other must-see attractions in and around Kimberley include the McGregor Museum, Wildebeest Kuil Rock Art Site (on the Barkly West road), Magersfontein Battlefield, Mokale National Park, and many others.

Tarentaalrand Safari Lodge also boasts with its own Curio Shop where visitors can purchase that special souvenir as reminder of his/her unique visit to South Africa and one of the best Safari Lodges in the country.

Tarentaalrand Safari Lodge has it all - whether you are looking for the ideal hunting experience, outstanding game and bird watching opportunities or simply need to break away from the stressful city life and enjoy the silence of nature in all its facets. 

Remember - there is only one place that offers you everything - from its hospitality to the perfect closeness to nature all of us are striving for...
