Braeside Hunting Safaris in South Africa promises an exceptional plains game hunting safari experience. Family owned and managed, we have extensive knowledge in the hunting and hospitality fields. Having followed my hunting passion and guided Hunting Safaris for over 25 years, I can only promise to help make this a trip of a life time! Fluent in the locally spoken languages helps to ensure a high level of service too.

We only take one hunter or hunting group at a time offering you our personal attention throughout your hunting safari with us. You will be met at the airport in either Port Elizabeth or East London and will be accompanied to your hunting destination. Your Safari will be based in the Eastern Cape, South Africa which is home to in excess of 30 species of game. The uniqueness and beauty of our hunting concessions make each day a new and exciting experience.

Braeside Hunting Safaris South Africa has access to 100 000 acres of hunting properties and concessions offering a wide variety of terrain teaming with plains game. The area is notorious for the Grey Rhebuck, locally known as the Vaal Rhebuck or Vaalribbok in Afrikaans. It is a species of Antelope endemic to South Africa, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and Swaziland. The Vaal Rhebuck is perhaps the most challenging South African antelope to hunt, a splendid game animal that is not found in all collections. We have reason to boast about the excellent Vaal Rhebuck trophies taken in our area.


The surrounding mountains envelop the lodge along the river, giving you a feeling of total remoteness and tranquillity. Thus the meaning of Braeside – “a hillside along the river”. Our Hunters and Guests enjoy meals that are served either at the barbeque area along the river, or the open barbeque area under the clear African skies or more formally inside next to a log fire.
