This is a therapy that no city dweller or nature lover will want to miss for any reason at all.
Our mission is to strive with goodwill and total commitment to do everything in our power to ensure that the visitors to Badshoek enjoy an unforgettable nature experience, so that they can return to their normal lives psychologically refreshed.
Our Hunting Philosophy
There are many methods of shooting or harvesting game, but there is only one way of hunting. That is when you select your buck and stalk it until you come within a range where you can be fairly certain that you can kill it instantly.
The topography of Badshoek lends itself ideally to this method of hunting, so we strive to create this ideal. As this method requires a fair amount of skill, it also serves to create a much better feeling of achievement with the hunter.
Hunting vehicles and rifles for hire, trained trackers, walkie-talkie radios, well equipped butchery with cooling facilities. Normal skinning, trophy skinning and processing of meat can be arranged.
For the visitor who wants to opt for the soul soothing activity of game viewing there are more than 40 wild animal species that roam around on the property.
Visitors can either use their own vehicles or hire one from the lodge.
Guided day or night game drives can also be arranged.
The typography of the property ranges from low lying savannah veld to very rugged mountains with fynbos and therefore it hosts a wide range of bird life from the timid Fairy fly catcher to the spectacular Black Backed and Martial Eagles.
4x4 trailing and Biking
The property is nestled against and on top of the Nuveld Mountain Range and this provides spectacular gorges and cliffs making it the ideal terrain for hiking, biking or trailing.
Fishing may sound strange in a semi desert region, but Badshoek's "gronddam" contains King Korb and Koi fish for the visitor that wants to opt for the tranquil activity of fishing. There are a wider variety of other fishing possibilities located on neighbouring properties for the serious fisherman.
