BE MY GUEST

Welcome to Rio

We hunt from camp every day and offer a wide variety of species on the property which is roughly 6000 acres with 3500 acres high fenced.  The area is located in the Free-State Province of South Africa.  Landscapes are grassy and mountainous with lots of bush cover.  Strictly walk and stalk hunting is done on the property as the animals are habituated to the vehicles for photographic reasons.
