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.

“Based on the Lesotho border, the farm has steep inclines and great lookout spots, a true sunset haven.


Bush was a thick which added to the experience.


Jacques is a knowledgeable PH that would stop at nothing to get you, your trophy. The game is plentiful and are in pristine condition.


While the accommodation is luxurious, is has this homely resonance of comfort.”
