First it was the Bothas. Then came the Van Stadens. Today it’s the Le Rouxes. Since title and deed was registered to Johannes Jurie Botha six generations ago in the year of 1865 the first families packed their wagons and guns and necessities and herded their flock of Afrikaner cattle from the main farm of Elandsfontein in the district of Derby in the Western Transvaal for an adventure packed trip of over hundred miles and a weeks long stay on their Bushveldt farm of Kromdraai to allow the cattle to graze on the sweet and nutritious grass during the harsh winter months. During this time the family had only two responsibilies: guarding their cattle against many a predator like lions and leopards and replenishing their stock of biltong for the months to come. So started an over hundred and fifty years old tradition that’s still practiced by the family.
Today plains game is still abundant and hunting for biltong and meat a way of life although the custom of travelling with the hardy long-horned Afrikaner cattle stopped when the family permanently settled on the farm during the late 1940’s with the first rondavel and house being built and boreholes sunk.
It’s since the year 1998 that the current owner started to cater for the South African biltong hunter and today his son is proceeding with the hunting business.
We cater for the ordinary South African hunter who loves a simple and relaxed hunting environment without the chase and pressure that’s so prevalent today. We still believe in doing hunting the old-fashioned and traditional fair-chase way by foot and relying on the surrounding bush to get as near as possible to the target for the most humane and ethical shot possible.
On top of that we offer a comfortable stay for the tired hunter in which nothing is ever too much trouble for the owner and employees of the farm.
If you just want to relax while providing delicious and healthy meat for house Wolwehok Hunting might be just the place for you.
