Welcome to Cape Valley Safaris
Cape Valley Safaris, one of South Africa's premier hunting outfitters, is owned and run by Adolf Kleinhans, a professional hunter, and is based between Hankey and Patensie in the malaria-free Eastern Cape.
Adolf learned his trade from his father, the late J.P Kleinhans snr, one of the best-known hunters in South Africa. From him he acquired his love for hunting and his tremendous respect for nature which makes him the quality hunter he is.
There are many professional hunters and outfitters, as well as game farms and lodges in South Africa. But nowhere will you find a team as dedicated to your individual needs and expectations when you become our client. Please feel free to contact one of the references provided; they all started as clients, became repeat customers and ended up as good friends.
Cape Valley Safaris offers:
the Big Five
rifle or bow hunting
hunts for veteran or first-time hunters
fully customised packages available
trophy dipping, packing and shipping to your personal choice of taxidermist anywhere in the world
We accommodate individual hunters or groups of up to seven hunters and/or family members at a time. We do not mix groups. This ensures the requisite personal attention from our team of professional hunters.
Cape Valley Safaris hunts in all of South Africa's provinces as well as in neighboring Namibia and Mozambique. Because we don't restrict ourselves to a single hunting area we can offer our clients the opportunity to hunt more than 30 species in diverse habitats like the Baviaanskloof or Karoo.
You can expect to take home some excellent trophies, wonderful memories and once in a lifetime experiences after a safari with Adolf and his Cape Valley Safaris team.
Our main lodge is an hour's drive from the city of Port Elizabeth.
Shopping trips to Port Elizabeth can be arranged. Shopping is very diverse from handmade African curios to fine designer jewellery. (If you don't bring your wife with you, you can at least spoil her by taking back something nice.)
Other trips to, for example, Cape Town through the Garden Route all along the coast can be arranged after you are done hunting to make a memorable holiday.
If requested, we can even accompany you on your trip to bring our local experience to bear in showing you the sights, such as Table Mountain and some of the most distinguished and historic wine farms.
Clients usually arrive at Johannesburg or Cape Town airports where they can be met and assisted through customs by a representative of Cape Valley Safaris.
From there, they transfer to the beautiful seaside city of Port Elizabeth where they can be met by Adolf in person and taken to Cape Valley Safaris' base.
