Attila Gyimesi from Slovakia with the Caracal he hunted on the last day of his safari.

Gyorgy Gyimesi from Slovakia. He is very happy with this Klipspringer, shot with a .243 at 187 meter.

Reghardt Victor from Bellville, South Africa: “After a long ride and heading back to Bontebok Lodge, we saw 4 kudu bulls running along the opposite side of the valley. We stopped at the perfect spot; I knew that the shot had to be quick and accurate. A couple of seconds later I fired the first shot with my Howa 308 with 155g Hornedy bullets and landed my first Kudu bull at 197 meters. The bull weighed 157kg, with 47 inch horns. What a day! Thanks to the team and uncle Bennie for, once again, a great experience. What a successful hunt during this final trip to Hoeksfontein for 2017!”

Sean Marelich from Johannesburg,South Africa, is very happy with his male ostrich,shot at 305 meter with his 30-06.

Below: Gunther Wurcher from Johannesburg, South Africa with his Springbuck Grand Slam.
He found them all on the same hunting trip.

 

Pietro Grazioli from Brescia, Italy : “We noticed the big male lion several times during the day, running away from us. After a day of hard work, walking and stalking through thick bush and sand and very good tracking by the trackers, we came within shooting distance of the lion. I fired the 375 Bruno, loaded with 270 gr Winchester bullets, at a distance of 30 meters. I hit the lion with two shots. It was a beast of 304 kg. The lion hunt was as exhausting as it was exciting. This hunting safari, to me, was an adrenaline-infused experience of tracking and hunting.”

Dawie Victor from Cape Town (Brackenfell), South Africa: ”My first hunting trip at Hoeksfontein was an unforgettable experience. After landing an Impala ram and a wonderful blue wildebeest bull the first day, I took aim at this Black Springbuck the next day. I used my Tikka 30.06, Together with Lapua shells and Hornedy SST’s it was the perfect combination for a perfect trophy. What an experience! Louis was my PH - he is an expert in his field. Thank you for a great first hunting trip…. See you soon! “

Chris van der Merwe van Bellville, Suid Afrika: “Na ons aankoms op Hoeksfontein en afpak by Bontebok Lodge, gaan skiet ons die gewere in. Daarna gaan ry ons sommer 'n draai deur die veld, net om te verken... Die natuurskoon is mooi, die bosse is ruig. Ons stop en sien 'n trop koedoes teen die oorkantste hang uit hardloop. Ek sien eers net koeie, maar dan sien ons 'n koedoebul staan, net regs van die koeie, reguit na ons en kyk. Ek haal my 30.06 Musgrave Sport oor, gelaai met 180gr Bellingham rondte en kyk deur my Nikon Monarch teleskoop - vas in die groot drie-draai koedoebul. Ek mik doodkalm op sy linkerblad. My geweer is mos netnou ingeskiet... Die skoot knal; ek sien dis raak. Die koeie hardloop af en die bul loop stadig op teen die hang en verdwyn tussen die bosse. Dit is 'n groot bul dié... my eerste koedoe - ‘n 48 duim Oos-Kaap koedoebul.”

Dirk Hanekom lives in Korenhof, South Africa. On his recent hunt at Hoeksfontein Safaris he used 140gr Nosler ammunition in his 7 X 57 Ruger, with which he hunted a fine specimen of 7.5 inch Mountain Reedbuck. He is very happy with a perfect neck shot, taken at 345 meters.

Reghardt Victor from Bellville, South Africa. “As this was my first hunting trip, it is one of those unforgettable experiences that nothing on earth can beat. Each step they gave tips and shared previous experience to make my first hunting trip not only the best, but I have learned so much. This Impala ram was one of those that only pass you once in a lifetime. I took the opportunity at 110 meters with my Howa 308 loaded with Hornady A-Max bullets with Lapua shells and I landed my first trophy Impala ram with 23 inches horns. What a day! What a trip, what a great experience! To everyone at Hoeksfontein SAFARIS ….. Thank you!” I had great professional assistance from my PH, Pieter le Roux.

Peter Holm Jorgensen from Kalundborg, Denmark: "A Dane's Blesbuck"

The story of a Danish journey from the cold north to the warm South Africa to hunt for the first time. "Nature was fantastic and the area with mountains, plains and savannah was indescribably beautiful and very different from Denmark. On the first day of my hunt, I shot the first African animal, an Impala. The first evening in South Africa was quiet and calm; we were tired and looked into the fire - the "Bush-TV" - with a good whiskey in hand.
Owner and PH Bennie and I walked slowly around the open plain. Bennie noticed some small white spots on the slope of the mountain, approximately 1500 meter away. In the binoculars we saw that there were some white and common Blesbuck in the herd. Now that we had found our target, it was time to hunt. A long walk and stalk down and up the mountain was ahead of us. We calmly and quietly approached the area where we thought the animals were moving along while grazing. The closer we came, the slower and quieter we walked. Suddenly I noticed a small white spot in the dense green brush 50 meters away. We stopped; it was the head of a Blesbok looking straight at us. The moment was very intense and my heart rate was very high. I could feel the adrenaline pumping through my body. Bennie put down the shooting stick and, as I aimed my Remington model 700 cal. 300 magnum rifle directly at the Blesbuck, it started moving. We had to move a little bit and found a small opening in the dense vegetation. Approcimately 30 meters away I found the Blesbuck in my scope again. I had a clear shot at the animal's heart and lung area and pulled the trigger. The Blesbuck jumped and ran away when the Titan bullet hit him. We found bright red blood from the animal and followed the spoor. A few meters further we found it dead. It was a beautiful ram - a nice trophy - and I was overjoyed. We took a lot of pictures in order to remember this great adventure. For me it is not only the hunting. It's also about the food. My dad and I were privileged to taste all the animals that we had shot. That, in my opinion, is the way to hunt.
Owner and PH Bennie and your team, Pepe, Jacques and all the others (including the dogs): you, at Hoeksfontein Safaris, helped us find nice trophies and we encountered an event in out lives that I, for one, will never forget. The team delivered the animals we wanted to shoot and we had nothing to complain about. I am very grateful and we all are extremely happy. You have given me an experience of a lifetime, one that will never be forgotten. I hope that some time in the future I shall have the opportunity to return to South Africa and the stunning scenery."

Helge Jørgensen from Kalundborg, Denmark. "We arrived at a fairly flat plateau and saw a big Black Wildebeest bull among a herd of Blesbuck. I took a shot at a distance of about 280 meters with a .308 Musgrave. The shot was not particularly good; I hit the wildebeest, but the bull bolted. The professional team reacted immediately and, along with two dogs, showed it's efficiency. We found the bull about 2 km from where I shot it the first time. This was an amazing experience with a positive ending. The farm is completely unique in a hunting area where you find savannah, high plains and mountains. This requires some skill in terms of both fitness and shooting skills and it enhances the quality of the hunt. My son, Peter and I had an unforgettable experience, which - among other things - is due to an excellent team. Bennie and his spouse, Pepe, are excellent hosts and highly recommended."

Manie Steyn from Johannesburg, South Africa with his 26 inches Nyala bull shot at 95 meters with his 300.

Merrick Flugel from Port Elizabeth, South Africa with his 34 inches Eland bull.


"One of the biggest advantages of being the owner's wife is the fact that you are allowed to shoot the biggest and best animals available. We took a client, Jacques van Heerden from Thabazimbi, South Africa on a fallow deer hunt. Bennie spotted a herd of fallow deer stags. After a stalk of about 10 minutes, Jacques took a shot, using a .308 Musgrave loaded with 165 grain PMP bullets, at a distance of 65 meters. The stag died instantly with a shoulder shot and they made it look so easy."

After he had shot his stag, we spotted a magnificent white fallow deer stag. His back was tan-coloured with white spots. It was the most beautiful fallow deer stag I had ever laid eyes on. In hunting it is a fact that only the most clever and biggest animals grow this tall. This was proven a fact, because my hunt was a real mission. It took us four days to hunt my stag. He was so clever, he only showed himself when there was no chance at all for me to take a shot. We left the farm on the fourth day. Just as I thought this was another unsuccessful hunt, I spotted my stag at a distance of 160 meters. This time I took the shot, using my Remington 300 Winchester Magnum, loaded with 168 grain Titan bullets. I felt a bit disappointed when the animal still managed to run away after I knew for sure that I hit it. We tracked it down with the dogs and found it only a few meters away from where I shot it. It was down with a perfect shoulder shot. As we took pictures, we all realized again how magnificent my fallow deer ram really was."

Danie Colyn from Klerksdorp, South Africa: "Die jag het vroegoggend begin. Ek en pH Jacques het Aasvoelberg uitgeklim op die spore van 'n trop elande. Die styl klim het ongeveer 'n uur geneem. Terwyl ons op 'n plato sit en rus en die uitsig bewonder, hoor ons klippe rol. Toe sien Jacques 'n ongelooflike takbok-ram op 'n afstand van ongeveer 350 meter teen die hang in ons rigting hardloop. Onmiddellik sit ek die .308 Masgrave op die skietstokke. Die ram het steeds nader gehardloop en op ongeveer 150 meter skiet ek hom skuins van voor. Ons loop nader en besef hoe groot die dier werklik is. Toe begin die groot werk. Die ram moet berg-af gedra word. Wat'n grootse ondervinding en belewenis - 'n jag-ervaring wat ek nooit sal vergeet nie!"

Bjarne Petersen from Vojenz, Denmark. “In search of a trophy specimen, we walked and stalked different Letchwe bulls, until Bennie spotted one, lying down a few meters away from the rest of the herd. The herd started running because, at that stage, we were upwind from the animals. We decided to walk around and stalk the herd from a different direction. We followed them for about 800 meters, while the enormous bull was clever enough to keep the females between himself and ourselves. At 180 meters from us, they stopped and started grazing. There was only one small bull between me and my trophy. As soon as the smaller bull moved away, I took the shot. The trophy bull dropped with one perfect shoulder shot. I was using my outfitter's rifle, a Remington 300 Winchester Magnum, loaded with a 168 grain Titan bullet. The picture you see here is proof of my beautiful Lechwe bull trophy.

Johan Wolmarans from Piet Retief, South Africa: “Tydens 'n spanbounaweek was ek saam op ‘n jaggeleendheid by Hoeksfontein Safaris. Ons sien beweging aan die anderkant van ‘n kloof. Dit is ‘n groep Rooi Ribbokke wat kom waterdrink in ‘n gronddam. Terwyl hulle teen die rant uit hardloop, kom 'n Waterbok-bul uitgehardloop. Bennie sê dit is ‘n mooie. Die manier hoe Bennie my verseker het hy is groot, verskil van die ander wat ons vroeër die oggend gesien het. Die bul hardloop verder teen die hang uit, hy draai, ek vra weer vir Bennie en hy verseker my dit is ‘n groot bul. Ek kyk deur my Vortex teleskoop, die bul stop en Bennie bevestig die afstand as 245 meter. Ek druk die sneller van my 308 Howa, gelaai met 180gr PMP koeëls. Die bul loop so twee tree, staan stil, dan val hy agteroor op sy rug, bene in die lug. Hierdie paar sekondes sal my altyd bybly; die bok wat hier uit die bloute kom, die afstand van die skoot, die manier hoe die bok geval het met ‘n perfekte skoot, maar bo en behalwe dit: die uitdra van my 29 duim bul deur die kloof.”

Igino Lemoigne from Parma, Italy. He shot this Sable bull with his 458 Lott, using a 500 grain Swift A-Frame bullet at a distance of 55 meters. The bull went down with one perfect shot.

Pietre Hechter is from Pearston, South Africa.
”At last. This time I was ready for my bush pig hunt. Setting up my 300 Remington Winchester Magnum with night vision optic in the blind, my 9mm pistol for back up and, most importantly, a two way radio to call for help. My heart started pounding when I heard the first sounds from a mile away as the pigs came down the mountain. Walking to the feeding place and eating is not a silent business for bush pigs. With sweaty palms and hands shivering, I aimed at the only bush pig visible. I took it down with one shot and waited for everything to calm down. I was very nervous because a wounded bush pig can be extremely dangerous. While walking back to my Jeep I could hear some movement and noise in the bush behind me. I decided to just go back in the Jeep and make sure the animal was dead. On my arrival at the feeding place I was totally shocked. My bush pig was down and dead, but I found a white sow fighting with it. At a short distance of about 30 meters I decided to shoot the second pig with the 9mm pistol. To my surprise it only took one shot through the vital organs to bring the bush pig down. It definitely was my lucky night. I shot two bush pigs and, using my pistol, I realised how effective the 9mm really is.”

Igino Lemoigne from Parma, Italy, shot this Buffalo bull with his 458 Lott in the heart, using a 500 grain Swift A-Frame bullet at a distance of 75 meters. The bull went down after 60 meters.

Milan Nogy from Slovakia is very happy with his first Africa animal, an Impala ram. He went home with 9 trophy animals. Milan was accompanied by Ph Jaco Pieterse

Jozef Katona from Slovakia shot his White Springbuck ram on the shoulder at 120 meter with a 270 clibre rifle. It fell in its tracks, after being shot behind the shoulder with the 130gr Titan bullet. He had good and exciting hunts , including an Oryx at 200m. It was down after moving 10m, shot just behind the shoulder. His Warthog with a frontal shot from 120m ran for 80m before expiring. An Impala ram, which he shot on the shoulder from 100m was down after 10 meters. Jozef also shot one each of Kudu, White Blesbuck and Cape Springbuck. He was accompanied by pH Niel Pretorius.

Rassie Erasmus from Vereeniging in Gauteng, South Africa. “This was my second visit to Hoeksfontein Safaris in Pearston, Eastern Cape. I was hunting with Bennie van Niekerk, when he spotted some Fallow Deer on the mountain slopes. We immediately got off the vehicle and started the walk-and-stalk up the mountain. Bennie spotted a Fellow Deer Stag in the brush, facing me quartering away to the left. 
I took aim with my 30-06 Winchester model 70, loaded with 180gr Nosler Partition ammunition and took the shot at 256m up hill. The stag jumped, turned around and went down 5 meters further. After a long, steep climb up the mountain I had the privilege of being blessed with a beautiful Fallow Deer Stag, which will definitely become part of my collection of trophies.”

MR: “This has been an amazing Safari. As this was my first time hunting, I had no idea what to expect and it has blown me away. Thank you for making this experience extraordinary. I leave South Africa with a great feeling and want to come back soon. Thank you for teaching me to hunt and making this a trip I will remember for the rest of my life.“

JR: "For many years as a child I had listened to the stories told by my father describing his hunting trips to the African continent. And now, here I was in the Eastern Cape with him and my 17-year-old son. With the sun setting to the west and the almost full moon behind me, the pictures of the moment show three generations of men bonded together in a celebration of life. The passing on of the passion for hunting, from father to son, and from son to grandson. The hours of patient pursuit of the elusive Springbok had culminated in that very moment when I had him in the crosshairs and had experienced the recoil of the .308 rifle. I witnessed through the scope a sudden shudder that shook the animal’s entire body, and how, a second later, he fell inert to the ground. An intense feeling of elation invaded me, I had hunted my first antelope, a beautiful Springbok, the symbol of South Africa. I felt as close to my loved ones as I can be, and although a life had been taken, this loss meant the preservation of the entire species for the future generations to come. A paradox that is not always understood in these times when paused reflection has been abandoned in favor of automatic “liking” or “disliking”, and when individuals rarely have their own meditated opinions anymore, but rather herd themselves into “followers” or “haters” of the deeds of others. I see the smiles in the faces of my father and son, and I feel enormous gratitude and respect for Bennie van Niekerk, his family and all the people who, like him, are the true guardians of the African wildlife. I would like to thank you, Pepe, Louis and Pablo for the wonderful stay the three of us had at Hoeksfontein. We all remember Pepe's great cooking, yours and Pablo's skills as professional hunters, your great sense of humour, and the fantastic atmosphere created by everyone there.” International Wild Hunting Pablo Carol Director info@iwhunting.com

Michael Basson from Cape town, South Africa, with his Blue Wildebeest bull.

Andre van Wyk from Johannesburg, South Africa, with his Gemsbok bull. He spotted it, grazing on a distant ridge. André stalked the animal for 1.5 kilometres and shot it at 80 meter.
"As all hunters know, you always plan a hunting trip, i.e. your budget and what animals you want to hunt that season. But unfortunately you must always remember the "Golden rule - shoot what the veldt offers you." So it was no surprise when on our annual hunting trip to the Eastern Cape, to hunt with my good friend Bennie van Niekerk, owner operator of Hoeksfontein Safaris, my plans took a drastic turn. The plan was to shoot Eland, Kudu's and Fallow deer. One single Oryx bull was on a remote part of the farm and inaccessible by vehicle. I immediately took up the challenge and one morning we decided to travel to that part of the farm. We drove and glassed the mountains and valleys for the Oryx. After a few hours we spotted it where it was grazing on a flat plateau in the mountains, an estimated 1.5km away. Bennie and I started the long and difficult walk and stalk. Bennie read the wind 100% and he managed to take me up to 80m from the Oryx. It was unaware of us, feeding in the bushes. Bennie put the shooting sticks up. I took the shot with my a CZ 550 model 300 Win magnum, but missed! The Oryx started running towards a deep valley and would be out of sight within a few hundred meters. The Oryx suddenly stopped and looked back towards us and in that instant, I took another shot and it dropped in its tracks. What a great relief!! It was a nice old bull and I had a great sense of accomplishment and pride for completing the difficult task we had set out to do that morning. That evening, around the fire, there were long discussions about the day's hunt and I had a very interesting story to tell and obviously to brag about!"

Wessel Kriek from Bellville, South Africa. Wessel is very happy with this fine Lechwe bull he shot with a .308 calibre rifle.

Paul Pretorius from Johannesburg, South Africa. “This year a long standing dream of mine was realised. My son Paul Pretorius hunted with me for the first time in about twenty years. Paul didn’t have plans to hunt any specific species but just wanted to have a good walk and stalk hunt. Early the first morning we drove up into the picturesque mountains of Hoeksfontein, parked the vehicle and started a slow walk with the wind in our faces. We found a grand old white blesbuck ram grazing by himself at about 120 meters from us. For someone who hadn’t aimed a rifle at an animal for twenty years, Paul was quite steady and calm. The precious moment for me was drawn out by our discussion about whether and when he should take the shot and the cost. Paul did everything right and the ram dropped in his tracks. You dads out there know what emotions go through you at times like that. I’m dreaming about our next hunt together.” Neil Pretorius

Hennie de Jager from Beaufort West, South Africa with his 17 inch Blesbuck ram. He shot it at 170 meter with a 30-06, using 150g Nosler Partition ammunition.

Elke blinde of siggestremde kry ‘n beurt om ‘n skoot te skiet om die gevoel van die geweer te ervaar.

Freddie Botha: “ Wie het ooit kon dink dat hierdie wonderlike geleetheid wat vir Worcester se siggestremdes geskep is, na 4 jaar tot so wonderlike naweek sou groei. Vandag kan ons weer dankie se uit die diepte van ons harte vir die inisatief van die Pretorius broers, die wonderlike gasvryheid van Bennie, Pepe, Louis en al hulle helpers en dan ook in besonder vir elke jagter en borg wat gesorg het vir hierdie onvergeetlike ervaring vir ons mense. Dankie vir elkeen wat so uitgereik het na ons mense en met groot liefde en deernis na hulle omgesien het. Ons kan julle versker dat ons viende by Kaleidoskoop vir die week wat kom herhaaldelik sal moet hoor van elke ervaring wat ons hier meegemaak het. Julle is almal vir ons kosbaar en intergraal deel van die familie van siggestremdes by die Kaleidoskoop, voorheen bekend as die Instutuut vir Blindes”.

Chris De Lauwere says: ”It’s was an absolute privilege to be able to spend a few days with such wonderful people, who make the problems of normal, sighted people  seem  totally insignificant. I'm glad to have managed to assist Jacques in shooting two springbuck.

As he touched the animal, he immediately recognized it as the baboon.

Nico Boshoff from Paarl, South Africa. "I shot the Jacob sheep at 120m on a steep downhill. I used my 30/30 Marlin with 150g hollow points with the animal standing at a quartering-away angle. The Jacob sheep went down immediately, got up and gave us a bit of a run-around for about 15 minutes. I think the bullets were a bit too light for the job. We tracked him down, standing on a cliff, bleeding from the wound through the chest. At about 120m I managed to make a clean kill. I knelt next to him with great thanks to our Maker in Heaven. 

"Bennie spotted this 7 inch Mountain Reedbuck and pointed it out to me. I had been looking for this small, but very elusive, animal for quite a while. As soon as he saw us, he lay down in the tall grass, hoping that we wouldn't see him. I took a single shot to the head at 70m with my Blazer R8 Leather 6.5x55, loaded with 165g Federal Shock ammo. This trophy head will have a very special place on my trophy wall. It made me realize how special God made every single animal on earth. The big ones flee over - or through - any obstacle, where-as the small ones try and outsmart or outrun you!!!
Stop and smell the roses please!!!! Don't just shoot because you can, think a bit bigger than yourself or your ego!!"
