At the luxurious lodges of Wintershoek Safaris, hunters can relax in comfort after an exhilarating day.
The best dining experiences are standard at Wintershoek Safaris lodges and all four of our lodges are 4-star. Here follows some more detail about each lodge:
In the local Khoisan language, ‘thuru’ means to cast off skin, to change into another creature. This is what you will experience while hunting in the breathtakingly beautiful red Kalahari sand dunes of Thuru’s Nama Karoo. You will experience solace for your soul in the warm ambiance of the luxurious Thuru lodge. Thuru lodge specialty lies with the African bush dinner experience between the red Kalahari sand dunes.
Nestled in the Northern Cape Karoo grasslands of South Africa, Karreekloof is a very large, open area ideal for hunting in expansive territories. This vast 112 000 acre space is a newly developed paradise created by the owners of Wintershoek Safaris to ensure a magnificent, responsible hunting experience for all.
The brand new Karreekloof lodge is a superb development that fits right into this historic part of the country that dates back to 1881 when the first trading post was opened here by the pioneering hand of John William Wright.
Winterhoek’s hunting enclave at Linksfontein in the Northern Cape forms part of the unique Ghaap plateau escarpment, known as an area of special interest to researchers of human evolution. This mineral-rich rocky limestone area produces some excellent hunting trophies.
The team at Linksfontein has created no less than 18 blinds that blend perfectly into the natural environment. Archery enthusiasts will be in their element bowhunting a wide variety of indigenous species with superb support from our knowledgeable bowhunting professional hunters at this special place. Linksfontein prides itself on great hospitality and heartwarming food.
Gamagara is situated in the middle of the Green Kalahari, near the small town of Dibeng. Here your hunting experience is guaranteed to start with a sunrise that will lift your soul above the pull of earth’s gravity, while the most majestic African sunset will ease you into a restful sleep at our luxurious lodge, after a most magnificent hunting day.
Our four lodges have been catering for international hunters for many years and take pride in their professional, yet warm service. They love what they do and you can feel it! Facilities at all four lodges are excellent and includes but are not limited to air-conditioning, Wifi, tea and coffee facilities and much more. Each lodge also provides bush dinners and sundowners, depending on your needs. We look forward to welcoming you at Wintershoek.
