Our expertise is to create exclusive and unique safaris, professionally assisting you in your most unforgettable hunting experience. Originally a cattle ranch during the 1960’s, we are now a prominent name in the gaming and ranching industry. Located in the Ellisras region, Lephalale, in the Limpopo province, close to Thabazambi and the Waterburg area, creating a wildlife oasis making it a prime hunting ground of South Africa. Just 2.5 hrs from Pretoria, off the N1 highway, the lodge is very easy to reach.We have special hunting permissions with other neighbouring ranches our total hunting area extends over 3000 hectors of typical bushveld area. The terrain makes makes excellent rifle hunting and bow hunting grounds. The ranch is a dream created and managed by Marius Moolman, a professional game hunter since 1980. An exceptional tracker with a vast knowledge of the bush and game, he has studied the age-old natural relationship between predator and prey. He has also had the privilege of hunting the Big 5, is a great host and has a sense of humour that will leave you with a longing to return to Trompettersfontein soon.
Our motto ‘Conservation Through Sustainable Utilisation’ is closely followed. Ours is a self sufficient game ranch with solar energy utilisation, rainwater harvesting and sustainable breeding herds. Though we use the resources available, we make sure never to destroy the integrity of the land. Waste-water is cleaned naturally through oxidization dams. The cleaned water runs back into drainage lines, which ultimately feed underground aquifers, thus creating a full natural water cycle. Fire is a natural part of the ecosystem, control of runaway fires is vital, but correct burning is essential for the long-term health of the natural environment.
