Introduction

Qabe Private Safaris and Qoo-oe Lodge is situated in the magnificent Waterberg mountain range (Northern Sotho: Thaba Meetse) in the Northern Limpopo Province of South Africa. The area forms part of the Bushveld district, a landmark well known to hunters over many centuries. The hunting and safari experience in this region is incomparable to any other region in South Africa. Qabe Private Safaris is situated on a privately owned game farm. Hennie Bezuidenhoudt and his family have owned the property since 2008 and are passionate about conservation and breeding animals. Being privately owned, they set their own quotas and are not affected by any hunting bans. 

With its illustrious landscapes of African bush and rolling grasslands, Qabe provides a hunting experience unlike any other. For this very reason, local and international hunters flock to this malaria-free idyll annually, adding to the remarkable eminence of hunting in this area.


The Tambotie River, which is one of the very few sustainable rivers in the area, has its origins on Qabe Game Farm. The farm covers an area of almost 3000 ha and has become home to a wide variety of game species over the centuries, including Sable, Nyala, Wildebeest (Gnu), Kudu, Impala, Waterbuck, Zebra, Giraffe, Eland and plenty of smaller game such as Duiker, Steenbok, Redbuck and Bushbuck. As within any healthy ecosystem, Qabe Game Farm also hosts a variety of predators and scavengers, such as Leopard, Jackal, Baboon and Brown Hyena. The farm has a rich diversity of trees, insects, plants, and birdlife.

Qabe game farm has become known as a bow hunting paradise with state of the art hides, specifically designed for the purpose of providing the hunter with a unique hunting experience. We cater to the sophisticated hunter who is serious about hunting animals within their natural surroundings.
