Ditholo Safaris was established in 2006 by Ian Tolmay and his father-in-law Jaap Steynberg. Both have always had great interest in the bushveld of Africa. They enjoy hunting and appreciate the beauty and the wildlife of Africa so they deceided to follow their hearts by launching Ditholo Safaris so as to be able to give the modern hunter an experience of a lifetime. The focus is on hunting but also on other pleasures and experiences one seeks when visiting a foreign country.
Ditholo has access to thousands of hectares of wild Africa to make your hunt the most enjoyable ever.
Ian and Jaap have been farming their entire lives, growing corn, wheat and peanuts in South Africa, and also have operated a thriving farm engineering business. In 2004 they sold everything having decided to follow their dreams and go relax in the bushveld of South Africa. A dream became reality and they enjoy the accompanying visitors on their hunts or South African getaways.
We take hunting very seriously since we want each of our guests to feel they have gotten their value for money. It's not about the money or the trophy animal only but it's the special time spent with South Africans - our cuisine, our culture, our history. It's about enjoying nature and exploring the magic of what Africa has to ofer. Ending every day at our firepits, barbequeing and gaining the calmness and strength for the coming day. We strive to make your trip unforgettable because we guarantee you will come back for years to come.
