Smaller carnivores such as caracal and black backed jackal can also be found at Heelbo. For bird lovers we offer guinea fowl, partridges, and a resident pair of secretary birds as well as a variety of water birds and small birds.

Hunting is normally done from the period starting on the 1st of May until the end of July. Hunters are accommodated in luxurious accommodation consisting of a 16 bed lodge with a delightful outside lapa and a separate kitchen.

Heelbo provides full slaughtering facilities, including a cold room. Our experienced staff can assist hunters in preparing their trophies and biltong.

The terrain consists mostly of open grass savanna interspersed with a hill or two. Due to the size of the property (1200 hectares) the hunt remains a challenge but the hunter has a fair change of obtaining his dream trophy.

Non –hunters can go on a hiking trail and will come across curious ground squirrels. A stiff walk will bring you to the top of Perdekop, from where you will have an unsurpassed 360° view of the surrounding countryside, with Rozendal visible to the East and Senekal to the West. Magnificent sunsets can be enjoyed from either the top of Spioenkop or Klein Perdekop.
