Crystal Creek Bow Hunting

Crystal Creek Bow Hunting is part of a private game reserve conservancy which is nestled in the unique mountain valleys on the border of South Africa’s Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces. The reserve spans 2,500 hectares of unspoilt open highveld grass plains, mountainous habitats, bushveld creeks and river ravines, making it the ideal environment for diverse game and bird species.

Crystal Creek is a Malaria-free area and a mere 3,5 hours drive from O.R Tambo International Airport. You can also fly in via airplane or helicopter and we will collect you from the 1km private airstrip. The airfield is unmanned, and wild animals may roam freely on the runway. At Crystal Creek we are well aware of the legacy bestowed upon us and thus our focus is on proper game management and the protection of our biodiversity as we aim to preserve the pristine beauty of nature for future generations. Therefore, we exclusively permit bow hunting thus minimizing the stress on our wildlife. We take pride in our abundance of game which often leaves hunters spoilt for choice when deciding which trophy to hunt.
