The area is steeped in history, has a rich cultural heritage and is blessed with magnificent landscapes. It offers you an experience where the spirit of adventure is still to be had for hunters, the avid photographer and eco-tourist alike!


homeThe primary objective at Hard Rock Ranch, other than offering you an unforgettable experience, is to manage and conserve this unique eco-system using sound ecological principles including sustainable utilisation.

The topography of the ranch is generally flat and interspersed with shallow depressions or pans. These pans are concentration points for the game due to the presence of mineral deposits and sweet short grass species. Naturally, these are hotspots for us to locate various game species.

The diversity in grass, shrub and tree species make this area a paradise for maintaining sustainable herds of numerous antelope species. These include, amongst others, Impala, Kudu, Red Lechwe, Waterbuck, Common Reedbuck, Tsessebe, Sable, Buffalo, White Rhino and Giraffe.
