THIS IS WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY:  "Hans, I cannot tell you how grateful I am that you provided me with the opportunity to fulfill a boyhood dream. Coenraad Vermaak Safaris goes beyond the norm and that is why people like me keep returning to hunt with you time and again. Clive is special young man. He is always so attentive to what I want - whether we're hunting or simple something I would like. I cannot overlook Patches or Sipho as they add to the complete safari experience as well. If I never hunt again I will always have my Buff in the thick stuff!  Thanks again!  Your grateful client, Terry K."  To view other client comments click here.

Coenraad Vermaak Safaris is the longest established safari company in South Africa. We are pioneers in the safari industry and we have stood the test of time. Join us for a family safari, a Big 5 or classic plains game safari, a non-hunting photographic, bird shooting or fishing safari and experience "that special touch" which only decades of experience can offer. Our passion is providing hunters and their families with safaris that will always exceed their expectations. We have been doing this successfully for 47 years now! Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was our impeccable reputation. CVS takes every aspect of your safari seriously. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, prompt communications and the fact that we have no hidden costs. Long before you embark on a safari with us, the cost of your safari, your itinerary as well as all the relevant details would have been made 100% clear. There will be no surprises. We will tailor make your safari based on your requirements and preferences.

CVS has access to the finest plains game and Big 5 concession areas including the largest privately owned conservation area in South Africa! Offering superb fair-chase hunting of 49 species - from Red Duiker, Bushpig and Nyala on the east coast to spectacular Big 5 species in the north-eastern lowveld, and a splendid array of species from Springbok to Lion in the north western areas of South Africa – you have a number of safari options available. The game is free ranging and the hunting challenging.


Hunting safaris are our livelihood AND OUR PASSION. This is why we take your safari as seriously as you do! We do not have unhappy clients because we always go the extra mile to exceed your expectations. Our references speak for themselves. Our excellent track record and reputation enables us to employ the best people to provide our valued clients with exceptional service delivery in the best areas in South Africa! So, join us for a safari of a lifetime. We look forward to welcoming you.
