Our Story

In humble thanks giving my family and I would like to share our story with you.

After being in the Engineering business for 30 years in Johannesburg and Vereeniging, we bought our farm Retief, which is nestled between Baltimore and Tolwe in Limpopo, 12 years ago.

Developing this beautiful piece of land into a game farm, mainly used for hunting safaris brought us evenings filled of happy hours around a flickering campfire with national and international hunting clients.

Our approach towards the effort we put in to ensure our clients do not only leave with an experience of warm hospitality, but also with exceptional trophy animals, made us aware of the importance and potential game breeding holds .

With an entrepreneurial spirit in not only me but also my wife Liefie, we tackled this opportunity and started breeding projects whereby we enhanced the genes, to improve on our animals such as: KUDU, IMPALA, BLOU WILDEBEEST, BLESBOK, BUSHBUCK as well most of the other favorite hunting species.

At Woempa hunting safaris we moved client’s expectations to another dimensions. Now clients experience with us a warm welcome and unforgettable stay but also a hunt filled with pleasure and exceptional trophy sizes to take home with.

Our breeding projects grew from one specie to another and soon started intensively, to include the breeding of the more scares type of animals.

Today we have 12 years of experience, sifting and capturing only the best genetics from animals to offer to breeders as well as hunters. Our holistic approach is based on breeding for sustainability thereby serving the industry as a whole namely hunters and breeders.

We are proud and privileged to have the following animals on our farm:
