Valley Bushveld Safaris

About Us

Your Hosts

Kerneels and Vanessa Scholtz, assisted by their qualified, professional and experienced guides and staff, will make your South African hunting safari a memorable experience.


Kerneels has 40 years hunting experience in South Africa, from the open Kalahari plains in the north, to the highest specie diversity area, the Eastern Cape in Southern Africa.

At day’s end, your hosts will enjoy drinks with you at the rustic bar, sharing and absorbing tales of the experiences, mysteries and riches of the African bushveld.

We cater for any type of group, including wives and children.

Kerneels was 6 years old when he shot his first Kudu, so he knows what it feels like for youngsters to get their first animal.

We pride ourselves in the effort we put in to help youngsters get their first animal when hunting game with us.
Be assured that your safety and comfort are our greatest concern.

Eastern Cape Climate

The Eastern Cape climate varies as its topography, with most of its rainfall during the hot summer months, from October through to March, with temperatures ranging from 24 to 35 Degrees Celsius (75 to 95 ºF).

The winter months, from April to September, are usually cold to warm with crisp, clear skies during the day, ensuring ideal hunting conditions. In winter the temperatures range from 5 to 25 Degrees Celsius (59 to 77 ºF). Clear skies usually prevail, with crisp cool mornings and chilly evenings.


Clothes should be of a neutral colour, either khaki or green. A windproof jacket is also recommended as well as a warm sweater. A good pair of walking/hiking boots, that have been worn prior to your Safari, and a cap or hat. A warm jacket for cold mornings and late afternoons.

Short pants and t-shirts are recommended during summer (November – April) and a factor 30 sun cream is recommended during this time.
