Limpopo Province South Africa

Our Family Estate & Main Lodge

Berchtesgaden, Limpopo, South Africa

Hunters know the Waterberg as the hunting mecca of the world. This UNESCO biosphere reserve is home to the most diverse range of species found on a wide variety of habitats. Locally the Waterberg biosphere is known as “the place where old Africa begins”. West, East and for thousands of kilometers North stretching all the way to the Sahara Desert modern civilization has not had a chance to grab hold and visitors are welcomed to one of the wildest places on earth. Berchtesgaden is located 100km’s North of the Southern border, in the very heart, of the Waterberg biosphere reserve – compeltely surrounded by privately owned game ranches and Big 5 wildlife reserves teaming with wild game. Along with excellent hunting, this area has plenty of activities, sure to keep the loved ones entertained.

Berchtesgaden is our famliy owned estate and serves as our basecamp, and main hunting lodge. This estate is made up of two separated properties, a wildlife ranch & a working farm. This destination is much loved by local & international travellers for its pristine ecosystems, an abundance of wildlife & our sustainable farming methods which all combine to create an out-of-city experience where guests feel at home and get to utilize all our amenities & activities without limits. Our incredibly high client-return-rate is a testament to this amazing African Hideaway.

Although Pioneer hunts all over Southern Africa, we love to make use of our Main Lodge at Berchtesgaden for a couple of reasons. This all-inclusive destination offers our clientele so much more than “just” a hunting ranch. Here, guests can stay entertained with plenty of on-site and surrounding adventures, view the Big 5 at our neighbouring reserve, enjoy great meals and plush accommodations, and of course relax in the comfort of our luxurious oasis in the heart of the Waterberg Bushveld of South Africa.
