The Tam’s are a fifth-generation South African family with their ancestors arriving during the late 1800’s. Irvin and Therese, together with their two sons- Peter and Stephen are the proud owners of Tam Safaris. Irvin always dreamed of owning a Game ranch and in 1995 he realized his dream. Irvin invested in 8000 acres and re-introduced wildlife to the over farmed and desolate region. This was an investment made out of the love for wildlife.



The sophisticated elegance of the up-market accommodation, with no luxury or detail spared, creates a unique comfort for hunting clients. The camp includes a landing strip for chartered flights.


After a hard day hunting, hunters are entertained in the magnificently appointed guest lounge.
