Game Breeding

“PEDIGREE THROUGH SUPERIOR GENETICS”

Over a 25 year period Hans Jeurissen has introduced herds of top quality specialized game to the farm: original Percy Fyfe Roan, free-roaming pure Matetsi Sable from Atherstone Nature Reserve, and the unrivalled bloodlines of Thaba Tholo and Tembani Zambian Sable as well as Madikwe Buffalo.

Together with the participation and influence of his children, Hans and his team at Silent Valley have progressed to an optimum functioning system of intensively managed camps, stringent control of all farming operations and meticulous record keeping. The initial investment has grown to a stock holding of over 250 individual Sables and nearly 100 Buffalos, along with countless colour variant antelope and other species of rare game.
