Specialist game breeders in South Africa
Van der Westhuizen Estates (Pty) Ltd, “Westhuizen Estates” was established in 1962. During the first 30 years of the company’s existence, it focused mainly on sheep breeding and farming and became the industry leader and the biggest private held operation of its sort in South Africa. In the early nineties, the company decided to shift the core business focus to game breeding, applying their expertise in genetics gained over the years into the breeding of game.

Westhuizen Estates also has a concession in the Matlabas Reserve. We breed a variety species but we are best known for our Roan Antelope, Blue Wildebeest, Lechwe and Sable Antelope.
