Fijnbos Safaris is a 1200 hA game farm situated 8km outside Hopefield in the Western Cape. The farm has a main house that is rented out to guests for a break-away from the city. The farm is also equipped with a camping and BOMA area that will be the central building for the adventure camps. The farm is a family run business. The adventure camp is the latest project that has been implemented on the farm with the focus of giving young adults a great adventure in which they can meet new people and have some unique outdoor fun.
The adventure camp has been designed with the purpose of getting children in touch with nature and giving them an adventure that they will not forget, all in a safe environment. The camp activities are meticulously thought out to encourage your child to interact with new friends, learn new skills and realise their potential. We endeavour to create an environment where your child can feel safe to try new things which stimulates self-growth.
Ultimately the purpose of the camp is to give your child an adventure that he will not forget, an adventure that will hopefully play a small part in their growth into a young adult.
the camp leaders
My name is Nico Loots, I am 28 years old and I am extremely excited to be part of the adventure camps.
I am motivated to provide a safe environment in which the children can interact with nature and learn new skills that seems to be lost in the youth today. I have had many conversations with parents that have said it concerns then how their children do not get to experience the outdoors/nature.
I grew up doing Voortrekkers, for those who don't know the organisation it is similar to boy scouts, and it allowed me to go on numerous camps that were so much fun and taught me so many skills that I believe I sill use at present. Camps such as these grow a young man's confidence, communication skills and so much more that assist the development into adulthood.
My name is Migael Loots, I am a 24-year old Professional Hunter. I grew up as a Voortrekker which means that I grew up loving the outdoors and camping. I have a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Sciences from the University of Pretoria. I am passionate about teaching kids about the outdoors and wildlife the same way I was taught.

"Liewe Oom Nico en Michael
Ek het baie van die lantern bekruip gehou en toe ons gaan stap het in die bosse.
Van die vuur maak "challenge" dat ek saam met my vriende en ander vriende kon die naweek geniet het in die vakansie by die jag kamp.
Ek het baie van die potjie kos gehou wat ons self moes maak en toe ons ook die "challenges" by die bloekombome gedoen het. Die kos is baie lekker wat ons ook gekry het, mis dit.
Ek het baie van die slaap plek gehou in die tent, en toe ons laat gaan slaap het in die aande.
Toe ons om die kamp vuur gesit het en spelejties gespeel het, dit was so lekker gewees.
Ek het vreeslik baie van die "target practise" gehou.
Ek het baie van die "game drive" gehou en ook al die inligting wat Oom ons geleer het oor die wild en plante.
Ek kan nie wag vir die volgende jag kamp nie, want dan is ek ouer en kan iets skiet.
