Dries Jr and Dries Visser

Dries Visser Safaris was established in 1990, after Dries Visser Sr had successfully developed one of the most best bowhunting areas in South Africa on his big farm, called Citadel.

Today Dries Visser Jr – who grew up on the Dries Visser Safaris hunting reserve and gained experience from an early age hunting with his father – is the main driving force behind the best bowhunting in South Africa. He is also a highly skilled bowhunter, who strives to ensure that each and every hunter returns home successful in accordance with his well-known motto: dedicated to exceed your expectations.

The goal of Dries Visser Safaris is to offer the best bowhunting experience in South Africa and dedication with the art of bowhunting, with personal care and attention to provide bow hunters with an experience of a lifetime. This is done by hunting the best concessions with high quality trophy animals, in addition to the skill and experience of hand-picked professional hunters in guiding clients to harvest the best trophies.

What our clients say

My wife and I just completed our third trip of a lifetime with Dries Visser Safaris. The accommodations ,food, staff , PH , quantity  and quality of game were up to the excellent standards that we have experienced on each trip. Anyone thinking of going to Africa and who to go with,  I just can’t say enough good things about Dries Visser Safaris. I guess the fact that I have just completed my third trip with them says it all. Just do it!

From the moment I was picked up at the airport until I was dropped back off, Dries Visser Safaris made my dream of an African safari a reality.  The staff is great, the PH’s are fantastic, the trackers are unreal in their skill.  I enjoyed the plains game portion of my hunt with my PH Willem almost as much as the excitement of the archery cape buffalo hunt.  The game was plentiful and trophy class.  Absolutely an outfit to hunt with time and time again.

What an amazing 7 days my daughter and I experienced during our first vacation to South Africa.  The beautiful camp with very friendly staff and PH’s greeted us on arrival.  During our week of hunting my PH, Johan, explained all about the animals we were seeing – the habits, and how to determine a trophy class animal.  The quantity and quality of big game animals surpassed my high expectations. Looking forward to returning for another hunt, this time, bringing my other daughter.

I just returned from my second Safari with DVS. My second experience was even better than my first a feat hard to accomplish! My long time friend/PH Hein and I worked hard day/night to hunt true trophy species on my list. Results were 9 arrows, 9 animals none lost. DVS does everything feasible to make your experience one of a lifetime. From airport pick up to drop off and everything in between, DVS would be tough to beat. Will be back again!

After several years and over 28 days of searching for lion my son and I continued our adventure to the Kalahari Desert.Being used to a long hike, as a result of our previous excursions, we were guilty of not paying as close attention to business. A movement of the bushes and an undeniable growl unmistakably shouted to us “I am here and you are too close”. Fortunately, our opponent was similarly surprised having been awakened from a warming nap. His actions allowed us to calm our trepidation and harvest the majestic creature after a 10 year journey.

Emerson Bloomfield, my good friend and hunting companion, drew back his bow and prepared to shoot a Jackal,shocked to see that that his brand new PSE had come flying apart at the shot.  Thankfully he brought a back up bow,  a 30 year old PSE affectionately known as “Trusty Rusty”.  After a slow start Emerson, William, and Trusty Rusty went on a bender, going on to take 8 one shot kills in 8 straight days.  Every shot was a pass through and half died within sight of the blind. Some of Emerson’s favorites were his zebra, gemsbok, red hartebeest, and nyala.I also had a great hunt and was thrilled to be guided by the world famous Hein Lottering.  Together, Emerson and I harvested 18 animals in 14 days.  What a hunt!  We want to thank Dries Visser Jr. and Dave Kidder for putting this hunt together for us.  I also want to thank Dries Visser Sr. for helping me track down my sable.  What a thrill to see this legend work a  track.
