About Us

Fig Tree Safaris was established in 2001 by professional hunter, Johann Gey van Pittius. Johann has been in the hunting business since 1987. He is a member of both the Wild Life Ranching, and the Professional Hunters Associations of South Africa.

Fig Tree Safaris takes pride in offering our clients an unforgettable hunting experience. Johann together with his wife, Robyn, will ensure that your stay is both memorable and enjoyable. Robyn is in charge of meals and she will also ensure that the non-hunting members of your party enjoy their stay.

George Nell is the main Professional Hunter at Fig Tree Safaris and is in charge of all hunting activities. He will endeavor to make every hunt an unforgettable experience. He and his lovely wife, Justine, live on the ranch. Justine is responsible for general administrative aspects and also assists in lodge management and meal planning and preparation. Furthermore, a number of freelance Professional Hunters are employed on a temporary basis, during the hunting season. Supporting staff members, including trackers, skinners, drivers, cooks, and cleaners, are also employed at Fig Tree Safaris.

We are situated in the Limpopo River Valley, 40 km north of Lephalale and 30 km from the Botswana border post.

Fig Tree Safaris takes pride in offering our clients an unforgettable experience.


"I enjoyed my stay at Fig Tree Safaris immensely and will most definitely make this an annual outing.  Their hospitality and skills at tracking and finding game are unmatched, especially with a tracking dog like Yster on their staff! I would recommend a visit there to anyone." 

– Frans le Roux

"As my first hunt off the comfort of our own farm, I didn’t know what to expect when we stepped off the airplane! We were greeted with a smile and welcomed into the family! The food was fantastic, hospitality was out of this world, rooms were private and cozy, the views were mesmerizing and the hunting was beyond exceptional! Every hunt with Fig Tree was beyond our expectations and the animals harvested were quality trophies! Thank you Johann and Robyn, we truly are blessed to have met you!"

- Jason and Joy Melton

"In July of 2018 we had the pleasure of spending two weeks at Fig Tree Safaris, South Africa, hunting and touring the local regions. The hunting and accommodations were absolutely world class. The PH’s knowledge and tracking abilities are amazing. The diversity of wildlife is enormous and beautiful. Thanks to Robyn the food was astounding, I had to get out my bigger jeans when we got home, lol. Thank you for memories, trophies and pictures that will be passed on for generations to come."

- Jim and Nicci Speer
