Wildehondekloof was bought in 1996 as a barren farm without any fencing, roads or infrastructure. The construction of the cold room facility and managers quarters commenced in 2002 and simultaneously the idea of constructing the lodge utilizing the existing building was born. During construction of the lodge it became clear that the current building would not suffice and the planning of the current Wildehondekloof Lodge started, which resulted in the magnificent five en suite air-conditioned roomed lodge. The lodge became a landmark with hunters and nature lovers, both from South Africa and abroad.
In 2005, a breeding herd of seven Eland were purchased, as the first introduced animals delivered to Wildehondekloof. The introduced Eland complimented the existing animals, consisting of Common Rheedbuck, Mountain Rheedbuck, Vaalribbok and Klipspringer. Since then more Eland, Kudu, Gemsbuck, Red Hartebeest, Blue Wildebeest, Black Wildebeest, Nyala, Burchell`s Zebra, Blesbuck, Impala and Springbuck have been introduced.
Despite Wildehondekloof`s success as a hunting destination, the owner has always had a vision to share the Wildehondekloof Private Game Reserve owned and utilized by only a few privileged people.
