About

Location: The game farm and hunting lodge is perfectly positioned in a malaria-free zone of Southern Africa. Thorndale Safari is in the heart of the Eastern Cape, 100 km north of Port Elizabeth.

About your host at Thorndale Safari: Jens Heimberg, Owner. Thorndale Hunting Safari was introduced to the international world in 2001 when proud owner, Jens Heimberg purchased the Ranch. Before the 2001 purchase Thorndale farm (as it was known then) held three title deeds and the land was used for sheep and goat farming. The existing  farm was transformed  from  livestock farming to a Hunting Ranch, and today  comprises a total area of just over 5000 hectares (13 000 acres) of pristine hunting terrain. Thorndale Safari is world-renowned for its top quality trophies, which include the East Cape Kudu, Blue Wildebeest, Gemsbuck, Impala and other species. With over 40 species to hunt and more than 2000 antelope on our ranch, game is in abundance and gives the hunter a real African hunting experience at its very best.
