The Wild

and Wonderful


At Rooshoek you will find a vast variety of wildlife, with our Buffalo being the pride and joy of our species.

Over the years we have selected animals for our breeding herds on different merits such as horn length and shape, body types, parental genetics and physical attributes. All our game are adapted to the Western Cape climate.

We aim to manage our breeding animals in a manner that generates the least amount of stress because - as in people - stress has an adverse effect on wild animals. We have never used a helicopter to dart animals and we always encourage passive capturing and movement of the game.

Spot our Buffalo, Sable Antelope, Livingstone Eland, Oryx, Springbok, Kudu, Bontebok or Zebra!


Over the years our buffalo was selected from different breeders all over South Africa, based on our preferences towards different attributes of the animals. Our aim is to breed the best quality animals. Currently our benchmark for our Buffalo cows’ horn spread is nothing smaller than 32” RW, and some of the most beautiful buffalo cows from Rooshoek’s herd measure more than 38”.

Rooshoek’s stud started with 44 buffalo that were moved from Limpopo in 2015. Today we have more than 100 buffalo; all adapted to the climate of the Western Cape.

Our breeding bull at the moment is Helios measuring 49.4/8”
