Musina is the most northerly town in South Africa & is close to the Great North road
& the border post to Zimbabwe & thus, the rest of Africa! The rich copper fields
in the North Country ultimately led to the founding & growth of Musina (then called
Messina - the Afrikaans spelling).
In Prehistoric times the Musina tribe discovered the copper and called it 'musina',
in their language this word meant 'spoiler'. The Musina tribe knew copper in the

20th Century by prospectors. Today Musina, South Africa is the centre of a large

Welcome to Old Rock Safaris!
For a great hunting and nature experience book with us!!
We are situated in the Limpopo Province, South Africa, close to the town of Musina
(Messina). Some of our farms have been in our family for 3 generations. We know this
region, it's people, animals & plants very well.
In an effort to better the lives of everyone involved on the farms as well as the
conservation of nature as a whole, hunting and tourism forms an integral part of
our vision for this region.
More than 7000 hectares of land is currently in our possession with other concessions
available as well. The farms are situated on both sides of the Sand River. Some of
the oldest exposed rock formations namely Sand River gneiss lie exposed in this river
bed - hence the name Old Rock Safaris. The farm borders on the south side of the
Musina Nature Reserve which is a Baobab conservation area that specialises in the
breeding of sable antelope and nyala.
The farms offer great panoramic views in all directions of the bushveld. A wide range
of wildlife, birdlife and plants are in abundance.
You can expect to hunt for a good quality representation of the species available
on different terrain from hills to flat ground and riverbeds. Our aim is to make
the hunts accessible and enjoyable to all fitness and experience levels ranging from
novice to experienced hunters.
We would like to promote and cultivate a holistic approach to hunting and nature.
So you don’t need to fear that it is only for the brave and ruthless. We will try
to ease you into the experience if you feel that you lack some and/or need more confidence.
But we will also guarantee that the more experienced hunters will definitely have
a unique and thrilling hunt as well.
Non-hunters, you will not be bored or feel left out. You are more than welcome to
accompany the hunters as observers. For those who do not wish to partake in the hunt
or relax in and around the camp , day trips can be arranged to various points of
interest such as shopping, golf, visit to a day spa or a day trips to the Kruger
National Park or Mapungubwe World Heritage site. Your wish is our command.
