I had two days to capture some of the facilities at Otterskloof game reserve near Philippolis bordering the Vanderkloof dam in the Free State province of South Africa. Many Rhino, large herds of roan antelope and Sable antelope greet you within the first 3 kilometers upon entering the gate. As far as I'm concerned the most beautiful  Game reserve in the Free State and one of the most beautiful in the Country. It has a wonderful biodiversity and landscapes uncommon to the Free State. 

The owners, Abel and Karen Erasmus, are well-known conservationists and breeders of rare game species. Abel is a highly respected breeder with a proven track record of more than 20 years.

As former owner of Wintershoek Safaris in the Northern Cape, Abel was instrumental in one of the biggest private game relocations when the land was expropriated and sold to the National Parks Board in 2006. The National Parks Board has since established the Mokhala National Park on the purchased land. Most of the game at Wintershoek Safaris were relocated to Otterskloof Private Game Reserve.

To accommodate the game and continue with his breeding programmes, Abel acquired land in the Philippolis district and named the newly established reserve Otterskloof Private Game Reserve
