To book a South African hunting safari with Richard Holmes Safaris or to make any enquiry whatsoever about one of our hunts, the area or our facilities, please feel free to contact us :
If you are calling from the U.S.A. or the Far East please note that due to time zone differences e-mail contact is easier than phoning.
Postal address : Richard Holmes Safaris, P.O. Box 713, Cradock, 5880, South Africa
GPS coordinates : 31o 56' 20.48"S / 25o 11' 43.05" E
We are situated 60 km (40 miles) north west of Cradock in the Great Karoo.
Take the Aloedale / Fish River Station turnoff off (onto gravel road) from the R61 between Cradock and Graaff-Reinet. (The Aloedale turnoff is 50 km from Cradock on your right and 90 km from Graaff-Reinet on your left).
Follow the road for 10.6 km to our signs - (from the tar, just before the second grid, there is a turnoff to the left "Montagu": do NOT take this, keep straight on). Continue to signs "Clifton, Richard Holmes Safaris, Cat Conservation Trust".
Turn left at these signs, go through the river and up to the lodge, about 1 km.
Please call before you leave town so we know when to expect you in case the river is too deep, which rarely happens. Most of the time the river is only a small puddle which any car can cross.
