About Us
Umlilo Safaris is well established as one of the top Safari Outfitters in South Africa.
Third generation Dorfling Brothers, Francois and Johan, are the owners of Umlilo Safaris and will be your hosts and Professional Hunters.


Francois and Johan were born and bred in the hunting community and started hunting at a very young age. Their love and passion for the wildlife of Africa stretches well beyond their hunting skills and operation. They share a burning desire for the conservation and the protection of wildlife. It is this desire that makes them such good hosts and Professional Hunters. They enjoy sharing their experiences, ideas, hunting methods and hunting area.

Umlilo Safaris has always been about the conservation of its wildlife through ethical hunting. Walk and stalk style hunting preferred, but ambushing tactics are also used when more suitable.
We specialise in 3 categories of hunting: Trophy Hunting, Management Hunting and Dangerous Game Hunting.

Trophy Hunting is hunting for the old, fully mature male animal that meets the SCI standards. These animals are well discussed and carefully selected by your Professional Hunter.
Management Hunting is the hunting of a specific species in specific areas where the number of game have exceeded the feeding capacity of the area.
Dangerous Game Hunting are animals like the Cape Buffalo, Leopard and Lion for example.
All categories are well controlled and planned up to one year in advance. Umlilo Safaris take a lot of factors into account, before finalizing hunting packages for the following season.

Through many years of experience, a true understanding has been built of what it takes to be a top Outfitter and Professional Hunter. We therefore cater for the experienced Trophy hunter, the Novice hunter, Family Groups and non-hunting guests. Hunters with a disability are also welcome. Each and everyone's stay is important.

There are excursions that can be added to any safari such as Deep-Sea Fishing, Sightseeing activities and travel. All of this is detailed on the website.

We offer different grades of accommodation to meet different client’s needs. All of which is listed on this website. However, the hospitality, service, comfort and hunting are equal, no matter which lodge you choose.
If you are looking for a dream African experience, with no hidden costs - you have reached your destination!

Accommodation Full Board / All-inclusive Safaris are offered by Umlilo Safaris.
All our existing clients would certainly agree that we ‘live to eat and not eat to live’….Our divine brunches and sumptuous dinners will be logged in your memories forever - you may certainly look forward to tasting many of the hunted species whilst on safari. Clients do not need to worry about paying for drinks and certainly not for any meals or even snacks while on Safari with us….all included in daily rates and/or packages quoted.

Umlilo Safari Lodge

The Lodge is built on the bank of the Kariega River, with breath-taking views of the valley bushveld, the Southern African plains and the beautiful rolling hills and mountain range across the valley.

Capture the traditional African feeling of having sundowners at the bar/patio or while cooling off at our swimming pool, watching springbuck, wildebeest, giraffe, impala, kudu, warthog, zebra on their daily visit to the nearby waterhole in front of the lodge.

6 x Double Rooms all en-suite, strategically placed surrounding an open-air courtyard with central fireplace, where many a story (with AND without a twist) have been shared by visiting hunters during the past 14 years.

Francois runs a great operation. My wife and I hunted lion and sable with him. The hunt was outstanding, and along with our great trophies, we found a great new friend in Francois. We're looking forward to our next hunt with him and highly recommend Umlilo Safaris and Francois to anyone.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
