Coenraad Vermaak Safaris (CVS) has been operating for close on 40 years and can rightfully claim to be the longest established safari outfitter in South Africa. CVS is based in Hilton, KwaZulu-Natal and is managed by Coenraad’s son Hans (Scruff) and his daughter Eileen (Wikkie) and has a large staff compliment enabling CVS to conduct several safaris at the same time. Presently it has access to 14 different concession areas in South Africa including the best National Park and Provincial Game Reserve areas.
In 2005 CVS acquired its own concession called Sankuyu in Botswana as well as other concessions along the Limpopo River, enhancing its offerings in particular for trophy elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, crocodile and plains game. CVS’s success rate for quality trophies is legendary - the record books speak for themselves! CVS is also very active in the international tourism industry which excludes professional hunting.
In addition, CVS’s sister company Dark Continent Video Productions, with their professional team of videographers and editors, film and produce top quality DVD’s of the safaris, complete with sunsets, campfires, music and special effects, allowing clients to relive those special moments time and again.
