About Phirima Game Ranch

Phirima Game Ranch is an unspoilt piece of Africa nestled in the heart of the Kalahari in Botswana. Phirima is the Tswana word for ‘the place where the sun sets’, which is an accurate description of the spectacular sunsets that we experience in this part of the world. Phirima Game Ranch gives you the opportunity to experience Africa at its core, unspoilt and boundless.

The farm is situated in the south-western part of Botswana, about 30 km from the southern boundary of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and about 80 km due south from Mmabuasehube. The farm boasts diverse scenery ranging from sandy dunes, grassy areas and random areas that are densely populated with beautiful trees. Various types of self-catering accommodation are offered.

What makes the farm even more charming is the opportunity to spot our bountiful game around every twist and turn. Phirima boasts a wide range of indigenous wild buck, ostriches, brown hyenas, jackals, baboons and honey badgers. We have also introduced many new species to increase our diversity, including white rhinoceros, giraffe, impala, waterbuck, zebra and warthog. Some of Botswana’s more exotic wildlife has been spotted on Phirima, from time to time; free-roaming lion, leopard and cheetah have dug their way into the sanctuary.

Our main activity on the farm is hunting, however we also promote game-viewing, especially during the off-hunting season. Apart from our bountiful game populations, we also have an abundance of birdlife.

Our overnight stay was awesome. Toilets and shower facilities were great - it was fun lighting a donkey for hot water. Wood was supplied for a camp fire. Kitchen facilities and equipment was more than needed. Place was spotless and beds were comfy. Staff warm and friendly. I am definitely going back and will highly recommend it to my friends. Good value for money and conveniently located for anyone en-route to Mabuasehube.

The worse place ever stayed at.I wouldn’t advise any human being to stay.It was the bad choice to spend my wife birthday there.Hate that place with my whole heart.Where can I claim refund.

I really enjoyed out stay at Phirima, the silence and solitude was great. I clearly need to learn to operate a "donkey" for a hot shower but that is a fualt of my own.

We felt truly privileged to be able to spend 2 nights in your camp. The wildlife was stunning, we didn't see a single piece of litter and our camp was kept spotless by the amazing Sana.Cant wait to go back.
