Lemara Game Breeding Farm is located at the foot of the majestic Drakensberg mountain range of Hoedspruit. Ranging approximately 900 hectares, part of the farm is divided into different camps for the breeding of rare species.

Piet Potgieter produces and mixes his own feed to provide only the best quality to his animals. His love for animals started with the purchase of his first Livingstone Eland seventeen years ago and he has strived to breed the perfect Livingstone Eland since.

His first Sable Cows was also purchased at this time by different breeders. He started off by purchasing pure breed Zambian bulls  from Sable Ranch and began crossbreeding. Over time, he purchased Breeding Bulls from Piet Warren and Thaba Tholo.

Currently the number one breeding in the herd is a Piet son called Wasabi measuring 51.125 and is the no 1 on 50 to 60 months of age on the Wildlife Stud Services Database for Sable Bulls Rowland Ward. The herd currently consists of 140 females and strict selection is constantly applied to improve the herd and keep the herd up to their high standards. Bulls bred on the farm currently measure just below 50”.

Piet Potgieter's buffalo herd currently consists of 60 female Kruger bloodline animals. Their number one breeding bull is a 49 4/8” Kruger Buffalo, called Tornado and was bred by Dr. Hein Muller. Various breeding bulls were bred from this herd from quality cows measuring over 40”.

The Roan herd is of exceptional quality and only bulls of 31”+ are used.

We also specialise in the following species: Black Impala, Saddle Back Impala, Nyala  and Golden Wildebeest.

The farm would not have been a success without the grace of God and a loyal team.
