what our clients have to say


Dear Lerm family,



We had a lot of fun in the 1,5 days at your place and we will come back hunting and seeing you and your family. Thanks a lot for the beautiful days at your farm and for your hospitality.


mit freundlichen Grüßen,
Alexander René Sommer

Hi Nico, Sonette, Hertie en Herman
Baie dankie vir julle moeite en gasvryheid met ons kliente. Ons waardeer dit en ons sien julle beslis weer.


Good morning dear Sonette, Nico and Hertie,
Back home we still have the strong remembrance of the beautiful hunting days on your farm. Thank you again for everything you've arrange for us.

Warm greetings
Stefanie & Jörg

Nico, Sonette en Hertie.
Jy kan altyd iets beter doen, maar jy kan nooit weer iets vir die eerste keer doen nie - dis waarom die eerste keer so belangrik is en waarom ons dit altyd onthou.

Dié naweek was my seuns se eerste jag en julle het dit iets besonders en onvergeetliks gemaak. Nie een van hulle het al ooit aan ń jaggeweer gevat voor hierdie naweek nie. Nie net het Nico hulle leer skiet nie, maar ook gehelp om hulle eerste bokke met hulle eerste skoot te dood.

Dankie vir julle geduld, gasvryheid en vriendelikheid. As die Here wil, hoop ons om weer by julle te kom jag.

Alex Fenwick

Good Day, I am looking for a possible 2 day rifle hunt in November. Your farm came strongly recommended by a fellow hunter.

Craig Nell

Hi Nico, Sonnette en Hertie
Dankie vir die lekker tyd, ek waardeer al die moeite.

Albert Alberts

Hi Nico, Sonnette, Hertie, en almal op die plaas.
Baie dankie vir 'n great jag.

Luke Martin

Ek het nog net goeie dinge gehoor van julle en sal graag my en my broer se eerste jag by julle wil doen.

Groete Paul Kruger

Thank you very much, Nico, Sonette and Herti. I had an awesome day. Thank you very much for your hospitality and friendship.

Wilhelm van Wyk

Hi Nico, Sonette en Hertie
Weereens baie dankie vir 'n besonderse geleentheid by julle, ek dink my 2 manne het dit regtig baie geniet. Dit was hul eerste jag en hulle kan nie uitgepraat raak van die ervaring nie.
Hoop om julle hier by Augustus oor 'n langnaweek weer te sien, ek wil graag weer my seun bring vir n jag.

Groete, Pieter Beukes

I gave your details to my Namibian friend and hunter in case any of his overseas clients wanted to hunt in SA.
If you want to use my recommendation as an update on the Net, please happily do so.

Hunting on Lasarus farm is a pleasure! The Chalets are comfortable, fully equipped and have magnificent mountain views. Nico and Sonette are gracious and helpful hosts. The game is plentiful and in excellent condition. All in all, highly recommended. John Heather, Executive Director, PDS.

Ek moet bywoeg dat Herkie een van die mees indrukwekende vyftien jareges is wat ek nog ontmoet het.
Sien julle volgende jaar!


Wil net weereens baie dankie sê vir ‘n fantastiese jag.
Het dit regtig baie geniet

I booked a hunting weekend with a other hunting outfit in Clan William area. The day before we were suppose to arrive, I contacted them to get the final route and planning. At this time, I was informed that they could not accomodate us anymore, due to other hunters that was on the farm……..I was shocked, to say the least!
This was THE HUNT for my boy, planned to shoot his first buck…..he was in tears…we paid deposit(still waiting for the return of the money).
In all haste and urgency, I called around but could find no farm to accomodate us. I wrote an email to LASARUS GAME FARM.
I explained my scenario to Nico, he immediately made a plan to accomodate us, even though he had plans for the weekend allready, and still they were willing to make my boys dreams come true!
AWESOME, thats all I can say, no other words to describe this venue!
Accommodation was great, neat and clean, warm water for a well deserved shower, nice fire place, braai facilities and right in the middle of a breeding camp for their magnificant Nyala’s.
Clean and neat slaughtering facilities, well trained and experienced personnel to do skinning, caping, meat handling,etc.
Great and experienced hunting guides and some really nice and interesting boma’s.
Hunting is done, either at close range, as in the bushveld or in open fields as plains hunting.
I can’t stop talking about this paradise!
I wish I had other words to say thanks other than THANK YOU SO MUCH, YOU MADE MY SON’S DREAM COME TRUE!
I will definately see you guys next year again!!!

Phillip, Cola and Ruhan

I have to share this.
My son gave me a hunting weekend for my 60th birthday, which took place from 1st to 3rd August. We spent the weekend on Lasarus Game Farm near Albertinia in the Western Cape.
It is my duty to inform all your readers about the wonderful experience we had there.
We were met by our hosts Nico and Sonette Lerm on arrival and shown our accommodation and made to feel at home. The cottage was rustic but very clean and comfortable and very well equipped.
We went out on Friday afternoon where my son got a very nice Springbok. We made a good fire that evening with wood supplied by the farm in the lapa attached to our cottage and spent the evening talking about guns and hunting.
The following morning was bitterly cold but we had an awesome trip out into the bush. We never had any luck ,however other groups had. We were taken around the farm by Nico in his Land Cruiser which is in expellant condition and well maintained. All the game we saw was also in good condition and looked healthy. I mention this because I have been on trips where the game looked as if it would be happier shot, and where you had to push start the vehicle, without doors and sides and holes in the floor. The choice of game to hunt is amazing, and you can have anything from Cape Grey buck to Buffalo.
Let us not forget the trackers who where knowledgeable and helpful.
After lunch on Saturday we went out and I managed to get myself a very nice Springbok which I am well pleased with.
I was most impressed with the facilities on the farm, the professional meat preparation and good working cold room.
I must take this opportunity to recommend Lasarus Game Farm to all the hunters in Knysna, George, Swellendam and even Cape Town and the whole world, you could even get there for a day hunt and it is well worth it.
Please contact Nico or Sonette on lasarus@huntsafari.co.za

Nico, Sonette and Hertie
My son took a picture of him and Hertie to school today he is excited to tell his friends about this wonder kid who is their age and can drive and hunt like an adult.
He is truly a blessing your son.

We hope to see you soon again as Rudy is still preparing for that bushbuck. They have a list of other animals they want to shoot now and of course i’m looking at which of the animals is the slowest for me to shoot:)

We had a great time there amongst great and blessed people like yourselves.
Thank you once again

Dear Nico, Sonette, and Hertie

First of all I want to thank you all for a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed ourselves so much and appreciate all your hospitality. Being able to be there with Rafa when he took his first animal was a priceless moment and a lifetime of memories for me. I know we will be back for another wonderful trip with your family.

Once again thank you so much for an incredible weekend for my family.

Kindest Regards,
Rudy C. Martin

Beste Nico, Sonette en Hertie

Julle drie maak darem ‘n formidabele span.

Baie dankie vir die lekker jag en verblyf daar op Lasarus. Julle het elkeen ‘n bydrae gemaak om dit vir ons twee oues baie aangenaam te maak

Baie dankie ook vir die fotos. Ria kon selfs die ou agter die bok herken!

Vriendelike groete


Dit was regtig great gewees en ons sien julle verseker weer!

Vir Nico se onontbeerlike hulp met die inskiet van die geweer asook al die ander dinge
Sonette, vir jou warme gasvryheid – en, natuurlik, die voortreflike lewer

Ek het jou baie geniet!
En, Willie maak ‘n sjarmante koppie tee!

Dit was goed om julle as gesin te ontmoet
Goed om te weet daar is tog nog behoudende mense met beginsels en morele waardes
Werklik ‘n riem onder die hart!

Sal baie graag julle plaas wil sien wanneer die bome groot is -sal pragtig wees!

Wens vir julle alles wat mooi en goed is!


Hallo Nico en Sonnet

Ons is veilig terug in die Kaap en die karkasse hang in die koelkamer.

Namens al die jagters wil ek net baie dankie sê vir ‘n baie lekker jagtog en al julle gasvryheid.

En ‘n groot spesiale dankie aan Nico wat met die vierwielmotorfiets daardie ekstra myl ingesit het; ons almal het dit opreg waardeer.

Ferdinand Nell

Ek en Louis du Toit het die jagtyd by julle baie geniet.


Dear Nico and Sonnette.
Thank you both for a lovely couple of days.  Dudley I both very much enjoyed ourselves and I am delighted that Dudley got his Springbuck and Zebra. I am very pleased with my Black Sprinbuck and Vaal Reedbuck. I assure that I’ll be in touch the next time I am in Capetown and have the chance to come for another hunt, even if it is a short one.

Patrick Aschan(UK)

Hi, I hear they had a great time.
They seem to have plenty of friends, who will also be coming in your direction.


I want to thank the staff of Lasarus for a wonderful time, This was the most exciting hunt I have ever experienced. You were always on top of things to ensure we got the type of animal we were looking for. It is not just the hunt but the people and friends we’ve made that is even more valuable. See you again!

Phillippr Fatzer, (France)

I appreciate your hospitality, professionalism and the expert care taken to grant all my wishes, I look forward to seeing you again.

Jake Blake (SA)

The hunt with you was one of my most enjoyable trips in a long time. I am a true and passionate hunter but you made our hunt very special by spoiling my dad on his birthday and helped my daughter with her first hunt! Thank you for taking care of my family and making dreams come true.

Armin Brill (Ireland)

Thanks again for everything, It’s been fun as always!!!

Sasha van Heerden and CKR-Group (SA)

I just want to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your farm. Joe had a great time hunting with Nico and I really enjoyed tagging along with them. Sonette, the meals were exceptional, especially the game liver we had for breakfast on Saturday. Everyone was very friendly and helpfull, We hope to see you soon!

Terese and Joe (New York, USA)

Everyone @ Lasarus we just want to tell you again what an awesome time we had, It was much more than we expected and we had the time of our lives. Thank you Nico for your patients with the kids, learning and helping them all to shoot there first buck. We will be back!

Nicolas and Anne-Lize Tsinonis and family(Saudi Arabia)

I want to share a few compliments, I know in your business when something doesn’t go to suit someone(and that will be his own fault) they don’t hesitate to let you know.
This past weekend Alwyn did a great job as guide and professional hunter. I know my friend also learned a lot from you, Nico, this was his first hunt and you learned him more than shooting a buck, he learned to love and respect nature.
The lodging, food and everyhting made quite an impression. I’ve been lucky enough to hunt in quite a few places, and Lasarus out performs them all, when it somes to good qualities. All of the best for the future, See you soon!

Mario Vincenzi (Italy)

A GREAT PLACE with LOTS of GAME, fun fot the whole family.

Johan Human(SA)

Me and my family had a great time hunting with you and we even caught a few bass in the Gouritz River, Sandra’s first fish!!- Thanks again!

Ferdi and Michelle(SA)
