Marius Roothman Boerdery includes both Waterval and Hoogenboomen farms located just south of the Pilanesberg Mountains.

The Roothman family is proud of their record-price achievements at auctions over the past years, especially in plains species such as Springbok and Tsessebes. They are extremely excited about the future of the game industry, both breeding and hunting activities.

History

Marius Roothman Boerdery was established and developed over the last decade on the farms Waterval and Hoogenboomen, just south of the Pilanesberg Mountains in the typical Savannah habitat with a subtropical climate. This 1200 ha farm is in heartwater area with mainly sweet grazing.

Thorough investigation and research to calculate and adapt his business plan for the future ensure a good return on investment. His herds boast some of the best animals in the industry.

Initiating the expansion of the business to include bontebok, springbuck and eland in the Southern Cape Province, are in process.

Philosophy

Driven by passion for exotic game, Marius Roothman ignited his dream 12 years ago by investing into quality genetics.

Farming in the heartwater area poses its own unique challenges but the past six years have proven that superior bloodlines and genetics coupled with nutritional health, are the winning recipe for continued exceptional results. The farms Waterval and Hoogenbomen, south of the Pilanesberg Mountains where Marius plies his trade, consist of mainly sweet grazing savannah habitat and here the focus remains on quality rather than quantity. The business is managed as a family concern and anyone subscribing to their “work hard, play hard”-policy, is welcome to visit them there.
