Why we started
Man has hunted since he walked the Earth.
Every early culture relied on hunting for survival.
Through hunting, man forged a connection with the land and learned quickly that stewardship of the land went hand-in-hand with maintaining wildlife – and their own way of life.
In this world where honour is rare, we are proud to be different:
- We do what we say we will do.
- We passionately endorse the highest standards of ethics and service.
- We spend all the time we can in the wilds and we intimately know and love this tawny continent.
- We love Africa.
- We will make sure your adventure will be an experience you will savour for a lifetime.
A Letter from Danie Van Graan, January 2020
David grew up in front of me. He is my best friend’s son, and from his early years, I recognised in David a special quality. He has a great way with people and a passion for Africa’s wildlife and people; a perfect candidate to be a great professional hunter! For more than 20 years I was his mentor and friend. Sadly, his father passed away, but he became the son I never had.
David has a natural ability to guide and he is enthusiastic, friendly and outgoing. He works very hard and is always willing to go the extra mile for his clients.
‘Your profound respect and love of the wilderness and the game you are hunting are important to your client at all times’. These are the words I taught David to live by.
in 2019 he guided Jim Hewins and Lindy Cooper, the daughter of the famous Jeff Cooper, on a safari in Zululand. I was fortunate enough to be able to accompany them. I saw myself in him and more because he has proven to be even better than I am.
I am proud to say that David is qualified to guide any of my old clients and can probably even show them a better time than I did!
