Since I was a child I always knew that I wanted to be in the bush…not only in the bush, but part of the bush!
I was born in South Africa in 1989, a year later my family and I moved to Namibia. As the youngest, and only son between three daughters, I would say I had my fair share of struggles in life! In the years to come my family bought a farm not far from the Etosha National Park where I spent most of my weekends and school holidays, hunting small game and birds. It was my own little paradise!
I went back to South Africa in 2006 to finish High School in Pretoria, Gauteng. It was awful to know that I could not escape to my Utopia, but still I was more determined than ever to fulfill my dreams of becoming a Professional Hunter and to spend my days underneath the African sky....
I started working on a game farm just outside of my hometown, Outjo, after completing my diploma in Nature Conservation. Today I am a successful hunting guide, I have been one since 2011 and still going strong. Finally I am living my dream and enjoying every single moment...be it hunting or simply on the beach with a fishing rod in my hand!
I hope that I can pass on my love of nature and hunting to everyone who wishes to visit the breathtakingly beautiful Namibia.
