Meet Abrie, our adventurous, knowledgeable, fun-loving, people’s kind of Professional Hunter.
Want to experience the fullness of Africa? Abrie’s knowledge of nature in its entirety is remarkable and he is only too happy to have his brain picked about his passion, the African outdoors. The following is a short autobiography for you to get to know one of our Professional Hunters, who will play a vital part in you achieving your African Dream:
"I am a passionate yet avid hunter that grew up on a farm in the Limpopo province. I believe that I was genetically engineered to be a hunter … walking and stalking “animals” from when I was a toddler, I harvested my first animal when I was 5 years old. Now I have a little boy of my own and so enjoy taking him hunting, seeing so much of myself in him. My beautiful wife and precious daughter are my biggest fans and also share my passion for the outdoors.
Rifle hunting, I do, however Bow hunting is my specialty and favored method of hunting. Having hunted and harvested over 100 animals with the bow and guided clients on more than 200 bow kills, most of them walk and stalk, Bow Hunting simply never seems to get old!
Although I had been hunting all my life, I qualified officially in 2006 as a professional hunter, enabling me to share my passion in rifle and bow hunting with clients on safaris.
Not only do I adore hunting, but I am ‘hooked’ on “Rock and Surf” deep sea and estuary fishing! I am also a part of the Light Tackle Boat League, which is a fishing league competing in salt water and estuary fishing, usually a catch-and-release approach.
Just as any hunter, I love to ‘play’ around with my rifles and do all of my own reloading to get the best out of my rifles.
At the end of the day I am an adventurer who loves to be with and share my passions with people. I love people and families, and strive to make each client’s hunting safari memorable."
