“I was born and raised on a sheep farming operation near Bedford in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. My love for the outdoors and Hunting started at an early age. 

I remember going hunting at age 6 with a .22, accompanied by Mlungisi. I was at a Boarding School in Grahamstown and always looked forward to getting home for the holidays and hunting for Rock Hyrax and Monkeys, then later graduated to Hunting Springbuck. 

Some 40 years later, Mlungisi still hunts with me. After completing my military service and attending college, I returned to the family business, and my passion for Hunting grew even more.

It has become a real family business with my wife, Elizabeth, doing the catering. She is enthusiastically helped by our twin daughters, Lauren and Jessica. They are also keen hunters and are following the family tradition.

I will always be available during your hunt and stay at Hopewell Lodge.”
