“I was born into a family of hunters and grew up in the Bushveld. With a father who was an old school Professional Hunter and Outfitter, I have grown up fostering a love for the incredible fauna and flora Africa has to offer. Being involved in my fathers’ outfit from a very young age to having my own outfit was almost like a rite of passage for me.”
Dawie Kemp will expertly guide you on an outstanding and unforgettable African Safari adventure.
