Hennie van Jaarsveld:
Hennie started hunting and fishing early in his life, and decided to pursue a dream career as a Professional Hunter in 2003. Hennie has enjoyed hunting for Kubusi Safaris for almost 9 years, and has had the opportunity to hunt most of the big five, and the majority of plains game available in South Africa.
"Hunting and fishing outdoors has always been a passion of mine. There is nothing more rewarding than a good day in the bush with like minded people. Every year my passion grows more and more for the sights and sounds that I'm lucky to call my office".
Greg was born and raised in the Eastern Cape and started hunting when he was a teenager. After completing his military service, Greg continued following his passion as a hunter and outdoorsman. He then spent 5 years working in the UK and returned to South Africa and continued working as a professional hunter full time. Greg's outgoing personality and knowledge of the bush makes him a great asset to Kubusi Safaris and a brilliant guide.
"I have been hunting since the age of 10 years old, It has always been a passion of mine and I knew I wanted to pursue it as my occupation when I was older. I also help local farmers with vermin control shooting baboons, lynx, jackal and bush pig. I enjoy socializing with clients and having the opportunity to show them a true African experience".
Kevin started guiding in 1998 hunted for 2 years in East Cape then hunted the next 8 years in Namibia. Kevin has been hunting in the Eastern Cape again for the last 5 years.
