John was born in South Africa, one of three sons of a Free State farmer. His hunting career, spanning over 25 years, has taken him from East Africa down through Mocambique, Namibia, Zambia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. John's reputation precedes him, and many are the endorsements of his honesty, ethics and hunting methods. "I guarantee the very best of my personal attention, and I expect my clients whose desire it is to hunt in Africa to be prepared to track and stalk on foot, learning the techniques of approach and fair chase while hunting," he says. Much too has been said about John's extensive experience, especially of dangerous game and cool-headed courage in tight situations.
