Born and raised in Zimbabwe, I was introduced to hunting and the outdoors early in my childhood, accompanying my father, Ron Van Heerden, who spent over 20 years with the Zimbabwe National parks & wildlife Department, on numerous problem animal and elephant / buffalo culling operations.
Over the past 20 years as a full time professional hunting guide and running my own safari business since 1995, I have hosted clients from all corners of the globe, many of whom have returned several times to hunt with me in the various African countries i have operated in.
Having hunted extensively throughout Africa, I have had first hand experience in a multitude of concessions, guiding clients on hunting safaris in Zimbabwe, Mozambique & Tanzania, Whatever your trophy requirements are, be it trophy elephant & buffalo, a full mane lion or big tom leopard, or a masai plainsgame collection, we are able to put together a safari specifically to your requirements.
Hunting is my passion, I will always ensure that you have a true authentic African experience, all hunts are conducted using traditional fairchase hunting ethics, where tracking, and walk / stalk methods for larger game are used, with baiting being the preferred method for hunting the big cats.
Africa is a truely unique place, for the time of your life.... come on safari.
