Jan Oelofse Hunting Safaris, our team of professional hunters, will provide you with one of the best possible hunting experiences available in Namibia and all of Africa. We are a family-run operation, his wife Annette and son Alex, as well as the entire team carrying on the legacy that Jan Oelofse left behind when passing on the 15th of October 2012. Jan Oelofse was a mentor, an artist, an entrepreneur, an inventor, a humanitarian, a friend, a husband and father, but above all a passionate conservationist. He will be missed by many, particularly in the hunting industry.
(12 July 1934 - 15 October 2012)
Jan Oelofse started his hunting career in the early fifties in East Africa, John Wayne being one of his most remembered hunting companions, during the filming of "Hatari". Jan was chosen as the Most Outstanding Professional Hunter in 1982 by the Safari Club International. The accolade speaks for itself, his hunting outfit is built on years of experience, his Professional Hunters trained by a Professional in the field himself. With Jan Oelofse Hunting Safaris you will have a traditional safari experience, with top quality accommodations and most importantly an outfitter that produces results and has proven himself to be more than trustworthy.
