Comments / pictures

H. Du Preez Wild was established in 1983 when game farming and wildlife trans-location were still relatively unknown practices. Hannie and Jan du Preez started off with one old Mercedes truck, a helicopter and an inspired ground crew. Capturing game on cattle fenced farms was a daunting task.

It was not very long before the wildlife industry took off in Namibia and South Africa in the late 1980's. In 1987 their son Jannie and his wife Heidi joined the company. Qualified as a helicopter pilot, Jannie took over as operational manager and later as general manager of the family business. Over the years Du Preez Wild helped to establish well known farms like the Pilansberg Game Reserve and later the Tsalu Game Sanctuary in South Africa.
