At Maverick Safaris our passion for hunting has shaped our philosophy and desire to expose more people to this exciting sport. Our commitment to encourage sustainable hunting practices is portrayed in our consistent desire to create and attract positive awareness to the appreciation and conservation of the diverse fauna and flora in Southern Africa.
Meet the Team
Cheslyn, director and co-founder of Maverick Safaris, is a professional hunter who developed an affinity for the industry after his introduction to hunting in 2008. He has completed numerous safaris across South Africa, and is driven to instil others with an appreciation for nature and the discipline of the hunt. He believes in conservation of the industry through responsible hunting and breeding practices and famously says that ‘whilst big-five hunting is the pinnacle of the hunting industry, it can only be preserved through sustainable conservation and education programs.’ Cheslyn is an activist for the transformation of the value chain across the industry.
