For more than three centuries, Claude Kleynhans hunting big games in South Africa and neighboring nations such as Botswana and Zambia.

Since 1987, he has led hunting, touring and photographic tours with his company based at Guwela Safaris, Hoedspruit. near the northern border of South Africa. In addition to their hunting, Guwela’s guests were able to enjoy the firm’s ‘ excellent accommodations and fine cuisine.

During paying visitors, Guwela provided hunting tours for a menu of tens of animals that they want to hunt. Although Kleynhans claimed to pay for pets such as giraffes ($2,850) and zebras ($1,500) for the South African Trophies, he did not disclose the charges to be paid for animals such as lions, elephants, crocodiles and African buffalos–a unique set that he had pledged to be’ 100% successful.’

The fearful African buffalo (a.k.a. cape buffalo) can weigh as much as 1300 pound and be dangerously territorial, aggressive and protective of its herd fellows.

They can manage it if they have to battle a tiger (or more). And they can readily do it if they believe that they need to kill a human being who has come too near. According to certain projections, in Africa, more hunters have been killed than any others.

Claude Kleynhans never stood an opportunity against one such animal’s surprise attack. Kleynhans was characterized by local press as an ethical hunter.

In spite of allegations he has ethically hunted (and not endangered the sky bison), Kleynhans ‘ legacy soon fired into social media, as critics have stated that he was a poacher who got what he deserved.

Although this does not extend to the characterization of wildfire, the bigger dispute around big game hunting in Africa will certainly continue.
