About Us

Tom Jnr and Snr started hunting in the African bush as young boys and their knowledge of the African bush and its animals is key to their success as professional hunters. Tom qualified as lawyer in 1979 and enjoyed a successful professional career as advocate ever since. His love for adventure quite naturally led to him qualifying as professional hunter in 1997. Guiding numerous international clients on safaris in various African countries on a part time basis had grown into a safari business demanding full-time dedication and involvement.

After finishing high school Tom Jnr ventured into property development in Mozambique. Over a period of three years he developed a holiday resort where he built numerous upper class holiday homes and a restaurant and managed the business until the resort was bought by an international company in 2006. Having qualified as professional hunter in 2005, on his return to South Africa he hunted for an established hunting outfit gaining valuable experience in the hunting of various African species including dangerous game.

Many returning clients over the years is testimony of the fact that a safari with Tom Dreyer Safaris is an invigorating, enjoyable and rewarding journey where you will experience unsurpassed professionalism, reliability, dedication and friendship.
