Hunt Africa Big Five Animals with a Quality Adventure- and Hunting Operator

Our Approach

Safari Njema is a hunting operator that enjoys the privilege of guiding and educating in the way of the hunt. We pay attention to the smallest detail and the team work as one to ensure your African safari hunting trip exceeds your expectations.  When it comes to the hunt, our clients from the experienced to the first time hunter, track and stalk on foot with us while we teach the techniques of approach and how to behave in a tight situation as necessary.  The inexperience will learn what real hunting is about.  Safari Njema has a 90% return clientele - not because they ever guarantee a trophy ("the bush offers no guarantees"), but because they live the legend of African big game hunting.

Embedded in the rich African culture since the late 1650's, the Safari Njema hunting operators imparts Africa to their clients in a unique and striking way...

Piet Steyn

we strive for perfection

Piet was born in 1967 and raised on his grandfather’s farm, where he developed a love for animals and the bush. He has guided many successful and happy clients on dangerous game hunts for lion, buffalo, elephant and leopard in South Africa and Tanzania as well as numerous African plains game hunting.

From hunts in countries such as Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana and Angola he has gained invaluable experience and knowledge of Africa at its best and it’s harshest.

He passes these insights and experiences on to his clients, to ensure the best possible bush adventure, allowing them to leave Africa fulfilled and knowledgeable, with a hunger to return. 

Please don’t think that we only cater for the advanced hunter...

 Piet loves to share his passion with the first time hunter, as well as families and children on their first experience of Africa. It is with them in mind that Safari Njema was born.

Amanda Lerm

we focus on the customer

Amanda was born in the Kimberley, Northern Cape, South Africa.  She grew up on a farm and started hunting with her father since she was big enough to carry her own rifle. She did her CHASA course at SJB when she was 16 and shot her first springbuck that same year. She hunted many springbuck and kudu with her father since the age of 16 and also competed in various shooting competitions with him.   

In 2006 she completed her National Professional Hunters Diploma and have been in the hunting operator and -guiding business ever since.

I am a Professional Hunter because of the thrill and the excitement of the hunt!

To her, the challenge is to see how close you can get to an animal, without them knowing about you and then finding the right trophy to take down. If the right trophy does not present itself then it's getting out there and doing it all over again until you succeed that shows hunting is in your bones! There is nothing in the world that compares to that feeling!! Should you ever lose that feeling of excitement, (also known as buck fever) Amanda believe you might as well stop hunting! 

She is a stern believer in the relationship between hunting and conservation.  She believes that hunting and conservation go hand in hand, and that is the way she does her job. Her motto being,

Always respect nature and the animals you hunt, and hunt ethically!

 For her ethical hunters maintain 'hunt fair chase'-standards.  That is to hunt in a manner where the animal always has a fair chance of getting away.  She does walk and stalk or spot and stalk and do not hunt off vehicles or at night with spotlights. Read more about our Hunter Code Ethics

It is as much a thrill to see her clients happy and having a great hunt as it is to go hunting for herself.  She does both rifle and bow hunting and enjoys them equally. She started taking up bow hunting in 2007 and had many successful hunts since then, either sitting in a blind or a tree stand or hunting on foot, walking and stalking.

It's always a great feeling to see a happy hunter after we successfully made a kill on an animal he/she really wanted. A trophy of a lifetime!  Come and join us at Safari Njema and we will make your dreams about Africa come to life...
