Your host and Outfitter at Cruiser Safaris is Pieter Lamprecht. Through this family owned and operated business Pieter brings to you a lifetime of experiences in the Limpopo Province. Although his family tree in South Africa dates back to the 18th century, their roots in this province all began in 1925 when his Grandfather first purchased land here. Pieter’s children are the fourth generation to live on this property. His native-born Father and Uncles were enthusiastic "Big Five" hunters. Following in their footsteps Pieter started hunting when he was only 5 years old!
His passion for wildlife evolved over the years and in the early 1990's, due to his desire to share his intimate knowledge of the South African Bushveld and wildlife with others, he completed his Professional Hunting Course.
Pieter gained experience as a Professional Hunter and so appreciated guiding foreign hunters through their dream of hunting “The Dark Continent” that he decided to start his own outfitting company and established Cruiser Safaris in 1995. Because he owns the land, lodge, vehicles, etc. there is no need to lease those things or hunt on concessions where other outfitters hunt as well. He also has exclusive hunting rights on several concessions that we do hunt and advices those land owners for well-planned game management policies to insure sustainable numbers of healthy game. With Cruiser Safaris, you always know where you will be staying and that you will be hunting quality trophy animals.
Pieter is well known and respected in his community and the hunting industry. He is Chair Person of LEAF (Limpopo Environmental Action Forum, a member of Safari Club International, PHASA (Professional Hunters Association of South Africa) and WRSA (Wildlife Ranching South Africa. WRSA is the national wildlife ranching organization comprising individuals in the wildlife industry including land owners with an interest in game, game ranchers, professional hunters, hunting outfitters, taxidermists, game reserves and mixed farmers. WRSA’s contributes to ensuring sustainable wildlife ranching.)
In 2014 Pieter received WRSA’s prestigious Wildlife Rancher of the Year Award. The top eight nominees for this award go through an extensive in-depth two-day evaluation process which covers all aspects of their organization, from wildlife game management practices to the accurateness of recording keeping and everything in between. Pieter has proven that he runs a well-organized and established, self-sufficient operation [farm] that encompasses all aspects of the industry [game management, breeding and hunting) that is not funded by any outside source.
We were immediately met by the owner Pieter and his wife... Most outfitters I have hunted with that would have been the last time I seen the owner but not at Cruiser. …I loved the fact the owner was so involved with the day to day aspects. ... Pieter truly does a remarkable job of maintaining trophy quality animals for his clients. ... Pieter and his staff do such a great job that you will find yourself wondering when you can come back even before you have left.

From being as little as I can remember I have had the will to hunt. I grew up on a farm where I had my first warthog hunt at the young age of 5 years and from there on I have had countless hunts on a wide range of species. I am a very driven and passionate hunter and do my best to provide my clients with thier biggest expectations.
Craig is a seasoned professional hunter who has been with the Cruiser family since 2006. He is a load of fun, which is why the kids will enjoy him as well as novice hunters on their first African hunting safari. He is an excellent hunting partner, and will spot anything that moves. This family man brings a unique perspective to hunting, and has plenty of stories to share about days spent in the bush.
My passion is definitely the outdoors, everything it has to offer. Hunting, fishing and just the beauty that comes with nature. I hunted my first animal when I was 7 years old, and from there on everything started, I was hooked. I grew up on a farm luckily, and wouldn't change a thing. The reason why I love being a PH is making people's dreams come true, especially when people appreciate the animal.

Our skilled trackers will drive the hunter and the hunting guide where they need to be, then they will be on standby until they are needed to help track an animal, or to fetch the client. They will also do the skinning, so that you can relax back at base. They undoubtedly have skills that cannot be taught, their senses in the bush are just on another level.
