Lategan Safaris was started in 1999 by Bennie & Carien Lategan – Bennie has been trophy hunting for the last 35 years and big game and plains game hunting professionally for the last 16 years.
He has a lot of experience in hunting plains and big game in South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique.
Carien runs her own Beauty school in Aliwal North – the ladies that come with and hunt or as observers can go and relax in Carien’s day spa. Carien and the couple’s two sons, JB and Eben, are also avid hunters. The boys have been hunting since they were 6 years old. As you can see the whole operation is run as a family unit.
The family started Bushman River Lodge in 2003, and since then this has been the base camp. Lategan Safaris will strive to make your trip to South Africa an unbelievable hunting experience – you will be treated professionally during the hunt and your stay at Bushman River Lodge, and can be assured that Bennie and his professional hunters will ensure that you go back home with great trophies and a memorable hunt.
