The most important determining factor in the success of your safari is the professional hunter, whose skill and experience should protect you in potentially dangerous situations and enable you to take the trophies you are hunting for. His companionship and dedication is a big contributing factor to the overall enjoyment of the experience.


The PH's you will encounter when on safari with Nhoro Safaris are all experienced in the pursuit of Africa's mammals. From the Plains Game species that inhabit the open savannah to the mighty Cape Buffalo which is arguably the most dangerous of the Big Five. Each animal is unique in its habits and behavior, experience and respect are the most important factors when pursuing the various species.

Juan Steenkamp


Although he was born in a city he was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to spend weekends and school holidays on his grandparent’s farms.  The love for guns and hunting was soon instilled in him as his Dad and grandfather were both keen hunters.  During his younger days the air rifle and fishing rod soon became his constant companion during the time spent on the farm.


Being privileged to live at Hoedspruit in an unspoiled and unfenced environment, from his pre- and primary school days, his love for the veld and its animals were nurtured in the sub tropical climate of the Bushveld.


Juan started to hunt bigger game animals from an early age and his love for hunting and the outdoors escalated after numerous hunting trips to the point where he decided to become a professional hunter during 2007.
