Your Hosts

Your Host:   Charl van Rooyen lives for hunting. A second generation Professional Hunter, Charl learned his trade from his father Leon and soon understood the basics of the complicated world that is Safari hunting. Charl joined his father on numerous hunting and fishings Safaris in South Africa, Botswana, and Mozambique, learning his trade the hard way, with boots on the ground.   Charl studied law post high school (“never fancied that!”) and played Professional Rugby for a couple of years before a neck injury stopped that career path. The obvious path, and the one he dreamed about his whole life, was that of what he loves most, hunting!   “The ethos of hunting for me is the pursuit of game in their natural environment, in a total fair chase spirit. I only hunt for the best trophies for my clients, and doing that pursuit takes me to all the Southern African countries I can hunt in.   “I have worked very hard during the last 10 years to secure hunting rights in areas that are big enough , with good trophy quality, to offer my unique Plains Game Safari experience. The result of this hard work, enables Infinito Safaris now to offer our clients the pursuit of species from the Limpopo river in the north to the Cape in the south of the country, in their natural free roaming environment!”   Charl is furthermore very passionate about hunting Buffalo, Leopard and Elephant.   “Everyone of these are special. The Leopard being the most difficult trophy to get in Southern Africa, the Buffalo for being so unbelievably tough and rugged looking, and the Elephant for the metal focus the hunt requires, and the danger involved.”   Fishing, Bowhunting and Big bore rifles are other passions for the big man:   “ Some of fondest memories comes from hours fishing with my dad and brother. Saltwater or fresh water, it does not matter, as long as I can outwit the scaly critters down below! Bow hunting is something that crossed my path no too long ago. It was refreshing to find a discipline in hunting that I had learn from the start. I became a addicted Mathews fan, and still believe it is the best hunting bow on the market! Big bore rifles and me come  a long way. I had my .375 H&H Pre-64 Mod 70 Winchester for 20 years now! I also use a .458Win for my DG work. With modern loads this calibre really stepped up to the plate, and has saved my life twice now!!   Your Hostess Erika Janse van Nieuwenhuizen have been with Infinito Safaris since 2009.
