Charl started Infinito Safaris in 2003. Living his dream of building his own hunting company materialized slowly after he qualified as a Professional Hunter.
As a Professional Rugby player and Student of the Law, Charl led a very active and adventurous adolescent live. After University and a bad Rugby injury, he decided to turn his passion and expertise into a business.
From the start our motto was always to offer visiting hunters to Africa the “NEVER ENDING” Safari experience. The Latin word “Infinito” fit that mission statement clearly and the name was born.
Charl and Erika married recently in 2016, but they build Infinito Safaris since 2009 into one of Southern Africa’s most recognizable Safari brands, with access to hunting blocks in 4 different countries.
In the 18 years of operations, Infinito has hosted an avg. of 100 Hunters a year, from 17 different Nationalities.
Charl and Erika have become known as one of the favourite families in the industry. Their honesty and integrity in business has become the hallmark of their operation. And they know how to have a good time!
It is with great pride that we present our operation to you. After all, this dream was born many years ago when Leon Snr. Father to Charl, started a hunting business called Mpunzi Safaris. This company and two others (EDM Safaris and Mpumulelo Hunting Safaris) was conglomerated into Infinito Travel Pty. Ltd in 2003, ensuring a very strong, reliable and proficient industry leader.
Charl and Erika currently reside at their main Infinity Lodge in the Limpopo Province of South Africa.
