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 life. 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 started Infinito Safaris in 2009 and built Infinito into one of Southern Africa’s most recognizable Safari brands, with access to hunting blocks in 4 different countries.
In the 20 years of operations, Infinito has hosted an avg. of 100 Hunters a year, from 17 different Nationalities.
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 currently reside at their main Infinity Lodge in the Limpopo Province of South Africa.
