David Aadnesgaard and family.

David Aadnesgaard (Aadnesgaard is a Norwegian name meaning headland farm) and his wife Sonja have 3 children (Sigi, Olav & Kari). David has lived his entire life in the heart of the Umkomaas Valley in Southern Kwa-Zulu Natal Province on a farm owned by his family since 1960. Southern Natal Province is steeped in hunting tradition, and David who was no exception to this, grew up hunting from the early age of 6 when he shot his first Bushbuck ram. David started his own hunting venture in 1993 and has been doing so ever since. He is largely credited as a pioneer in starting commercial hunting in Southern Natal. David has been very proactive in reintroducing a number of game species back into the region, the result being a well preserved and game rich area which offers exceptional free range hunting for certain key species as well as a host of other plains game species.

Peter Kennedy and his wife Cathryn have a daughter, Kwezi (which is the Zulu word for the morning star) and a son Richard (not pictured). Peter has also lived his entire life in Kwa-Zulu Natal Province and has been friends with David since he was a boy. Peter guided his first hunt in 1991and has operated in South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. He has operated his own hunting company since 2000 and was named the 2003 “Professional Hunter of the Year”. With being gone from his family for long periods at a time in 2005 he left the hunting world and got into commerce outside of the safari industry. Missing the safari industry in 2008 he and David started what is now known as Trophy Safaris Africa, although he still also works in the commerce area.

Let us share the South Africa we know and love and
