Willem Gabriel Jordaan was the first Jordaan to arrive in the area in the 1800s. Upon arrival he found bare land, so he put a stake in the ground and claimed the property. From Willem Gabriel, the property has been passed down through the generations. Tollie is the 5th generation, and his sons Paul, Pieter, and Willem are the 6th generation of Jordaan’s on the properties.
The one thing that seemed to flourish on this bare land seemed to be wild game. But Willem Gabriel was a livestock farmer (cattle & sheep), and the wildlife proved to be in competition with his livestock for pasture. As the farmers made their living from breeding livestock, game was not considered to be a financial asset.
Tollie’s father, Paul Abraham Jordaan was one of the country’s best merino sheep farmers. “As a young boy, I remember my dad inviting all his friends to come and hunt, free of charge. They always enjoyed the company and the experience of it.” – Tollie
This gave Tollie the idea to start a hunting business.
Tollie joined his father in the family business in 1986. He then started the hunting business (Tollie’s African Safaris) with corporate clients from South Africa.
Upon starting the hunting business there were only 4 species on the property. They usually only hunted Kudu, Blesbuck, and Springbuck. Not long after that Tollie took the business internationally and started marketing in the USA.
Every year that the hunting business, improved, Tollie reinvested the money back into wildlife, reintroducing one or two more species. Over time it turned into a beautiful selection of wildlife and currently, we have over 30 different species.
Hunting wildlife has proved to be of great value. By reinvesting in game constantly, it ensures that these species remain protected from extinction.
Hunting is not just something we do, it is part of who we are. At Tollie’s African Safaris we take pride in who we are and the values we live by. These values are reflected in our respect for nature, our commitment and investment in African wildlife, and most of all, our ethical hunting standards.
We truly believe that hunting is one of the best conservation tools in the world. So thank you for hunting with us and investing in our African wildlife & heritage.
