Corne grew up on a farm in South Africa where the bush and hunting are an integral part of life. So the progression to Professional Hunter and guide was a natural one, a profession for which he has an instinctive feel. Corne has been a licensed Professional Hunter and guide in South Africa since 1996 and in Botswana since 2000.


Corne is a naturalist and not just a hunter. His primary concern always is safety. And his good sense of humour, easy going nature, knowledge and stories of life and adventures in the bush give guests an experience they will never forget and will long to repeat!

Corne’s passion is people and the bush. Corne has hunted and guided since 2000 in Botswana at various concessions including; African Horseback Safaris and Holbrow Hunting Safaris out of the renowned Selby’s Camp in the Okavango Delta. During this time he has managed all aspects of bush camps and lodges and has extensive experience in hunting and horse-back guiding in big game areas. Additionally, he has broad experience in maintenance, logistics, catering, field preparation of trophies, entertaining guests, managing crises in remote locations, and training and development of staff.

While horseback guiding in the Delta Corne met and fell in love with his wife – Pam. They were blessed enough to have the privilege of a wedding on horseback in the depths and majesty of the Delta, surrounded by friends and family. An exceptional and unforgettable experience for both of them.
