African Hunting Safari Guides

We, at Northern Operations Africa, believe that a full rounded PH is a very important trait (one that has hunted in a variety of African Countries and taken a diverse assortment of species). Being able to understand the local communities along with the fauna and flora are undeniably a must for the PHs we endorse. Professional hunters working with Northern Operations Africa are experienced and knowledgeable about the hunts they conduct. We encourage our PHs to create a lasting relationship with each of our clients, working hand in hand with them, and understanding differences among our clientele. Giving them the insight to understand the entire realm of the industry, by being part of the conventions, and meeting the clients before hand, we push to immerse our PH in more than just the actual field work.

Northern Operations Africa PHs include:

Fred Rademeyer -
Hunting Consultant, PH, Agent
Fred Rademeyer, together with his 40 years of experience of dangerous and big game hunting in Africa, is a huge asset to Northern Operations Africa, bringing an incredible amount of knowlege and know how to the whole scene of African Hunting. Fred is the father of Dave, and has joined Northern Operations Africa, to help and encourage Dave to perfect the safari company, through development and promotions. Not only does Fred join us, as a Professional Hunter, but his knowledge and past experiences on how to keep true African Hunting exciting and memorable, is priceless to the company.

Deon West - Raised in Zimbabwe and being involved in hunting from a young age, he is passionate about what he does. He has hunted in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, CAR, and Cameroon. He has been the leading PH in Cameroon for the past 4 seasons.

Thierry Labat - Born in Zimbabwe, raised in Mauritius, where he became fluent in French, allows Thierry to communicate with ease in CAR. His great work ethic, determination and good sense of humor is a perfect combination for success. Thierry has paid his dues, over many years in CAR, to build a great reputation and experience. On his CAR off season, he spends most of his time conducting hunts in Zimbabwe, where now is home.

Clint Burton - Being a hunter himself, he has developed a wide range of knowledge of big game hunting in Africa. His main focus has been Zambia and Zimbabwe, and for the past 3 years has focused on Ethiopia, where he has been very successful, especially for Mountain Nyala. Clint has also hunted Cameroon, and is becoming more and more involved in our forest safaris.

Pete Wood - Peter was born in 1975 into a family that enjoyed the outdoors and hunting in particular. After school he started the stringent Zimbabwe Professional hunters license through a very well known Zimbabwe hunting operator. He acquired his full hunters license in 1999 and has been hunting every year ever since. His high ethical hunting standards and his high repeat clientele is testimony to his hard working, go-get-it attitude. Peter is also proficient in mechanics and can speak 3 languages fluently.
