Frans Schutte (Snr)
Frans Schutte (Snr) started off his hunting career in the Komati area of South Africa close to the Mozambique border in the late 1970’s. Since then he has been hunting with clients and friends, biltong and trophy, throughout South Africa, Kalahari, Namibia and Zimbabwe with the Mateki hills and Bubi river area close to Gonarezhou in Zimbabwe closest to his heart.
By rare opportunity the ranches Cottondale & Kilima close to the Kruger National Park, Limpopo, South Africa, disease free buffalo area, came up for sale and Frans (Snr) realized that this land with its river beds and ravines at the foot of the Murchison Mountain Range was an extraordinary opportunity and represented a major spectrum of African wildlife. It became an absolutely family love affair where Frans, his wife Jane, son Frans (Jnr) daughters Carissa & Adele and son in laws Jacques & Rassie are all passionately involved.
