We are Tom Dreyer Safaris

Tom Sr

Tom Sr qualified as a lawyer in 1979 and enjoyed a successful career as an advocate. In 2020 Tom bid farewell to the law practice to fully devote himself to Tom Dreyer Safaris, full time. His love and passion for hunting and conservation naturally led him to qualify as a professional hunter in 1997. Guiding numerous international clients on safaris in various African countries.

Tom Jr

Ventured into property development in Mozambique after finishing high school. Over a period of three years, he developed a holiday resort where he built numerous upper-class holiday homes and a restaurant and managed the business until the resort was bought by an international company in 2006. Having qualified as a professional hunter in 2005. On his return to South Africa, he hunted for an established hunting outfit gaining valuable experience in the hunting of various African species and countries.


Ruan’s affinity with photography started in 1997 as a game ranger in the Sabi Sands game reserve. By taking clients out on photographic safaris, he became interested in the skills and equipment needed to take exceptional wildlife photos. This interest quickly evolved as he became involved with a professional wildlife photographic team who used him to do conduct their classes. In 2003 he became a Professional Hunter and the photographic hobby turned into a career in 2018 when Tom Dreyer safaris approached him to assist in their videography. This new medium and all the possibilities it posed became the new passion and the rest is history in motion.

About us

Tom Dreyer Safaris was established in 2012 when Tom Sr and Tom Jr decided to join forces. Tom Sr ran a hunting outfit on a part time basis from 1997 while practising law. Tom Jr freelanced for other outfitters since 2006 up until 2011.

In 2011 Tom Sr and Tom Jr purchased a game ranch and bred sable, buffalo and Livingstone eland. In 2012 they decided it was time to pursue their passion which is hunting and guiding clients on safaris.  

From 2015 we have grown from an outfit that mainly hunted in South Africa to an operation that has hunting blocks in Zambia and exclusive hunting rights on 100 000 acres in South Africa.

We pride ourselves in delivering top class service and trophies and strive to cater for each and every client’s needs.

Our Vision

We aim to share the most incredible hunts with our clients, creating memories that will last a lifetime and harvesting trophies no matter your walk of life, physical capabilities or whether you have previous hunting experience or not. 

Client Testimonials

After hunting my first impala more than two decades previously, this was the ultimate one to take. I had never in my life seen a ram as big as this. That evening we had the most succulent piece of venison meat I had ever consumed. Maybe it was just because it was my own sable and also that I had hunted two exceptional animals that definitely added to the taste. This was topped off with homemade bread and jam – there is nothing to beat homemade food! To Thomas and his lovely wife, Mareschka, thank you so much for treating us to a wonderful week. You have a stunning place and your operation runs like clockwork. You will see us again soon and you can hold me to that!
