Meet the outfitter
Henk Engelbrecht is the hunting outfitter and owner of the company Rawhide Safaris cc. He has more than 20 years hunting experience in Africa, whose interests in hunting started from a very young age. Wingshooting and Plains Game hunting is his passion. In the past 15 years he commenced hunting with a compound bow.
The origin of the name “Rawhide” lies in the large quantity of game that was found in the Free State province and harvested during the pioneering of the interior (1800’s). The skins were cut into strips and dressed into rawhide lariats, thongs & strops. This area has now some of the best wingshooting habitat that you can find anywhere in the world due to the grain that’s been planted.
