Zander Bierman is a born South African with the lifelong dream of having his own safari company.
Raised by parents who were both teachers, he was quite the different one in his family. He always dreamt of hunting, not as a job or a sport, but as a way of living. Priveleged with a great teacher (his cousin who is 7 years older than him), Zander was able to learn all the basics from a very young age - such a young age that he wasn't able to hold the rifle on his shoulder and reach the trigger at the same time.
At the age of 9 Zander shot his first Impala. On that very same day, while herding cattle with his cousin, another opportunity arrived and he shot a Warthog as well. Having shot both his first animals on foot, this is the technique that Zander came to love, and he still prefers using this method today.
When he was 15 years old, Zander started learning about bow hunting and before the end of that same year, he shot his first warthog with the bow.
In 2009 at the age of 19, he started studying Game Ranch Management in Pretoria, at the Tshwane University of Technology.
During his studies he started working at a bow shop where he learned even more about bows. While working there, he would use weekends to guide South African bow hunters, not only earning some pocket money, but still learning a lot.
The year 2011 Zander completed his Professional Hunter course and also finished his National Diploma in Game Ranch Management.
After that he started hunting full-time at different companies in South Africa, still learning a lot & developing his finer hunting skills & methods. During this time he had the privilege of hunting in Zimbabwe as well as hunting the Big 5 & other dangerous game, such as Hippo & Crocodile. He also enjoyed the company of different people from different places, varying from America, Spain, Russia, Germany, Italy & Denmark, & off-course South Africa. During the course of 3 years Zander has hunted with at least 50 different groups of people.
At the end of 2013 Zander visited the U.S.A for the first time. When he returned to South Africa, he felt ready to start up his own safari company.
