John H. Bosch

John Bosch was born in Windhoek, Namibia on the 12th of September 1971 to Dr. & Mrs J.K. Bosch.  While he spent most of childhood in Luderitz (of the Skeleton Coast of Namibia), his adventures started at a very young age, flying with his father, who was the district doctor, to villages and farms in the most remote areas in Namibia and beyond.  A standard form of payment back in the days was by means of produce such as meat, milk, bread, eggs etc., and of course hunting.   They never flew anywhere without hunting rifles!  This caused him to experience many hunting adventures with his father and he managed to shoot his first lion at age 8.  After completing high school he did the compulsory 2 years of military service with the SADF and after that became a Professional Hunter under the guidance of his mentor,  Johan Calitz.  Completing his apprenticeships in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Mozambique, he arrived in Tanzania in 1995 and have been living and hunting in Tanzania ever since.  John is extremely well experienced and promises to make your African hunting expectations a reality!
