Who is Byron Hart African Safaris
Byron Hart African Safaris is a young, owner-run company, but with a definitive history of hunting and hospitality experience spanning back for 18 years.
Byron's father was an exploration geologist and nature lover, thus most holidays whilst growing up were spent in national parks and bush camps, learning all about geology, biodiversity and species interactions. His father's love of nature photography was also passed on to Byron, but his father was not a hunter, nor did he like guns.
Byron always had an interest in guns, taking every opportunity to go shooting with friends. He started hunting professionally after realising the benefits of selective hunting as a sound tool of population management for wildlife conservation. His approach to hunting comes out of his experiences earning a Bachelor's Degree in Natural Resource Management and Nature Conservation.
From then, he managed one of the largest private hunting reserves in the country, learning all the necessary details needed to run a successful hunting operation. His passion though was to hunt for large dangerous game, but opportunities in that part of Namibia were scarce.
A small career change brought about an opportunity to manage numerous Communal and Government Hunting Concessions, geared mainly towards dangerous game hunting. It was then that the passion grew to eventually start his own outfitting company: ...Byron Hart African Safaris was conceived.
Byron is qualified to guide Dangerous Game; has a Private Helicopter license, and enjoys reloading, recurve archery as well as, reading about fire-arms and the classic safaris of yesteryear. His wife, Dr Karie L. Morgan, an anthropologist, originates from Michigan USA, and together they have a three year-old daughter, Adelyn.
