South African Adventures is a safari outfitting and guiding service company which offers you, the discerning client, a personalised service of the highest order while maintaining professional ethics and standards in exclusive adventure and discovery. As such, you are afforded the opportunity to undertake three very different safaris with me, Carl Stormanns, focussing on either a photographic adventure specifically designed to better your understanding of sustainable nature conservation principles and practices in Southern Africa or alternatively, a safari which affords you some of the finest salt water fly fishing or big game trophy hunting that Southern Africa has to offer.

Who is Carl Stormanns?

Carl is a South Africa born in 1961 of German descent, who qualified as a Professional Hunter in 1980 after which he accumulated a vast experience hunting the many animal species that occur in Southern Africa. Then in 1991 Carl became a safari outfitter and established his own hunting company, South African Adventures, which he still runs today and has grown to encompass saltwater fly fishing and nature conservation safaris. During the 1980's Carl wrote a B.Sc Honours degree in ecophysiology and went on to be employed by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research to assess the conservation value of wetland systems in northern Zululand. From this research (in part) these wetlands have been afforded formal conservation status as a National Heritage Site within the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park. Carl was conscripted into the South African Defence Force for two years during which he became a Lieutenant instructor and intelligence officer. Carl still trains members of the South African National Defence Force and is an Honorary officer of the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife service. Carl has served as an executive member on the board of the Professional Hunters Association of South Africa and has written many articles and publications on various topics of nature conservation, fly fishing, reloading, and rifle and shotgun shooting.
