About Us

Barend Dorfling (Owner)

Barend Dorfling is a family man, outdoor enthusiast, adventurer, explorer, fisherman, conservationist, and distinguished professional hunter. He founded Hartland Hunting Safaris to empower the hunters and huntresses of this world to engage in the enchanting wilderness of Africa. Born in 1987, he grew up in Northern Namibia. His love for wildlife and nature started at a young age – 7 years old – when he first went hunting for birds with an air rifle. By the age of 9, with his brother by his side, he shot his first Kudu cow to harvest for food for his family using a .22 caliber rifle passed down by his Grandfather. Born into a family of hunters, he was introduced to the world of hunting by his Father who taught him the virtues and responsibilities of a strong ethical hunter. In his childhood, when he wasn’t playing “cowboys and bandits” with his brother he dreamed of working closely with animals never imagining that one day his two passions would collide – protecting the wildlife and the adventure of hunting.

Well-regulated, Selective and Ethical Hunting

We created the best possible conservation structure for our wildlife numbers to be able to grow...
