A Rich History of over 55 Years
The Hurt family first came to East Africa by Ox wagon from South Africa in 1904. Our ancestor, Daisy Griffin developed a reputation as a fine huntress, protecting the Oxen from marauding predators and providing game meat as they travelled the perilous journey through the African continent. When Roosevelt journeyed to East Africa on his first hunt, Daisy was there to greet him as he crossed the Great Ewaso Nyiro river.
Robin's father, Lt Col Roger Hurt D.S.O., continued the family legacy as a Game Warden in Kenya in the early 1900's. As a teenager Robin Hurt assisted his father with game cropping and problem animal control, gaining experience and a passion for hunting and adventure. Robin Hurt was first licensed to hunt in Tanzania in 1964 and over the last 55 years he has guided safaris across the finest game fields of Africa.
Following in the family tradition, Robin has passed down his passion and knowledge to his sons, Derek and Roger. They both started hunting in their early childhoods, growing up on safari in the African bush. Derek and Roger Hurt have been involved in the family business for the past few decades guiding hunts across Africa, before taking over the running of the company when Robin moved to Namibia.
We are proud of our reputation and expertise. A safari with Robin Hurt Safaris is a memorable experience, a vintage adventure underpinned by five decades of experience, reliability and a profound understanding of the African wilderness.
“ The one time I hunted with Robin Hurt, he brought an intensity and focus to the hunt,
the likes of which I have never seen in any of my more than three dozen African safaris.”
Al Cheramie, Former President of Safari Club International
