Game Safaris

Born to Hunt

Our Family

Tommie and Lecia Steele, the proud owners of Steele Game Safaris.

Tommie, who hunted his first animal at the age of 5, has been working in the hunting industry for the past 13 years.  Lecia has hunted with her father from a young age and is also a qualified and registered Professional Hunters (PH). Hunting, farming, fishing, outdoors and wildlife conservation runs strongly through our veins and is our ultimate passion. As a Christian family, we have high standards, values, empathy and respect for our fellow man and nature.

Our motto is to always strive to be the best, giving clients an experience of a lifetime, and not only take from nature but also give back.

We live by Phil 4:13 “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” Our boys, Taylor, aged 12 and Samuel aged 9, are both young PH’s in training, and clients with children as young as 5 have hunted with us as a family. Sharing our passion with our clients is a privilege and we strive to take our role in the industry to the next level.

10 Commandments of Hunting

  1. There is only one rule in the field: ONE BULLET, ONE ANIMAL. Hunters don’t waste cartridges, don’t play around and realize that the best way to meet your biltong needs is to make the shot yourself. No dry biltong/jerky is tastier than the one you took care of yourself.
  2. You must NOT BOW DOWN to any idol. Booze and guns don’t mix. If the carcass hangs and the guns are in the safe, then refreshments may be enjoyed.
  3. You shall not use the name of hunting in vain. If you don’t know anything about hunting if you’ve never taken a shot yourself, if you’ve never been part of the wonderland. DON’T CRITICIZE. Hunting is not just a sport. It’s not just for fun and the trophies. Hunting is for conservation, number control, respect and food.
  4. REST ON THE SEVENTH DAY. Hunters are not gun-crazy Rambo’s who kill everything that moves. There is a season for hunting and a season for gathering. Hunters also appreciate the tranquillity of the bush and can sit for hours watching kudus lick salt and pigs roll in the mud. It’s about so much more than just the shot.
  5. Honour the Father and the Mother. An old bull is rescued from loneliness because he was kicked out of the herd, while the young cow and her calf are looked after. No animal is “just” pulled down. JUDGMENT AND CHOICE and logic are exerted before each target.
  6. DON’T KILL. Poachers are not hunters. Poachers kill for a senseless existence and to supply the Chinese’s impotent lies. Hunters use nature to provide food, show off the majestic animal kingdom and also help with the conservation of certain species.
  7. Do not commit adultery. Don’t try to hunt a lion with a knife. Nor an elephant with a .22.
    Let your CHOICE OF WEAPON be suitable for your purpose, so that the wedding may take place without any divorce or strife.
  8. Don’t steal. Not at the neighbouring farm. Not with your fellow hunter. Hunters do not steal animals, guns, cartridges or even a beer. Hunters ask. Hunters share. Because HUNTERS RESPECT THE BOUNDARIES.
  9. Do not bear false witness. Unlike some anglers, the buck’s horns usually stay the same size. The distance may change by a perceptual meter or two, but hunters tell with tears in their eyes how they once wounded a kudu bull. TRUTH IS VALUABLE. The turning of each horn becomes a science, often a bet, but always a matter of camaraderie.
  10. Do not desire. Not your fellow hunter’s wife, gun or perfect shot. YOU HUNT FOR YOURSELF. Your own spotless record. Not for the admiration of others. All that remains is the ongoing appreciation for the ART OF THE SHOT.
