Craig Murton – Australian Booking Agent
Born & raised on Kangaroo Island off the coast of South Australia, Australia. Being 1 of 7 children born into a commercial fishing family living in a country area meant fishing and hunting was a regular pastime. Over the years he has hunted widely across Australia and overseas.
Deerstalking is his passion, fallow deer particularly and he never tires in his pursuit of the hunt.
As a mature aged hunter and with 4 decades pursuing game under his belt Craig is branching out into other aspects of the hunting industry, becoming a hunting outfitter agent in Australia. This will not only keep him in the field doing what he loves, but also opens up new and exciting avenues into the sport he is so passionate about.
He will assist with the following:
- Help you choose the best hunting package to suit your wishlist & budget
- Book flights to and from South Africa
- Transport to and from the farms
- Importation of firearms and ammunition

Meet our Skilled Trackers
Munsu, Frikkie, Samuel & Chiko
Our skilled trackers will drive the hunter and the hunting guide where they need to be, then they will be on standby until they are needed to help track an animal, or to fetch the client. They will also do the skinning, so that you can relax back at base. They undoubtedly have skills that cannot be taught, their senses in the bush are just on another level.
