Meet The Team

Ricus De Villiers

Owner / Operator

After being introduced to hunting by my father at age 5, I had a passion for wildlife, hunting and the outdoors.

This sculpted the foundation of a dream and desire to become a conservationist and professional hunter in Africa.

In the year 2004, this dream became a reality when I founded White Lion Safaris as a hunting and photographic safari operation right here in beautiful South Africa.

Nelia De Villiers

Admin / Logistics

Born a city girl, I didn’t know an Impala from a Nyala before I married Ricus. I am pleased to say that things have improved since then I am the ‘Jill of all trades’ at White Lion Safaris’, making sure that the staff have what they need to do their job and helping out with admin and supply logistics.

When I am not driving Mom’s taxi, I make unique jewellery from spent bullet casings.

I am truly blessed to be a part of a team dedicated to making clients part of the White Lion family!
