Paul was instrumental in building up one of the largest private game reserves in South Africa (over 250,000 ha) called Tswalu Game Reserve and Tarkuni Hunting Estate in the Kalahari.
Paul says “I believe that conservation owes so much to the hunter who has been responsible for millions of acres of privatized land which has been set aside for our flora and fauna - I will continue on its path to ethically and very selectively remove non productive animals to maintain a good balance in our eco-system and sustainably utilize these populations.”
