About lisa & Wes - proprietors

Lisa & Wes, residents of Cave Creek AZ, have been married for over 25 years and have 2 sons, Josh and Dakota. Wes grew up hunting in Wyoming with his father, while Lisa grew up in Kansas, never having done anything like it. She has come to love the sport and enjoys this time with the family and with the clients. They believe that hunting is one of the best ways to spend time with their family and enjoy all God’s creations.

When Wes and Lisa went to Africa in 2009, it was a nerve-racking decision but an exciting prospect. The first thing they wondered was if it was affordable and were pleasantly surprised when they found out that it was. After the first trip, Africa was ingrained in them. The opportunity arose in 2012 to assist their friend and PH/Outfitter, Kevin Brits, with starting an outfitting business. 

In true Wes and Lisa style, they took the ball and ran with it. So, in 2012, while on a hunting trip they took time to check out some properties. Wes and Lisa were blessed to purchase a reserve the Limpopo province of South Africa, in the beautiful Waterberg mountains. They spent the first year building chalets, erecting safari tents, boosting the animal population, preparing for TDK Safaris’ endeavor.

Their love of Africa and the wonderful opportunity to share the African experience with others gives them great joy and they strive to make South Africa Safaris an experience of a lifetime for all their clients. Hoping to instill in all those who book with TDK Safaris, the same love of Africa that they have come to know.
