I interviewed three men regarding South Africa's Greater Balepye Nature Reserve:

  • Prince Dipati Benjamin Maenetja of the Greater Balepye Nature Reserve.
  • Louis B. Ebersöhn, CEO of African Wildlife Services.
  • Dr. T. Wayne Schwertner of Tarleton State University.

Louis started guiding safaris in 1994. Freelancing at first but soon started his own Outfitting company called Footsoo Safaris which was changed to Ebersöhn Safaris. He briefly stepped out of the industry in 2012 but in 2014 he stepped back in as African Wildlife Services, AWS (Pty) Ltd trading as:

  1. AWS: Aerial Wildlife Services
  2. AWS: African Wilderness Safaris
  3. AWS: African Wildlife Security

The AWS business model is based upon the guiding principles as described in “The Conservation Game: Saving Africa’s Biodiversity. By Gerhard R. Damm
