About Us

Dear Guest,

The dream of Oryx Safari began in 1997, after my first hunting journey to South Africa, where I then discovered that Africa ran in my veins. Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to travel to this magnificent continent seeking new adventures, and as a result have managed to establish a large network of friends and colleagues in the safari business.

To give you a bit of history, in 2004, I took my very first client on a safari. In 2006, I completed my Professional Hunting course and registered Oryx Safari as a business in Norway. In 2009, after settling in South Africa, I married my wife and began to devote myself to the safari business. As a South African herself, my wife has also worked for a well-known South African safari company for several years, focusing on hunting safaris to Mozambique and South Africa. From 2009 – 2016, I have guided safaris in South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe before moving back to Norway. For the last few years and due to the constant longing for Africa, I have continued to arrange hunting safaris for my clients with colleagues.

It is important to note, that when you decide to book a safari, you need to trust that you have come to the right place. This means that all should be taken care of to ensure you have the best hunting adventure, from the moment you dreamed about the hunt, up and till the trophy hanging in your trophy room. With our knowledge, experience and hand selected hunting areas, we guarantee to give you the best opportunity in achieving the hunt of your dreams. We quality test all our safari destinations with personal visits, so you know exactly what you can expect in terms of service, accommodation, competency and trophies.

For most people, a hunting safari is something that requires a lot of planning and saving up, but it really does not matter how much money you spend- it is the experience and memories that count. Our goal is for our clients to be utterly satisfied- we want you to be dreaming of that next hunting expedition on the airplane back home.

We therefore strive to give you personal, dedicated service and follow up on your safari. I will happily be your personal guide for the duration of the safari, arranging collection and drop-off at the airport too. Alternatively, I can also arrange a journey with my local, trusted colleagues who will have the pleasure of guiding you through the safari from start to finish.

If you are a first-time or experienced hunter in Africa, Oryx Safari can and will customize a safari to suit you and your needs. Perhaps you would like to combine the hunt with game viewing, other adventures or even to bring your family for the experience of a lifetime? Feel free to contact us, and together we can find a safari that will suit your needs now or in the near future.

We do hope that you choose Oryx Safari as your preferred safari agency for hunting and adventure in Southern Africa.

Best regards,

Lorette and Endre O. Teigen

"All I wanted to do now was get back to Africa. We had not left it, yet, but when I would wake in the night I would lie, listening, homesick for it already."
