Kruger Human is fifth generation of the Human family in South Africa . His great- grandparents moved into the Kalahari region of South Africa after the Anglo-Boer war.
They settled in this semi-desert thirst land area that is today known as the Kagalagadi Transfrontier Park between South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. They farmed with limited livestock and lived of the land by means of hunting wild game and birds.
Their small farmhouse built with limestone and thatched grass is today a museum in the heart of the Park.
Kruger grew up in a hunting- and fishing environment and inherited his love for wild fauna and flora from this rich family legacy.
As a child he hunted small animals and birds and shot his first antelope at the age of six.
Today he has fifty years of experience in hunting and fishing adventures. He has been involved in in wildlife management and conservation projects for thirty five years including twenty years as a Professional Hunter and Hunting Outfitter that includes a license in Botswana.
Krugertaxidermy is today a business, but Kruger still prefers to call it his wildlife art hobby and does not want the business side to dictate his passion for wildlife art.
With his vast knowledge of the Southern Africa Fauna & Flora, his wildlife and hunting “adventures” took him to Kenya, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana.
Kruger still hunts and fishes Africa’s wilderness areas, studies and conserves wildlife. His passion for hunting/fishing and conservation projects gives him a high level of knowledge of animals and birds to compliment his current full time profession as a Taxidermist.
His artistic talent and passion for wildlife started the hobby of taxidermy in 1997.
From 1999-2003 Kruger received training from one of the top Taxidermists in the United States of America. Bill Mason, owner of Mason’s Taxidermy in West Virginia, USA. Bill made sure that Kruger received invaluable training in the finer points of the art of taxidermy
