22 Years ago today, Raymond started his relationship with the Kruger Family who own Leopard Hills.
Raymond started off as a young man working on the Ululapa Property for Louis Kruger, doing many and any odd jobs that came his way. He became an accomplished builder and a “jack of all trades” in the early years, working his way up into the Tracking Position.
14 years ago when we opened Leopard Hills, we were very fortunate to secure Raymond’s services with us here at the Lodge, I am sure Louis has still not forgiven me!!!!
Raymond’s knowledge of the bush is legendary and he has worked his way up through the ranks to that of one of our Senior Rangers. It has been such a joy for Louise and I to have worked with Raymond and to have had him as a friend over all these years.
Raymond we salute you and thank you for being the man you are, always setting the highest example to all around you, and for having taught me so much about the bush over the years we worked together as Ranger and Tracker.
I know I speak on behalf of the Kruger Family when I say the love and respect they have for you is not only genuine, but heartfelt.
The Picture below is of Louis Kruger and Raymond, Louis often tells me Raymond is like a son to him………he is family to all of us.
