We are saddened to report that PH Erwin Kotze of Thormählen & Cochran Safaris was trampled to death by a bull elephant last week. He was 27 years old. Kotze was born in Rundu Namibia and moved with his parents northern Botswana where he grew up on a farm. He had been hunting professionally since 2006 and joined T&C Safaris Namibia Pty Ltd in 2008 as Master Hunting Guide. In 2009 he became a Professional Hunter and guided a big number of Namibian clients on plains game and leopard hunts.
