The Thormählen & Cochran Team

Professional Hunter, Peter Thormählen began his hunting career in 1996. In 2002, Charlie Cochran, a client, approached Peter with a partnership that became Thormählen & Cochran Safaris. T&C’s mission is to serve and provide our international clients a unique Classic African Safari. Thormählen & Cochran’s South African Operations are headquartered in the city of Nelspruit, Mpumalanga Province, and the Namibian Operations in the capital city of Windhoek.

T&C strives to employ only the best and most professional staff members, as well as to acquire exclusive hunting rights on excellent hunting concessions.

SOUTH AFRICA– Our Mpumalanga concessions consist of free range Government Parks where a variety of outstanding trophies can be hunted.  We also hunt in other provinces like KwaZulu Natal, North West (Kalahari), Northern Cape, Free State, and Limpopo concessions for trophies that do not occur in Mpumalanga.

NAMIBIA– Our 3 Free Range Namibian  Concessions give every hunter a chance to hunt trophies in their original, natural environment.  Every conservancy has its distinctive environment, own tribal community and quota list of trophies to be hunted.  Every concession has a authentic tented camp with en-suite bathroom.  The Caprivi (Kavango) concessions are known for its excellent buffalo, hippo and crocodile.  The Bushmanland concessions are famous for its trophy elephant and leopard hunting.

We love Hunting and Adventure, and we like to take care of our Clients
