The Team Schoenfeld
Schönfeld maintains a high quality and personalized customer service. We strive to ensure you a memorable and enjoyable stay.
Elke and Hartwig are the third generation of the von Seydlitz family on Schönfeld.
Hartwig von Seydlitz is one of the pioneers of professional hunting and safari tourism in Namibia. Already in the early 1980’s Hartwig received his professional hunter’s license, and since 1982 Schönfeld has attended the most prestigious hunting fairs world-wide. Hartwig’s deep understanding of nature, his excitement for Namibia, and his extensive experience make Hartwig an excellent and successful hunting guide.
Elke von Seydlitz is an excellent hostess, enthusiastic about giving her guests a one-of-a-kind, first class, memorable experience. She makes sure that all the “behind the scenes” organization is running smoothly, so that guests can enjoy their experience to the fullest.
Anja and Stephan von Seydlitz are the fourth generation of the von Seydlitz family in Namibia.
Stephan grew up in Namibia and lives the passion of hunting. This passion is one of the keys that give Stephan the ability of giving clients unforgettable hunting memories.
Stephan has managed the hunting- and guest farm "Okapunja" since 2008, with his wife Anja, who is from the USA, and their two young children, Finn and Lena. He also knows Schönfeld like the back of his hand, and supports his parents whenever necessary.
Hilifa has mastered the art of tracking. He was raised as a shepherd, allowing him to honehis skills in tracking early in life. He has been with Team Schönfeld since 1985, and has since become an adept hunter, capable of all aspects of the trade.
Erassie was born to hunt. He has an avid passion for the sport, and has become an expert leopardhunter, taking an average of four per annum. He joined team Schönfeld in 1985, and is an indispensable part of our team.
Björn Kilian joined team Schönfeld in 2010. He is responsible for bookings and Schönfelds website.
He is also a passionate hunter, and after high school he pursued his enthusiasm for nature and hunting in Namibia with Schönfeld. During this time he learned the many facets about hunting in Namibia, as well as many things about the land itself. In 2011 and 2012, he assisted Stephan at the SCI convention in the U.S.
Johannes Milkereit has been part of the Schönfeld team since 1993. It all began with an unforgettable hunting and safari trip on Schönfeld. His enthusiasm for Schönfeld made him support Schönfeld in any way possible.
Not only does Johannes organize the booth for the hunting fairs in Dortmund and Salzburg, but he also organizes "Schönfeld-Evenings" in southern Germany and Austria. Since 1993, Johannes has been in Namibia multiple times and supported the von Seydlitz family faithfully.
This is the family von Seydlitz who grew up on Schönfeld. Although not the whole family lives in Namibia anymore, they all meet on Schönfeld regularly. At these times not only Hartwig and Elke (middle), and Anja and Stephan (left), but also Katharina, Esther and Michaela, will make sure you experience an outstanding stay on Schönfeld.
