After both Cliff’s parents left the police force in Southern Rhodesia, his father, Butch Walker, started hunting on a huge ranch in the South West of Zimbabwe. This is where Cliff’s experience of Safari life began.
At 16, Cliff left school to join his father’s company and start a 2 year apprenticeship, later becoming - at the age of 18 - one of the youngest people to obtain a full professional hunter’s license, as well as winning the award for the Best Professional Hunter in the proficiency test.
After 2 years hunting in the Zambezi Valley with his father, Cliff joined a larger hunting outfit, where he has since conducted Safaris in the following countries: Ethiopia, Cameroon, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, and Mozambique. Over the years, Cliff has guided clients to well over 122 different species of Game. To date, Cliff has taken 126 leopards and 66 lions. Cliff sits on the committee for the Zimbabwe Professional Hunters Association and is on the examining committee. In the off season, Cliff resides in Zimbabwe with his wife, Sharleen.
