the past 5 few years I’ve been featured in the media around the globe such
as newspapers and websites ranging from Germany, Sweden, Belgium, China,
Japan, Vietnam, Canada, USA with ABC, BBC interviews as well as radio interviews
from Australia, New Zealand to Ireland and local T.V. interviews on SABC
& ETV regarding me in the run for the latest Tarzan film directed by
David Yates in 2016.
Me and my twin brother, Rudolf has made Tarzan short
films the past few years which has around 2 MILLION hits on YouTube!
Ever since I was 6 years old I fell in love the Tarzan character and then
years later around 2012 I’ve read that a new Tarzan movie was in the works,
so I immediately started making short films as my passion to become Hollywood’s
next Tarzan grew stronger. With Tarzan running wild in my head, I decided
to do Motivational and Environmental speaking at schools and universities
with Nature Conservation with the idea to enrich children through the concept
of intertwining education and entertainment which then gives you Edutainment.
International media took notice due to all the hype
around the Tarzan short films, with Japan coming to South Africa twice
to film me as Tarzan in a travel show along with an Asian TV presenter.
The latest was by a Canadian film crew filming a reality show for NETFLIX
called The Eccentrics, again focussing on my day-to-day Tarzan lifestyle.
Another highlight was an invitation to be the Special Guest as Tarzan at
the “TARZAN LORD OF THE LOUISIANA JUNGLE Festival” in Louisiana by Al Bohl,
and then later also for the DUM-DUM festival in Los Angeles, California,
USA during 2012. I’m also serving as the AFRICAN AMBASSADOR with CEO Dr
Ken Jones for a wildlife organization in California, USA, called “A-TEAM
FOR WILDLIFE” (http://a-teamforwildlife.org)
To further my career in the film industry, my twin
brother and I moved to Cape Town and got involved in the stunts, bit part
and picture double departments in BLACK SAILS, KINGS AND PROPHETS, DOMINION,
EMPIRE OF THE SHARKS and also horse wranglers on BBC TV series TROY: Fall
of a city. Something which I enjoyed as well was being a model and circus
performer as Tarzan on a world class dinner-theatre show called MADAME
I’ve spent several years growing up on game ranches
in Namibia and Botswana and have been to numerous wildlife reserves and
sanctuaries across Southern Africa. My love towards the wildlife and health
and fitness industry originated since school due to my father’s involvement
and I’ve been a fitness & wildlife ambassador ever since along with
my twin brother. During these years I was exposed to a variety of eco-tourism
related issues such as overseas tourists, trophy hunters and environmental
My head is a jungle and nature is so much a part of
me in my everyday lifestyle and I believe we all should strive to make
an effort to protect the last piece of nature which is left on earth. When
nature disappears in the world, the nature inside us will also disappear.
Stay hungry and become an eco-warrior.
