Markus Hofmeyr
Born in Johannesburg, Markus went to veterinary school with the objective of getting into wildlife. During university years he worked as a guide in Pilanesberg National Park and during holidays at various game reserves. After qualifying as a vet, Markus worked at a variety of practices and went to Canada for few months where he gained some North American wildlife experience. Back in South Africa, a stint in exotic animal medicine (dealing with birds, monkeys, and snakes) was an important step for him.
In 1995, Markus got his break in the wildlife industry when he was employed in Madikwe Game Reserve- where at that time the largest animal translocation in the world was taking place. In the five years he spent there, he gained a tremendous amount of ecological, veterinary, and management experience in wildlife translocations and the running of a large game reserve. From there he moved to the Kruger National Park where he currently holds the position of Principal Scientist- Veterinary Services.
One career highlight has been his involvement with the re-introduction of the endangered African Wild Dog into Madikwe Game Reserve. The experience gained with the work done in Madikwe has improved the knowledge of wild dogs, and has been used extensively in other introductions of wild dog elsewhere in South Africa.

Also on the helicopter flight, sponsored by South Africa's Peace Parks Foundation, was an excited Dr Markus Hofmeyr, head of Kruger's veterinary wildlife services.
He believes that the elephants are signalling each other that it is safe to return to their old stomping grounds in the Mozambican area now that the war is over and it no longer serves as a hunting place or as a "bush meat" abattoir for guerrilla fighters.
Most found openings in the high-security fence at river crossings, but Hofmeyr says one bull trundled for many kilometres along the fence until he was able to round it where it meets the Limpopo River border in the far north.
Other game, notably giraffe, buffalo, wildebeest, impala and kudu, have joined the elephants in crossing from Kruger through gaps in the fence, mostly at river crossings.
From the helicopter, fair numbers were spotted moving about in the unspoilt and beautiful Mozambican terrain of high-cliffed river gorges, valleys and rolling hills.
Hofmeyr says they, too, have probably been taking their cue from game translocated over the past two years by truck from Kruger into a 30,000 hectare enclosure in the Mozambican part to get them used to living on that side of the security fence.
