Our Mission: ‘To Support and Assist Special Operations Veterans injured in action.’

Mission Madubula is a non-profit branch of Madubula Safaris that was formulated to honor and serve those who have served us. The founder and owner of Madubula, John Abraham, served in the South African military during the Border War on a small reconnaissance team. As a result, he has a great understanding and respect for those who have taken on a similar path.

At Mission Madubula we raise money every year for special operations soldiers who have been wounded in battle and take a few of these individuals on a fully paid for African safari – this includes flights, accommodation, trophy fees, taxidermy etc. We have teamed up with Kevin Holland (former DEVGRU and Special Missions Unit Operator) and Harry Bologna (former DEVGRU Operator) so that we may achieve this mission to the best of our abilities and for it to be done the right way. Both men have accompanied us on successful Mission Madubula safaris.

The aim is to take these individuals on a hunt of a lifetime, to work hard, and hopefully take home some amazing trophies. Our main goal, however; is to give back in some way to the brave men and women who have served their country at the highest level.

This mission would not be possible if it weren’t for the generous donations received every year and we would like to thank all of you who have helped make this a reality. If you would like to contribute to the cause please see our donation form below or reach out to lauri@madubula.com for more information.

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”

Thank you to all those who have served.

After three years of donating an African safari to two selected Special Ops Veterans to assist these fine men in a rehabilitation initiative to give them purpose, motivation, and a reason to continue –  we are back!

The pandemic prevented us from continuing with this project last year but we are ready to start again. Together with Kevin Holland and Harry Bologna, both decorated true American legends, we have set up a non-profit organization, Mission Madubula, so that all your donations are tax-free.

As a sign of appreciation for their sacrifice and dedication to keeping America safe, Madubula Safaris has committed to donate a full-service safari to two wounded Special Ops Veterans every year.  This will be our third year doing this for these brave Patriots.  The donation includes all the daily rates, staff, transport, services, and license fees for the safari PLUS  $5,000 in trophy fees for each veteran.  We have also managed to get LifeForm Taxidermy to donate the taxidermy for these brave men. Safari Air Cargo will donate the shipping and Scott Smout of Stealth Productions will donate a full safari video for each of them. A value of $40,000 for each veteran.

We now appeal to you for assistance to allow these brave men to have the safari of a lifetime by donating funds towards the trophy fees for them. You can do so anonymously if you like, or we can give you full credit for it.  Our goal is to raise $50,000 for them

Please let us know if you would be willing to contribute to this noble project. Below are two pictures and a short write-up on each of the heroes that will be the recipients of the 2022 Mission Madubula Safari.

Together let’s show them how great America is and how we take care of our own.
