About Dean




Dean Schneider

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dean Schneider is a Swiss wildlife park operator and social media personality based in South Africa.

Schneider studied finance and at age 21, became an entrepreneur and created his own financial planning company. After three years, he had fifty employees.

Schneider was a banker and financial planner in Switzerland before moving to South Africa in 2017 to establish a wildlife sanctuary and rehabilitation center, Hakuna Mipaka (Swahili for "no limits"). It is a 400 ha estate for lions born in captivity. A separate area hosts zebras, impalas, kudu, hyenas, and baboons.[citation needed] Before moving to South Africa, Schneider flew to Africa more than a dozen times to visit land, make contacts, seek sponsors, and develop a 70-page management plan while waiting for grants. Schneider shares, on social media, interactions with wildlife with the support of a personal assistant and a content manager. As of January 2020, Schneider has 6.2 million followers on Instagram. He spends up to seven hours a day on Instagram and answers approximately 800 comments and posts in different languages. Schneider is inspired by Steve Irwin to help people connect with wildlife.

In May 2020, The Times reported that Schneider is the subject of an animal abuse investigation by South Africa's animal welfare agency with regard to a video Schneider had uploaded of himself striking at one of his lion cubs with his fist after one of its claws caught on his shoulder. Schneider addressed the issue in a video on his Youtube channel on 1 May 2020, explaining that he slapped the paw of a lion in a video posted on his Instagram account after it clawed his cheek to show her "where the limit is". He stated that the media had taken this clip out of context and subsequently denounced the accusations of animal abuse against him as "fake information".











This Swiss Animal Lover Left A Well-Paying Job And Easy Life To Be With African Wild Animals


People adore wild animals and love them, but here’s an animal lover, who has made it his mission to bring animals into people’s hearts. And it’s really unbelievable what he did to realize his dream.

Dean Schneider, a 26-year-old Swiss, not only left his well-paying job but also sold all his belongings to move to Africa to be with wild animals. This move from the lap of luxury in Switzerland into the African animal kingdom amply proved his dedication to protect wildlife. Of course, he’s so right when he says, “We only protect what we love.”

This was Schneider’s idea to live his dream, the reason why he left his job as a financial planner in Switzerland, traveled to South Africa and set up the Hakuna Mipaka establishment. Incidentally, Hakuna Mipaka in Swahili means ‘no limits’. According to him, “Hakuna Mipaka is a way of living which originated from the five core values – freedom, loyalty, appreciation, brotherhood, and boldness.”

Hakuna Mipaka is spread over the 300-hectare estate and mainly caters to lions born in captivity. In addition, it also has a separate area for other wild animals, such as impalas, kudus, zebras, hyenas, baboons, and many others. He provides these animals an opportunity to live in freedom.

What motivated Schneider to take this bold step was his fascination for animals from his very childhood. He firmly believed that people should respect animals, their nature and their behavior. This is what attracted him to animal documentaries and drove him to make various animal protection organizations an important part of his life.

Once Schneider set up Hakuna Mipaka, he got down to understanding the nature of various wild animals that he encountered and tried to build a special bond with each one of them. Today, he educates people by revealing the beauty of these amazing creatures through his Instagram page, where he has over 570,000 fans.

As regards Schneider’s mission, he says, “My mission is to reach as many people as possible and educate them about the wildlife and the beauty of the animal kingdom. I believe in the power of knowledge, passion and visual stories in order to change people’s perceptions and save the wildlife.”

If you share Schneider’s passion for animals, you can also become part of Hakuna Mipaka family and work hand in hand with him in either recording videos as a videographer or giving a helping hand as a volunteer. For this, you simply need to visit his website.
