Africa Futura Wildlife Restoration Lda is a Mozambican-registered company, operating in Coutada 5 in southern Sofala province (refer to the map). The company is primarily, as the name says, involved with the restoration of the depleted wildlife of Coutada 5.

The principals of the Coutada are Urs and Oliver Wettstein, two Swiss businessmen with a long involvement in wildlife ranching in South Africa, and more recently also in northern Mozambique in Niassa province. In developing Coutada 5 they are assisted by a number of South African and Mozambican specialists. The Management Committee, who is responsible for the day-to-day operations and planning of the Coutada, currently consists of Fritz van Zyl (South African), Pedro Nhampossa (Mozambican), and Prof Dr PC du Plessis and Mr AvW Lambrechts (both South Africans). They are assisted by Dr NHG Jacobsen, a biodiversity specialist based in South Africa.

He is a retired professor in Management Accounting at the University of South Africa, with more than 40 years of direct and indirect involvement in the wildlife industry in South Africa.
