The last of the Great Pachyderms

There is so much that one could say about elephants that a few hundred words in an article can hardly do justice to these great animals. People have strong feelings and beliefs about elephants, maybe because they are the last of the great pachyderms and have suffered some of the worst slaughters that a species […]

The horses of witches

A small sliver of moon peeps through the dense leaf cover. Somewhere a shadow moves, stops, moves again and then emits a haunting whooooooop. Alone in the night amongst the mopane trees, the waterbuck bull freezes in his tracks when he smells the rancid scent of the ghostly beast. Is it really danger or is […]

Kobus is a great buck

The white ring on the buttocks of the waterbuck gives it the descriptive Afrikaans name of kringgat. It is indeed a beautiful and graceful antelope that sticks to the denser woodlands of Africa and it is always associated with water. Waterbuck are not aquatic animals but tend to keep very close to water and will […]

High up in the tree line

It runs with a stiff-legged gallop, is generally silent even when fleeing danger and can deliver a killer blow to a lion with its huge forefeet. Boasting with the title of being the world’s tallest animal, the giraffe must be one of the strangest looking creatures on earth and has fortunately stood the tests of […]

SA Hunters assists with added security as the SAWC’s K9 unit expands

The first of 20 new counter-poaching dogs arrived at South Africa’s OR Tambo International Airport from Texas, USA in July this year. Destined for the Southern African Wildlife College (SAWC), these specially trained, free-running pack dogs have joined the highly motivated K9 Unit handlers and are being deployed in counter-poaching operations in the Greater Kruger […]

Hunters Provide Water to Save Game in Mafikeng Area

At the end of 2018, hunters and their families from the Kameeldoring Branch of SA Hunters and Game Conservation decided to help clean up the Mafikeng Nature Reserve. While they were picking up rubbish, they saw several carcasses of young animals in the reserve. Rusty Hustler, the conservation coordinator for the branch approached officials from […]

Environmental Collapse of Cape and African White-Backed Vultures Fledglings in Southern Africa

VulPro, an NGO that works tirelessly to safeguard Africa’s vulture populations through rescue and rehabilitation, has experienced an alarming number of rehabilitation cases for the months of December 2018 and early January 2019.  Most of these cases have coincided with the fledgling stages of our endemic Cape Vulture (Gyps coprotheres) and African White-backed  (Gyps africanus) […]
