Bush & Plains Game

Hunting for food has always been and continues to be an important aspect of life in rural African hunter-gatherer communities. Communal conservancies utilise wildlife sustainably, which includes the harvesting of meat through the sale of hunting safaris, which is intrinsically based upon researched quotas and regulation.

Wildlife populations have increased where the guiding principle is - if a resource has value, people will conserve it.

Fortunately, thanks to the many conservation benefits that stem from well-regulated management hunting, populations of most species of game in Africa are thriving.

Kenya has lost, on average 68% of her wildlife since banning game hunting in 1977, though not attributed totally to the ban, it shows the conservation value, well managed hunting contributes. 1

It goes without saying, that all the hunting concessions we use are managed under sustainable-use wildlife conservation programmes - where scientific, evidence-based population surplus quote is issued, per species.


In-turn, this surplus can be ethically harvested, to benefit the local people, through employment and game utilisation i.e. game meat, skin etc., and a sustainable ‘net biodiversity gain’ can be achieved for the ecosystem.
