WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT

On duty for wildlife protection

Our goal is to protect KAMBAKU's ecosystem for the sake of the animals and plants and to keep it healthy in future. With a team of game wardens, biologists, professional hunters and field guides, this is our daily commitment.

 

Sustainable

SUSTAINABLE USE

For many years we have been pursuing sustainable game management to maintain a healthy balance within the reserve. This includes various procedures such as collecting verifiable measured values. We regularly carry out animal counts using elevated hides, microlight aircraft and drones. The tasks also include monitoring breeding and resting places, maintaining the roads and continuously clearing the landscape of encroaching bushes, so as to create space and light for grass and reduce the risk of uncontrolled bush fires.

DAILY ON DUTY

Our team of guides, game wardens and professional hunters patrols the reserve every day. They examine the game fences and clear traps set by poachers if needed. They provide the salt licks and minerals for the wildlife and check the pumps at waterholes that provide crucial water supplies to the animals, birds and plants. Their duties also include recording animal populations and unusual observations. By carefully regulating the density of game, they ensure game health and prevent over-aging and over-population, thereby also protecting the vegetation as a source of food and as a soil protector within the ecosystem. As a matter of principle, we only hunt at KAMBAKU to the extent that our nature conservation goals or the fulfilment of our ethical obligation towards the game require action.
