Our various Lodge Management Services:

Making a difference

through our passion for wildlife

We are always willing to assist no matter what day of the week or time of the day. Nothing surpasses the feeling of being successful on a mission to rescue an orphaned rhino calf, relieving the agony of an animal with the burden of a cruel snare or fitting a collar to an elephant or rhino for research and protection purposes.

We are faced with many cases of rhino with gunshot wounds that need treatment. Together with experienced wildlife veterinarians, dedicated teams on the ground and support from the outside we are able to make a difference.

With many hours of flying experience

Experience through years of guiding and working with wildlife. Our pilot has a very unique skill set with many hours of flying experience and an in-depth knowledge of animal behaviour. We provide the following game capture services;

Mass Capture

A technique used where animals are herded into a temporary capture boma for relocation purposes.

Chemical immobilization

Through darting from the helicopter in conjunction with qualified veterinarians.

Net boma capture

Single or small groups of animals are driven into concealed nets where they are detained by a specialized ground team. Typical species would be smaller antelope like Nyala, Bushbuck and Reedbuck.

Game Management

Through many hours of counting game from the helicopter, we have developed an effective method and data capturing system.

Game counts should be done on a regular basis to determine animal numbers, sex ratios and species composition which enable reserves to develop and improve their management programs.

Safety first

Assisting with managing problem causing animals.

Whether it’s an elephant causing damage to infrastructure in a residential area, wounded buffalo dangerously close to a staff pathway at a lodge or lions that have broken out of a reserve, we are ready to assist.
