BOSCHNEL SAFARIS

Conservation

BoschNel Safaris would like to see the ecosystem prosper. The hunting we do is strategically planned years in advance. We only hunt older male animals that no longer contribute to population growth to ensure that we never put a species' population growth in harms way. Females are left to bare and care for their young. This also leads to other smaller animals to better fend for themselves. We also have a number of initiatives to help conserve wildlife, for example, feeding endangered rhino during the severe drought currently experienced in the Lowveld region.

For example, elephants tend to destroy trees throughout their lives. When animals are kept inside a fence they have a limited area in which to move. This leads to dramatic destruction of trees within the Kruger National Park. Without trees, birds would have no place to make their nests and lay their eggs. By controlling the population of elephants, we not only save the trees but the survival of the birds.

People tend to think that hunters "murder" everything that moves. Be careful not to take a hunter for a poacher. Take a bit of chance to read this article from Conservation Magazine (7 min read) entitled "Can trophy hunting actually help conservation?" and decide for yourself.

When you book a hunt with BoschNel Safaris, we not only assure you your true African Experience within the laws of South Africa, but the safety and well being of you and whoever might accompany you.
