Buffalo Kloof Fair Chase Policy
Buffalo Kloof Hunting Safaris embraces the ideals and principles of fair-chase hunting. We pledge not to deviate from our belief that hunting shall always remain ethical and that the animal shall have a good chance of escaping. We undertake to uphold the highest standards with all our clients, and we encourage all who step onto the land to act toward it in a responsible and ethical manner.
We have been operating since 2000, and because of our sound principles and practices, we have taken our property from a simple beginning to a place where it has now become an iconic Eastern Cape safari destination. Our 27,000-hectare property (66,719 acres) is now a sanctuary to many, many animals. It is only due to our fair-chase ethics and principles that we have been able to move forward to the place where hunting and conservation work hand in hand to ever increase our animal numbers in a free-roaming environment.
We have brought the elephant back to the area after nearly two hundred years, and we are already seeing far-reaching and unintended benefits from our elephant-conservation program. After only a few years many of the area’s native plants have returned; these are plants that cannot germinate unless they have traveled through the enzymes in an elephant’s stomach. Thus, our approach to conservation is not only benefiting the fauna of the area but also the native flora.
Our black rhino antipoaching project is also gaining momentum. Our new antipoaching unit works in conjunction with the government and VETPAW.org to help stop the illegal trade in wildlife. We have also undertaken to mentor new rangers to assist in the everlasting fight against the horrific poaching crisis facing the planet today.
Buffalo Kloof Hunting Safaris is all about ensuring the basic rights of animals so that they can survive in peace and tranquility until they mature. All our staff and clients are asked to support our philosophy at all times when walking and stalking on the reserve. To pull a trigger when in a vehicle is simply not tolerated.
We are very proud of what we have achieved in such a short time. Our iconic property is now at the top of the tree, and our journey to this point has been predicated on our understanding of the interlocking nature of the fauna and flora that exist in our native ecosystem. We promise to persevere in our fight to preserve this delicate balance, and we are committed to continue our work as advocates for both conservation and fair-chase hunting.
