Balule would like to extend its sincerest thanks and gratitude to the PT teams on Balule for working above and beyond the call of duty these past few days. Regular incursions and 20hr shifts. Not a single complaint and not a single member showed any sign of fading. And it was hot as all hell! Well done guys. We are grateful.

Protrack has been training recruits for the past 25 years and have had many success stories. In these 25 years many have failed to complete the course and many have strived forward. Some still work for Protrack to this day and some work in other parts of the country as well as the rest of Africa and the World. If you’re young, fit, passionate and determined then Protrack is the place for you!
Due to the security regulations of SA, if a person does not obtain a valid SA ID even if he is from a neighboring country such as Namibia or any other African country as well as Europe and the rest of the world, he may not work in the field and earn a salary or operate a weapon while on duty. This is simply the law and due to Protrack being a Private company we have to answer to the law.

It was a average day, I was at my parents office when my dad asked me if I wanted to go and see the black rhino that was snared. We went on a long long drive to see my first snared rhino and my first black rhino that I have ever seen, and it just had to be dead.Storm's first sighting of a black RhinoVIEW ALL POSTS
Three days ago, on June 20th, our team was called to check the carcass of a big rhino cow recently killed, and to rescue her calf and a young cow that had been wounded.VIEW ALL POSTS
Second time in a week that our team is called to check on a rhino carcass! The first thing that surprised us when we arrived was the position of the rhino. The animal was lying down with its front legs under its chest, it was as if it was sleeping. Then, when we looked for body injuries, we realised that the job that those poachers did, was very cleaned: the rhino had been killed with a SINGLE BULLET STRAIGHT IN THE HEAD!!VIEW ALL POSTS
