What can you expect from an Anti-Poaching Unit?

  • Our anti-poaching teams generally work in teams of two, namely a team leader and a scout.
  • They are deployed for periods of anywhere from 4 to 16 days at a time
  • During their patrol they have supplies and equipment to ensure that they can remain on the property 24 hours per day, sleeping in the veldt and performing random ambushes and Observation posts. This in itself is an immeasurable deterrent to the criminal element.
  • Each team is armed with a firearm and are fully compliant and competent.
  • The teams will patrol the property, removing any old snares and searching for any signs of suspicious activity, such as infiltration routes, suspicious spoor etc.
  • The teams work with a GPS, marking waypoints & recording information such as snares found, infiltration routes, carcasses etc.
  • This information is compiled into a detailed report and data is gathered for our intelligence
  • If fresh snares are found, they will go into ambush in an attempt to catch the poacher/s when he returns to his snares
  • In the event of any incident, our anti-poaching teams all have radio/cell phone communication to our reaction teams
  • They are trained to assist with road blocks, tracking, search & arrest procedures
