Sabi Game Park is a hunting concession in Mozambique. 28 000 ha in size, it borders the south-eastern boundary with, and is open to the Greater Kruger National Park. A well-managed, scientifically monitored sport hunting operation generates the funds needed to sustainably run this property. These funds are also used to drive an aggressive anti-poaching operation and they are sufficient to support financially as well, the local community. Only when the local community comes to realize the economic benefits of wildlife conservation will it protect it. This is a concept which Sabi Game Park is in the process of putting into place and the results thereof are now being seen. This presentation gives the hunting operation's facts and figures and explains how, through strategic partnerships and community governance support, this conservation initiative is possible.


Presented at the 9th international wildlife ranching symposium: wildlife - the key to prosperity for rural communities, held on 12-16 September 2016 at Hotel Safari & the Safari Court, Windhoek, Namibia.
