SERVICES

 

Super Game Dealers (SGD) can assist you with variety of services. Our main service is the capture and translocation of all kinds of game species. We work with all kinds of plains game, but also have extensive experience with large and expensive game, such as sables, roans, rhinos and elephants. For capturing animals we make use of mass capture (boma) and/or dart immobilization techniques, as is required by the specific task.

On our YouTube channel you can find various videos about our work.

MASS CAPTURE

 

Plastic bomas are the most widely used method of mass capture in southern Africa, and can be used to capture most species. Our experienced team is able to build a boma in just one day. We carefully select the site to place the boma, thereby assessing e.g. vegetation, topography and wind direction. The main advantage of using bomas is that human-animal contact is minimized, and a herd can be captured and transported as a single entity.

 

 

DART IMMOBILIZATION

 

With Ulf Tubbesing, our former partner on board, we can offer you all sorts or specialized veterinary services, including dart work and consultancy. Dart or chemical immobilization of wildlife is usually reserved for expensive breeding stock and/or sick animals. Specifically selected animals are darted with immobilising drugs so that they may be handled, microchipped, treated and loaded for transport. Wildlife veterinary care includes:

  • Capture by immobilization.
  • Routine preventative care (vaccination, parasite control etc.).
  • Veterinary support for researchers.
  • Post mortem examinations for routine diagnostic and/or insurance purposes.
  • Treatment of (complicated) medical/surgical cases, especially for rare and valuable game species or where the risk of herd problems exists.
  • Temporary holding, quarantine, disease surveillance (for export) and treatment of captured game in our holding boma.
  • Providing specialized transport of valuable game making use of trucks equipped with surveillance equipment and veterinary stand-by.

TRANSPORT

 

Super Game Dealers has got its own trucks and trailers available for you. We have in total six specialized wildlife trucks. This is including a specialized rhino/giraffe recovery trailer. Our drivers have many years of experience with driving wildlife around Namibia, and abroad.

IMPORT AND EXPORT

 

Over the years we have gained a lot of experience with importing and exporting animals mainly from and to South-Africa and Angola. In 2017 we and the Herholdt Family Trust successfully exported animals into the Democratic Republic of Congo. Before exporting any animals, we conduct a comprehensive assessment of e.g. habitat, food availability, diseases, fences, species selection and possible problems to ensure the animals will thrive in their new habitat.

We can assist in arranging all the necessary permits for you.
