SERVICES

 

Super Game Dealers (SGD) can assist you with variety of services. Our main service are the capture and translocation of plains game species. For capturing animals we make use of mass capture boma and/or dart immobilization with the assistance of a wildlife veterinarian, as is required by the specific task.

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

MASS CAPTURE

 

Canvas 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

 

For specialized veterinary services, including dart work and consultancy, we will recommend a vet from the team that we work with. 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.
