1. Close to the end of a great season

It was just the other day when our hunting season started and now we are drawing near to the end. We have had a fantastic season with quality trophies and got to make a lot of new friends this season!


We want to thank everybody for their loyal support! 


Ten buffalo bulls have been hunted on Harloo this season, of which one was an all-new record bull of 44 inches. Our previous record at Harloo was 43 inches. See some new pictures of the latest animals harvested with Harloo Safaris..

2. Rhino poaching stats up until April 2019

Rhino poaching in South Africa is still a huge concern! 


2014 - 1028 rhinos poached country wide

2015 - 1054 rhinos poached country wide

2016 - 162 rhinos poached in KZN

2017 - 222 rhinos poached in KZN

2018 - 142 rhinos poached in KZN

2019 - 67 rhinos poached in KZN to date (1 Black and 66 white).

3. New record cape buffalo bull on Harloo

As you all know Harloo has exceptionally good quality Cape buffalo and with our last game count in 2018 we counted over 200 head of buffalo on Harloo. Harloo is approximately 10 000 acres in size and all these buffalo are free roaming on this land. The buffalo are all born and bred on Harloo. Some of these animals have never been seen before and this beast is one of these. The client wanted a buffalo bigger than 40 inches and he got this monster that measured 44 inches! An all new record and I am sure there are even bigger somewhere.

4. Vultures in danger because of poisoning for cultural beliefs

I  recently attended an IBA meeting where the issue of vulture poisoning was addressed. Vultures are being poisoned, in the belief that they have medicinal value as well as for witchcraft. The street value for one vulture is approximately $100.


What these criminals do is they will find dead animals and poison the meat. The next day they will come back and collect the dead vultures. In some cases over a 100 vultures were killed on one carcass. The IBA now is making a number of plans plans and measures to prevent the poisoning and to try and arrest these criminals.

Dear Friends  - In previous newsletters we have asked a big favour and we want to ask again that you please write something about your experience with us on http://huntingreport.com/enter-hunting-report/. Marketing is a very costly expenditure and business is tough with the political problems and the weak economy. For those who have already posted we thank you. It is truly appreciated!
