At the risk of being howled down just I am sorry to bring up the discussion from a couple of years ago making tourists aware of some of what goes on in Greater Kruger.
The last discussion was titled Trophy Hunting in the Timbavati.
Not a popular subject but something some tourists may like to know, since many take an interest in the ''Big Tuskers"
For those unaware of this arrangement, the latest hunting quota application by Timbavati, Klaserie, Balule and Umbabat might come as a shock. It includes 193 buffalo (including 76 classic bulls), 34 elephants (including a super tusker), two white rhinos, two lions, two leopards (despite a national moratorium on hunting leopards), 29 kudu, 5,162 impala, 25 waterbuck, 10 hippos and a hyena, a giraffe, a zebra and a wildebeest. It also requests the capture of 30 white rhino and eight hippos. As in the past, many of the carcasses will probably go to Timbavati’s abattoir, which presently sells impala and buffalo meat
