Safari Business

Kanana Safaris operated on farms 24, 25, 26 and portion 1 of 142NK which are contiguous and an area of 18092 Ha

The external boundary of the farms is game fenced; there are no internal fences.

Kanana Safari’s business was primarily safari hunting. Photographic / eco clients were accommodated out of the hunting season generally October through to April.

Further income is was derived from meat and live animal sales.

 

Species

See the game section – link for the larger species, in addition there are numerous warthog, duiker, steenbok, jackal etc. plus a healthy population of cheetah and leopard and other predators.

Kanana holds ideal habitat for white rhino and our population was 19 + before the shareholders took them off, because of potentially attracting unwanted attention of poachers, although no incident had occurred.

 

Motswiri Lodge

The lodge can accommodate 14 people (7 x doubles) in luxury and is rated as 3* by the Botswana Tourism Authority.

It comprises 7 accommodation units, these are constructed using traditional safari materials i.e. canvas and thatch, all are main-en-suite and each unit is positioned to ensure individual privacy.

There is a large thatched dining room / lounge which overlooks a calcrete pan, a boma where evening meals are usually taken alfresco.

Close to the accommodation but far enough away to minimise disturbance is a skinning shed and trophy store.

The usual and necessary service rooms such as kitchen, pantry and stores and staff accommodations are all in place.

The Lodge is serviced by a solar powered borehole and is backed up by a Lister / Mono powered borehole for overcast days or when more water required.

 

Hunting

Kanana Safaris has a well-established name. The trophy safari clientele were predominantly from USA but some clients from Europe, Australia and southern Africa. Our so called “biltong” hunters are generally from Botswana and South Africa.

 

Water and hides

There is a comprehensive series of waterholes throughout the game farm. These are mostly Grundfos solar powered.

There are five bow-hides developed with the help of American outfitters and to their specifications. There are three elevated hides overlooking waterholes.

 

Outlook

In the 2013 hunting season the company turned over in excess of P 4 million from hunting and meat as it’s a US$ based business, turnover increases in BWP terms due to the general decline of exchange rate.

 

 

This information is indicative game numbers would be counted and valued accurately in the event of a sale it is based on a comprehensive count performed by Kalahari Game Services in June 2013.
