Springbuck / Springbok

The Springbuck is brown and white antelope-gazelle found in the South Western parts of Africa. Before the 1994 democratic elections in South Africa it was one of their national emblems. The South African rugby team still uses it as part of their emblem and are still recognised all over the world as the Springboks. The marsupialis epiphet derives its name from the pocket like skin flap that runs along the middle of its back from the tail onwards. Male animals trying to show their strength or to attract mates will go on a stiff-legged trot, while jumping in the air with and arched back and lifting the flap along its back. This ritual is known as stotting or pronking in the Afrikaans language.

Welcome to the SA Hunt and Game Website.

One of South Africa‘s true treasures is the abundance of wildlife it posses. This allows South Africans and tourists to visit Game Lodges and hunting farms to enjoy these treasures.

Conservation through sustainable usage is one of the most important reasons why such a wide range of wildlife is still available throughout South Africa.  The income generated by the hunting industry is used to help preserve this wildlife heritage.

The idea behind the SA Hunt and Game website is to provide a platform for hunters and wildlife enthusiasts to find a great hunting farm or game lodge to satisfy all their needs and enable them to experience this wildlife heritage first hand..

SA Game and Hunt aims to be you One Stop Wildlife site and also provide links to various other wildlife services.
