3      Game Counts

        The biweekly game counts will start on Thursday 7 September at 8.00am.  These regular counts are to provide a trend or pattern which is used for veld management purposes.  These are not accurate figures for animal populations.  All game counts are estimates only and provide the minimum numbers as it depends how far into the bush the counters can see and therefore how many animals are seen.

        There will be 3-4 people per vehicle and only animals seen must be counted and if possible male or female noted.
