kapama anti-poaching unit

Kapama Private Game Reserve protects the biodiversity on the reserve through the established Anti-Poaching Unit (APU). Head of security and head of the APU, Albie Nel, and his dedicated team patrols the high-risk areas of the reserve daily and conducts foot patrols in search of wildlife traps and poachers. In an effort to combat poaching, the Kapama APU has been using tracking dogs as part of its anti-poaching initiative. There are currently two male bloodhounds that have been trained to track poachers. These tracking dogs traverse the Kapama Reserve and surrounding areas. Kapama also works closely with law enforcement and supports anti-poaching units on surrounding reserves in numerous ways. It also conducts occupational safety inspections on a regular basis.
