To appreciate South Africa’s game breeding potential, consider these statistics:

Pre-1994, the number of commercial farmers declined from 60 000 to an estimated 37 000 by 2012. Game ranchers, however, increased from 9 000 before 1994 to more than 15 000 in 2015.

An estimated 40.5% of all commercial farms participate in wildlife ranching in one way or another, aided by increasingly industry-friendly agricultural and environmental policies.
