About Us

WildlifeAuctions.co.za website has been developed to facilitate transactions between game dealers, game farmers/sellers, game buyers, hunting farms and hunters by creating a portal platform for buying and selling of Wildlife and hunting packages online on the web at reduced risk and at substantial lower costs than well-known traditionally live game auctions to the seller. The WildlifeAuctions.co.za website is the first of its kind in South Africa facilitating in the interactive buying and selling of game and hunting packages. The website has specifically been d to assist the game industry in reducing the risk in the buying and selling of game by reducing the physical interaction with the game and reduce the multiple transport of game in comparison with known processes of live auctions. Wildlife and game captured for auctions only needs to be moved once directly from the seller to the buyer without passing through holding cages as in the case of live auctions. The website also s a medium for hunters and game farm owners to sell hunting packages without the involvement of a middle man or agents.

Our mission is to offer the wildlife industry and our customers an online auction experience that is user friendly, feature rich and have relevant information about the industry available online to assist in keeping users informed on topics and info related to the wildlife, game and hunting industry. WildlifeAuctions.co.za will become known as the online auction website for the industry and will become synonymous with the wildlife and hunting industry in South Africa and the rest of Africa.

 Wildlife Auctions will also assist and facilitate the sale of wildlife for game farmers with no game capturing infrastructure. In essence wildlife can be listed by game farmers and that the prices do not include the capturing, transport and permits on the game transaction. These specific wildlife is then available for bidding by game dealers and game capturers or any person who can facilitate the process of capturing and transporting of game. The prices on these animals will clearly be much lower as the wildlife on the fully inclusive listings. It will be the successful bidder’s responsibility to capture the animals and transport the game to wherever the successful bidder is. The prices for this wildlife will always be per unit.
 
The website’s main aim is the following:
-          Create a platform for facilitating the buying and selling of  wildlife in Southern Africa;
-          Create a platform for facilitating the selling hunting packages to hunters in Africa and the rest of the world;
-          Create a portal with relevant information and topics in relation to the industry such as:

·         Information on permit requirements for the game industry;
·         Statistical information on game prices for the last 10 years;
·         Information on Nature Conservation offices;
·         Information on transport and capturing services available in South Africa.
-    Create links to all relevant websites in the industry such as:
·         Wildlife Ranching(WRSA);
·         SACFA;
·         WTA;
