In South Africa an attempt to save, protect and broaden some of our most endangered species gene pool are happening. Most people don't agree with game breeding simply because they feel it's not a natural process. But if game farmers have not started to breed with game like Sable, African Buffalo and Rhino we would have not seen these animals in our nature reserves and parks. In order to create a bigger gene pool many game farmers have been relaying on other game farmers to produce simlar game in order to broaden the gene pools.

Wildlife farms can protect certain species that are in danger of extinction and to fill the demand for hunting, game meat, reintroduction to other reserves, game parks or/and other game farms. A few years ago (30 + years) many area's in the Limpopo province was mainly cattle and sheep farms. With the demand of protecting endangered species and hunting game farms became more in demand, old farms was bought. It was rehabilitated to it's natural eco systems and wild life that was previous hunted out in the area was reintroduced. But also animals that was on a serious declined like the out break of TB under buffaloes. The demand for TB free buffalo increased and more valuable than those with TB. Because TB spreads to big predators like lions it was the game farms that saved both species from dying out of such a common sight under cattle.

Mulati Safari Camp is situated on the Kilima private game reserve, a game farm known for their game breeding projects. Animals like Buffalo, Eland, sable and Nyala to name a few are being bred for various of reasons. The one thing that Mulati offers to the public that not most other game farms offer is to witness how game is being captured. The game capitive process is planned to every second and with back up plans. Since nature can not be boxed and wild life tends to be more stressed under these circumstances it makes the process much more intense. But witnessing this process gives one more clearity the why and the what behind rare game breeding.
