Jacques van der Westhuizen runs a 22 000ha hunting concession for Exxaro Resources on its Manketti Game Reserve in Limpopo. The concession, Jaquandi Safaris, attracts both international trophy hunters and local biltong hunters, and operates on the premise that hunting supports conservation. The mandate of the game reserve, which is near Lephalale, is to manage the land unimpacted by mining operations around the company's Grootgeluk mine. This is achieved through the application of best land-use practices that are beneficial to the company. "At Manketti, best land-use practices means conservation," says Marius Fuls, manager of the game reserve, who works hand-in-hand with Jacques to determine hunting quotas.
