25 JAAR DIENS AAN DIE WILDBEDRYF

25 YEARS OF SERVICE TO THE GAME INDUSTRY

In 25 jaar het baie in die wildbedryf verander – of het dit werklik? Vyf en twintig jaar gelede was die konsep van volhoubare benutting van natuurlike hulpbronne relatief nuut. Dis egter ’n konsep wat WILD & JAG die afgelope twee en ’n half dekades benadruk het, met die waarde van jag as een van die pilare van die wildbedryf, tesame met teling, ekotoerisme, wildsvleis en verwante produkte.

Twenty five years ago, the concept of social media did not exist either, but GAME & HUNT has successfully integrated digital, social and printed media in order to reach a bigger market. This has increased our magazine distribution to more than 26 000 copies, 100 000 social media reaches with 50 000 video views monthly, and more than one million views on YouTube to date.

His consumer product background (managing over 1 billion in sales for Siemens) and his transformative success for the Zeiss organisation led him away from Zeiss to begin his own global business.

In Conversation With Angus Sholto – Douglas

First impressions always count. With the arrival of GAME & HUNT  at the Uplands Homestead Villa in Kwandwe Private Game Reserve in the Great Fish River Valley of the Eastern Cape, the sincerity of the staff who awaited us with a welcome drink and warm hand towels immediately reminded me of our reason for being there – an appointment with Angus Sholto- Douglas, or, as many people know him, Gus.
