Anti-poaching Unit

A crucial part in developing a Big Five game reserve, is a world-class Anti-Poaching Unit (APU).

With elephant and rhino on a reserve, an APU is up against fully financed and organized crime syndicates. It is critical to prepare and train rangers to contend with the high level of threat.

Ven-Africa has started to upgrade their APU structure with the construction of Ranger Housing and a dedicated base for operations.
