Exotic breeding species
One of the main economic pillars of Groot Sleutelfontein Private Game Reserve is the breeding of exotic game species. These species add an unexpected twist to a normal game drive and an interesting flair to the veldt. The breeding program enables the reserve to function as an independent conservation entity, as funds gained from the program is distributed across all necessary areas of the reserve.
In the words of Piet du Toit, well-known breeder in South Africa: “The basic principle is to breed with the best genetics available to you – waiting in anticipation for the progeny to develop to their full potential. Thereafter eyeballing and selection through continued evaluation is vital.”
