Although the specials included a burger made from 'South African gazelle' (on other days you might find either ostrich, kangaroo, venison, bison, blesbuck, impala, kudu or springbuck!)

Nyala cows sold for N$25000, lechwe breeding herd between N$24000 and N$28000, impalas fetched between N$2715 and N$3150, both Hartman and mountain zebra family groups went for N$6000, giraffes around N$13000 per animal, blesbuck rams around N$1400, blackface impalas for N$10,000 each, and finally black wildebeest for N$4800 per animal.
We cull between 200,000 and 250,000 head of game, mostly springbuck, gemsbuck and blesbuck every year.
