  • 40% of the proceeds of all game sold on the auction are due to African Wildlife Auctions and AWA Game Capturers.
  • 60% of the proceeds of all game sold on the auction are due to the game farm owner.

This quotation is based on the principle that all game captured are sold on auction at African Wildlife Auctions’s boma in Vaalwater.  The responsibility for capturing the game, transport to the boma and all auction costs are the responsibility of African Wildlife Auctions and AW Game Capturers. All costs related to the auction from the feeding in boma to catalogue preparing and marketing of the auctions is all the responsibility of African Wildlife Auctions and AWA Game Capturers. The game farm owner or seller nets 60% of the return of the game sold on auction with no other cost payable at all by the seller or game farm owner.

  • Payment of the 60% will be made to the seller or game farm owner within 7 days after the auction.

Pricing for game based on a profit sharing principle (70% and 30% respectively)

The profit is shared on the proceeds of the auction held for the specific game based of the following percentages:

  • 30% of the proceeds of all game sold on the auction are due to African Wildlife Auctions and AWA Safrican Game Capturers.
  • 70% of the proceeds of all game sold on the auction are due to the game farm owner.
  • The game farm owner shares 70% of the upside of the game prices achieved during the auction. For game prices achieved during 2014 at African Wildlife Auctions auction’s go to wildlifeauctions.co.za and go to the Information and Articles tab. These prices are substantially higher than the pricing offered for the game on the Veldt.

The game farm owner or seller is responsible for the payment of the helicopter fees during the game captures. The helicopter cost is additional to the seller or Game farm owner’s cost and this is the only difference between the 70% and 30% profit sharing principle and this quoting principle.

All other principles are 100% similar except for the helicopter cost for the period required to capture the game.

The four different quoting options are design to give flexible solutions to the seller or game farm owner and also allow them to decide what risk and reward they are prepared to take to maximize their return. No other industry player are offering these solutions and these different offerings are a first for the wildlife and game industry.
