                          Notes:

                          Where cattle ranching was our main activity through most of the sub-region in the past, game ranching is now taking on greater and greater importance. In South Africa for instance, game ranching is currently estimated to occupy about 5 million hectares, or 8.5% of the land area. As such it exceeds the area of land currently under state conservation. It is estimated that there are 5 to 8 thousand game ranches within the country.
