Great Loss for Elephant Coast

MEDIA RELEASE No: 2007 - 02
For immediate release
auction one...
The annual Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife Game Auction will take place at the Imbizo
Assembly at the Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom, Sibaya Drive,
Umhlanga Rocks, just north of Durban, on 19 May 2007 starting at 11.00. The
move from the traditional venue in the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park was a
pragmatic business decision to maximise the benefit derived from the auction
and to reduce the high cost of staging the event in the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi
A certain number of white rhinos and nyala will be on display at the Game
Capture pens in Imfolozi as usual and buyers may view them from 10.00 to 15
00 on Friday 18 May 2007.
Buyers who would like to view these animals are strongly advised to book
accommodation at the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife Hilltop Camp in the Hluhluwe
section of the Park or the self-catering Mpila Camp in the Imfolozi section
for the Friday night, as this will give them ample time for the two hour
trip from the Park to Sibaya Casino and Entertainmment Kingdom just outside
The Game Auction, which will retain the traditional big screen to illustrate
the various animals on offer, will be run mainly as a catalogue auction,
with the exception of the few white rhinos and nyalas that will be offered
on live sale.
The Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom is about 20 minutes drive from
Virginia Airport and about 30 minutes drive from Durban International
Buyers arriving at Durban International are asked to make their own
transport arrangements to the Casino.
Buyers wishing to arrive at the Casino by helicopter are asked to make their
own arrangements with the Casino management on telephone number 031 580 5504

Buyers who have further queries or requiring to be collected from Virginia
Airport, are asked to contact the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife auction organiser
Rahman Devduth on 082 898 5306, telephone 033 845 1717, or email
Members of the public are welcome to attend this fascinating and unique
