13th September 1993
A launch function formally proclaiming the establishment of the Selati Game Reserve is held at Henry Dunn’s camp, Willie, on the Selati River. Seven founder members, including current members Hall and Sons, Piet Warren, Henry Dunn, the Thomas brothers, and Piet Mare, sign the Constitution and shareholders’ agreements, formally bringing the reserve into existence. To mark this momentous occasion, the fence between the Willie and Arundel farms is ceremoniously cut by Bob Snaddon, Rob’s father and the previous MD of Hall and sons.
First general manager of Selati, Andre Scholtz, begins the work of removing fences and existing infrastructure on the individual farms. Additional white rhino and other game species are acquired from surrounding farms and the Kruger National Park (KNP).
