As a youngster Grant had the privilege of working as a labourer with a game capture team during school holidays where he gained an invaluable knowledge of capture operations and logistics.

In the late 1980s he joined the industry full time and co-founded a capture team that he managed for 5years.

In 1994, Grant and the late Jerry du Plessis started Tracy & du Plessis Game Capture CC. This company has grown to be a world leading entity. Grant continues to push the boundaries with his innovative approach in an ever-changing environment.

Today, Grant and Colette Tracy continue to run the company as a team, cementing relationships with many long standing and new clients throughout Southern Africa.

Colette has a diploma in horticulture and with many years of bush experience behind her, any game held in the bomas on the farm is in capable hands.

Rhinos Withour Borders

Great Plains Conservation and andBeyond, two leading conservation and tourism companies, have teamed up to translocate 100 rhinos from South Africa to safe havens in Botswana. Tracy & Du Plessis Game Capture have been privileged to be a part of this initiative.


African Parks

African Parks is a non profit organization that manages game reserves and parks in Africa. AP indentifies with conservation areas that they feel are in need of being protected to conserve the loss of bio diversity to the continent. Over the past few years Tracy & Du Plessis Game capture and Conservation Solutions have collaborated with African Parks to move large numbers of game into a number of different parks managed by African Parks in Malawi.

In 2016, Tracy & Du Plessis Game Capture, over the course of 2 weeks, captured & moved 200 Sable, 200 Waterbuck,, 100 Kudu, 25 Eland & 23 Zebra from Majete to Nkhotkhoto, situated 400km north. We then joined the Conservation Solutions team who were capturing Elephants in Liwonde, to capture and move 550 Impala, 200 Waterbuck, 200 Warthog and 100 Buffalo from Liwonde to Nkothkoto.

In 2017, Tracy and Du Plessis Game Capture aided in the further capture and movement of 200 waterbuck & 100 Impala from Majete to Nkothokhoto and 100 Buffalo from Liwonde to Nkothokotho.
