I spoke to a lot of people before coming to put these collars on…
I must say I like the look of the Vectronics collar material. It looks better than the xxx belting and I think it will last a long time.

I hereby confirm that for at least the last ten years, The Johannesburg Zoo Veterinary Hospital, has been buying Dan-Inject products (darts, needles and their service accessories), as well as Pneudart products (rifle, darts etc.) from Global Supplies as well as other capture equipment. 
I am very satisfied with their service and know I can rely on Global Supplies to go the extra mile to assist where possible. I definitely recommend Global Supplies as our supplier of choice for wildlife products needed for captures.

What is very exciting to me about the Vectronics collar is the ability to record activity directly on the collar and detect mortality events based on activity alone.
Thank you again for the collar and so far it seems like it is performing very well

Atasja - Kwaggashoek Game Ranch

Feedback on the use of VECTRONIC iridium GPS collars to monitor Himalayan Tahr movement and behaviour in Table Mountain National Park.
The Table Mountain National Park purchased four VECTRONIC iridium GPS collars from their African Distributor - Global Supplies , based in South Africa, in 2019 with the objective to deploy them onto Himalayan tahr that occur on Table Mountain in order to monitor their movements and behaviour to inform management.
Since then three tahr have been humanely capture and fitted with the collars. To date I have found the collars to be exceptionally reliable with data collection, especially considering the rocky and mountainous terrain which the tahr inhabit, often making it difficult to connect to satellites. The collars fix success rate is excellent in comparison to similar collar makes on the market (some of which I have worked with before). The battery life has proved to very good, the vhf beacon and signal is strong and is easily picked up from the ground. I have also found after sales service and assistance from Global Supplies to be very good. Going forward these are the only collars which I would want to use, not only for their reliability but also for robust scientific comparability.
Deborah Winterton
Science Liaison Officer, Cape Research Centre, Scientific Services , SA National Parks

This letter serves to confirm that we have been using Global Supplies as suppliers of VECTRONIC
wildlife tracking collars amongst other wildlife management goods.
They have consistently provided us with excellent service and the products supplied have been of
good quality. Where any issues were faced, queries were quickly dealt with to our satisfaction.
We do not hesitate to recommend Global Supplies and Vectronic products.
Craig Reid – African Parks Network

Thank you very much for this extended and detailed information. It´s most appreciated.
Fabiola Quesada
Wild Spirit  - CEO


THANK YOU SO MUCH for your assistance and speedy responses.
Kate Church – African Wildlife Vets

I’m leaning towards Vectronics collars as well – one of our partners is more in favour of xxx, but I’ve had a very poor experience with them with a near 100% collar failure rate for my small carnivore work. Your experience and support is exactly what I’m looking for !

We have used both black and white rhino capture hoods for immobilisations. I have only good things to say about them, and they look much more professional than the good old towel that we typically use.

Thank you very much for your kindness and contribution to the welfare of Animals
Oageng Mosito - Outreach Unit ; NSPCA


There are many factors to consider other than cost including collar weight, collar lifespan, on/off switches, animal welfare and bulkiness of collar. It would seem that your collars score better in all these areas.
Paul de Montille – Zimbabwe

You even phoned me here in Zimbabwe and we had a great discussion about the Pneudart X-Caliber dart projector
After our long discussion and all the experienced advice, you so freely gave me about this delivery system, Global Supplies would definitely be my preferred supplier
Paul de Montille – Zimbabwe

My field of expertise is mainly invertebrates, with mammal experience very peripheral. I thus have no experience with any of these. I do have a qualified wildlife vet as part of the bat project, however.
Btw, I went to your website., and so glad I found this. You have an impressive CV in this field!
Tharina Bird - BIUST Campus Botswana

Dankie daarvoor. Ons stel definitief belang om van die Sirtrack collars gebruik te maak, aangesien ons huidiglik gemiddeld 8-12 maande maksimum leeftyd uit ons huidige collars kry.
Kobus Hoffman – Naánkuse

Dankie, jy is vining !
Jan Venter – Nelson Mandela University

Just out of interested and feedback for the yellow Miller prodders you supplied.
It must have been bought before 2006 when we got new trucks as it still has the old registration number on.
The extension is replaced but body still going strong after 12 years!
Lourens de Lange - Operations Coordinator ; Veterinary Wildlife Services – Kimberley

They are the best prodders ! We still have some original ones…

It was a great privilege to have you there. Your exhibition was excellent and added great value to the success of the conference. We trust that you will be awarded with a great deal of interest to enhance your business.

Thank you very much for the fast feedback and quotation. I am busy putting together a proposal for an Elephant translocation into a private 15 000 ha game reserve in the DRC. For them to better monitor the Elephants I believe it would be wise to equip the matriarch and dominant bull/s with your collars based on the excellent performance

Andrea – Champion Wildlife

Wow Jaco, those are amazing!
I really like that the height of the unit is substantially smaller than xxx units.
The xxx units give us a 3-5 km range and we frequently lose our pangolins and have to go up in an aircraft, so 10-12 km’s is amazing!
Prof Ray Jansen – African Pangolin Working Group

Thanks a ton for all this information. It has been extremely helpful
Olivia Sievert – African Parks Network

Thanks for all the information, really helped and appreciate you taking the time to go into more detail.

Earlier this year I saw the darts being advertised by the Global Supplies catalogue that was emailed to clients.
I purchased 20 type C slow release 1.5 cc darts with 1inch barbed needle with side port holes and started using them. I decided to do an evaluation on the following:

Stability and consistence of the flight
Setting of the gun for the weight of the loaded dart
Resistance to the impact
Inspection of the plunger to evaluate full discharge
Inspection of the outside of the dart for cracks
Bleeding at the site of penetration
Knock down times of the animals

With the new darts I have darted blesbok, wildebeest, some young buffalo and sable
The outcome is excellent:
Stable on flight - darted up to 40 m with great accuracy, consistence in all the shots.
The settings used of the gun was 2, 3 or 4 with green blanks.
Resistance to the impact – the darts worked well even with greater impact when used on young buffalo at a distance of 40 m
The plunger went all the way down the barrel of the dart.
The darts did not develop any cracks and the material and the needle remained intact.
There was much less bleeding from the point of penetration , this also improved drug induction . (As routine in all barbed darts I cut the barbs shorter to avoid the internal cutting of the tissues)
The knockdown times were very good , showing total injection and absorption of the drugs as a result
It is a great improvement on the previous 1.5 cc and we looking forward to have the technique available to a 2 and 3cc dart

Baie baie dankie – Jy is die beste este ooit !

From the DGR we would like to thank you and JJ for a very interesting and informative talk on the “ problem elephants”. Thanks for making time in your busy life and time away from your families. I think our residents realize now that there are many aspects that can have an influence on our elephant’s behaviour and that we have a responsibility when around them.
We are in the process of taking positive steps to mitigate this human elephant conflict and will also call upon you and JJ for further guidance.

The project is going well thanks and all Vectronics collars are working well. I recently contributed performance data from the Vectronics and other collars that we have deployed to a large scale research project on the use of satellite collars in wildlife research. Comparing the two, the Vectronics are much better performance (in terms of successful GPS fixes). I am still planning to write up a short piece on this for Africa Geographic or a similar publication….I just need more hours in the day!

On behalf of SA National Parks - Veterinary Wildlife Services, Team Ubhejane, it is noted with appreciation and humble thanks for your contribution to enabling our team to participate in Expedition Africa 2017 in the Baviaanskloof.
Team Ubhejane is about promoting a healthy, outdoor lifestyle and wellness amongst SANParks employees and inspiring passion for the environment in which they work, indirectly creating awareness about the plight of conservation.
Without partners like yourselves, participation in this event would have been much more challenging due to the nature of a multi-discipline adventure race and the costs involved.

JJ, on behalf of the SYMCO committee at Onderstepoort and all of our delegates, we would like to say a huge thank you for your involvement in our Symposium. We really appreciate all that you did.
It was a massive success and a life changing experience for all. Without your involvement SYMCO 2017 would not have been as great an experience as it was.
Thank you for being part of our darting day. Everyone really enjoyed doing some target shooting with your dart guns and found your talk very informative. Thank you for giving us this great opportunity.
Tim Everett - SYMCO 2017

Thank you very much!

From the DGR we would like to thank you and JJ for a very interesting and informative talk on the “ problem elephants”. Thanks for making time in your busy life and time away from your family’s. I think our residents realize now that there are many aspects that can have an influence on our elephants behaviour and that we have a responsibility when around them

Linda de Villiers

Thanks a ton once more for the tracking units – I owe you !
Bruce Dyer
Dept Environmental Affairs – Oceans & Coast Project

On the whole the Sirtrack collars have proven pretty reliable. I like the flexibility provided by the Iridium network namely that we can change data harvesting rates on the fly…
Dr Laurie Marker
Cheetah Conservation Fund – Namibia

As mentioned, I looked at various software in the wildlife industry, but most software are converted from normal farming activities and lack some of the essentials needed for wildlife breeding programs.
I already made the decision to purchase the GMS software, as this software, in my opinion, is miles ahead of the rest (I should not be telling you this I guess!).
Hein Gillen - Rietfontein

We received the darts in time, thank you very much

Baie dankie vir die goeie diens - ek het my darts ontvang.
Ben Olivier

Thank you for all your help
Bonny Lawson – Zimbabwe

I would definitely recommend the Xcaliber from Pneu Dart. It is by far the most accurate dart gun giving you good range (up to 60 m + with 2-3 cc darts VERY accurate and even 85 m shots very doable with the 1 cc darts). I get VERY good service from Global Supplies ( so would you ! )
Dr Ulf Tubessing
Wildlife Veterinarian – Namibia


Thanks for sorting it and washing the bag! The collars were well received in time.
Dr Rosemary Groom – African Wildlife Conservation Fund

Just wanted to confirm that our new dart-gun has been delivered. Thank you both very much for all your help. Was good doing business with you !!

On behalf of everyone here at the N/a'an ku se Foundation I would like to extend a massive thank you for your support.
Without the support of companies such as Sirtrack and Global Supplies and individuals such as yourselves who work for them we would not be able to achieve as much as we do and both conserve animals for future generations and collect vital research data. Thank you!
Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to working with you !
Gemma Marshall
N/a'an ku se Foundation

On behalf of Minister Edna Molewa and the Department of Water and Environmental Affairs, I wish to thank Global Supplies for your participation in the recent series of Rhino Issue Manager Dialogues.
Your time and commitment to the sustainable conservation and management of our rhino population is greatly appreciated.
We hope and trust that our dialogue with you will continue in coming months and that collectively we will make a meaningful contribution to the long-term sustainability of our Rhino.
Fiona Mfeka
Administrator: Rhino Issue Management

As mentioned, I have been dealing with Global Supplies for many years and only ever received reliable, top class service and product. They provide a wide range of products and services tailored to the wildlife industry. I believe this company could prove equally useful for MET with its ambitious plans for the near future.
Dr. Ulf Tubbesing (B. V. Sc)

The notching and fitting of Horn Implant transmitters in the Park went really well. We managed in 2 days to do 10 animals (8 of which we could put transmitters in).The transmitters were perfect and straight forward to use. We checked the signal from some of the animals we did from the helicopter before we left and they were all working, giving a good strong signal. Follow up on the ground has also shown these to be superior…
