Provincial Clubs

Mpumalanga Falconry Club

Founded in 1995, the Mpumalanga Falconry Club (MFC) is a dedicated community of falconers. The club, which started with 10 members, has maintained a small but active membership with some great birds being flown.

Eastern Cape Falconry Club

The Eastern Cape Falconry Club was established in August 1994 by two passionate falconers. Initially members of the Western Cape Club, they played a significant role in legalizing falconry in the Cape Province.

The Boland Falconry Club

Established in 2003, the Boland Falconry Club (BFC) emerged from the Cape Falconry Club, making the Western Cape the first province in South Africa to host two falconry clubs under Cape Nature’s auspices. The club transitioned from an association membership format to a contract-based membership in 2007, aligning its operations with other paid membership clubs and organizations.

Cape Falconry Club

Established in 1991, the Cape Falconry Club (CFC) was created due to a desire to practice it legally in the Cape. The club’s founder, who arrived in the Cape in 1986, worked tirelessly for four years to gain the support of Nature Conservation, promising valuable data collection and scientific contributions. The club’s efforts led to the legalization of falconry in the Cape and the issuance of permits to take birds from the wild for falconry.

Natal Falconry Club

The Natal Falconry Club (NFC) is more than just a club; it’s a community that extends beyond the sport of falconry. Members have shared in each other’s joys and sorrows, from weddings and baby showers to lost birds. Many of the members are lifelong falconers and have flown some great birds.

North Eastern (Limpopo) Falconers Club

The North Eastern Falconers Club (NEFC), founded in 2015. The club’s establishment followed the disbandment of the Limpopo Falconers Club (LFC) in 2012 and years of discussions and input from various falconry and nature conservation enthusiasts.

Transvaal Falconry Club

The Transvaal Falconry Club (TFC), established in 1985, has a rich history of fostering the art of falconry.  Field meets have always been the highlights of the falconry year. For many years, these meets were held in Dullstroom, providing some of the finest hawking venues imaginable. Those who braved the cold nights at the AGS Kampeerterein Belfast, will have fond memories of superb longwing and shortwing hawking. 

The Free State Falconry Club

In the mid-1980s, a group of school boys at the Free State University started practicing falconry and the official formation of the Free State Falconry Club came shortly after, marking a significant milestone in the region’s falconry history.

If you’re willing to put in the effort, then a bird is definitely for you.
