Amazing what they do here for animals

We learned so much about animals of this area. Love that is going towards animals here is stunning. Their "tour groups" were on time that is outstanding for Africa-time

If you are around Hoedspruit it would be a shame not to visit Moholoholo Wildlife Rehab Centre. I thought I know a lot about wildlife but learned that I by far do not know enough.

I have previously visited Moholoholo but this year decided to take my young nephew while we were over from the UK on a family visit. We were not disappointed! The tour guides were knowledgeable and attentive. They moved us along efficiently, I can see why some people may think it's rushed, but it was just the right speed for us... More

Maybe they are doing a good job environmentally but when compared to other similar public facilities Moholoholo seems a little haphazard and amateurish. The chap who handled the intro and the 'meet the cheetah' was good but our guide thereafter spoke in parrot fashion and had difficulty answering questions.

This centre is not to be missed if you are travelling in the area. It is the home of the famous (on u tube) honey badger called "Stoffel" who is a living Houdini. The centre cares for many injured animals which are released back into the wild if at all possible. Visitors get to interact with vultures and other birds... More

Although a few years back my family spent a pleasant afternoon watching people share their love of nature. Greatest moment for my eldest son was the vulture landing on his arm. The photography was exceptional as one could view all the birds at close quarters. One gains respect for the animals as you learn about their behaviour.

Here you get to see animals that have been rescued ie orphans and animals that have been hurt but are mending getting ready for release back into the wild. We got to stroke a cheater. If you get the chance to go dont hesitate its a brilliant experience.

We visited Moholoholo one morning during our trip to Vuyani lodge, and we enjoyed it throroughly, from the entertaining Oscar greeting us and giving an insightul chat to us about the natives way of thinking when it comes to the nature around them, to being able to interact with Eagles, Vultures, and if you're lucky Cheetahs, it was a fantastic,...

Moholoholo was such a great place. Fun and engaging guides who are so passionate about what they do and have special way of expressing the intricacies of African animals' environment as it exists today. Plenty of photo opportunities and hands on adventures for the memory bank. Well done Moholoholo for the work you do. Please everybody visit to support this... More

A great experience to see, support and understand the work they do. Some of the animals are from or as a result of the disgusting poachers, some from local farms and areas they are not wanted in, some are injured. Some of the animals after rehab are returned to the wild but some are kept or re homed in a... More
