Not only are these people doing a great job in saving wildlife that has suffered mostly due to human intervention, they are also very well trained and interested in what they are doing. You also get a close look at some rare and less rare wildlife ranging from vulture to honey badger to wild dogs. Go there , it's money... More

These people are doing an amazing job to rehabilitate animals who have been hurt or injured! The educational talk at the beginning of the tour was excellent - very informative and at the same time, humorous! What was most interesting is that it's not always easy to find places/homes for the animals to be returned back into the wild after... More

A great outing for the kids to learn about endangered wildlife. The staff were professional & knowledgeable. Definitely worth a visit when you're in the area.

We had a deep insight of the wildlife of this wonderful region, hosted by 2 monitors with great knowledge about the animals. We saw eagles, vultures, ground hornbill, lions, wild dogs, leopard, cerval, linx, baby rhino, cheetah, baby rhino, amongst other animal. Great job this people is doing. Definitely recommend the visit.

If you're in the Hoedspruit area, definitely stop at this place. It's not a zoo. The animals are all here for specific reasons, and most of them cannot be returned to the wild for various reasons. So, they are used for up-close educational expereinces. Some of the animals you might never see in the wild, or certainly not this close!... More

We spent more time here than we had originally planned. We actually gave up seeing something else that was on our agenda because we were having so much fun here. The guides were wonderful. very knowledgeable and took their time with us. It was a delightful time and I hope to visit again some day!

I live in Mpumalanga and enjoy taking my overseas visitors here to learn about rehabilitation and see some of the animals they may have missed in the Kruger Park. So enjoyed it in years gone by but my JULY 2014 trip was very disappointing. The route was changed to go to a cheetah first and then other big cats. This... More

This animal sanctuary is an amazing place to visit and learn about animals and how they are rescued. Brain Jones and his teams do incredible work in not only rescuing animals but educating everyone involved in animal rehabilitation. We have been going to visit over many years and still find it a fascinating place.

Honestly one of the best days out I've had! Loved seeing all of the animals and learning about them! Stroking the cheetah was a once in a life-time experience for me and it was incredible! Would recommend visiting this place!

Great place, very educational and you can get interactive with vultures and very close up photographs of many birds of prey. Also you see the impact of us humans on our wildlife
