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

Wow !!! What a fantastic experience. We touched cheetah, fed birds of prey, watched lions, leopards, wild dogs and hyena feeding and much more. Well worth the time. Thank you Moholoholo.

I really enjoyed this rehabilitation centre, the tour started off with a talk highlighting the problems with cause these situations and give a bit of a background to the centre. We were also informed to why the animals that we were going to shown can not be released back into the wild. The main tour then commenced we were shown... More

Kind of a smaller zoo, this is a center where they rescue and treat animals. Some of them are released into the wild, but most are kept in the center. It`s a nice opportunity to see up close animals that you may not have the chance to see in the wild( wild dogs, hyena). To feed the big birds and... More

I visited this centre without knowing much about what they did. The entrance price was not extreme (I think 120 rand per person). Oscar, who talked before we looked around, provided a lot of information about what the centre does, why they do it and how they do it. We were then all taken and got to meet a cheetah,... More

A little crowdie but very nice in general. We were staying at Moholoholo main lodges and we went their one after noon. It’s fantastic what they are doing to save wild life. Excellent for kids!! Very little interaction with animal so don’t plan on touching animal. Clean and it take 2,5 hr.

It was very interesting. Make sure to take this tour before getting to the Kruge Park. Here you can see many of the animals that were saved by the center, but not that many.

This was an eyeopening experience with the wealth of knowledge of the guide. Up close and personal with a cheetah. Had an opportunity to pat one. Hyenas are huge, saw one close too but still in its cage. Rhino, lion, wild African dog, honey badger just to name a few. Then into the bird cage with the Eagles and vultures.... More

After quite a serious and harrowing introduction - explaining the damage being done to wildlife through the use of traps and snares - the friendly and charismatic guides take you through a wide selection of animals housed or being treated at the centre. There is some opportunity to interact with the animals and it's difficult not to feel outraged, empathetic... More

It felt good to support a good business/ rehab centre. We were able to get very close to a lot of wild animals. The tour guide was very informative.
