If you've come here from a safari, it will seem odd viewing some of the same animals in cages, and sad when you learn that the great majority cannot be released into the wild. However, I believe this centre does good work in re-introducing the animals where that's possible, conservation, breeding and education. It was interesting seeing animals that one... More

An interesting place to visit but to my eyes more a zoo than a rehab centre. The introduction by Oscar is most entertaining and the guides knowledge excellent and very educational.

The introductory talk by Oscar was brilliant - funny, sad, and moving but made you realise that the answers to animal cruelty and hopes of living in harmony with wildlife is a lot more complicated than you first imagine. Very thought provoking. The animals of course were fantastic to see close up (except the honey badgers which were quite scary!).... More

Just the introductory talk was worth the entrance fee alone but the tour included an informative walk around the centre and some close encounters with some of the residents. They do a fantastic job recovering african wildlife and also educating people in the local area as to why conservation is so important.

Moholoholo offers a unique chance to see the wildlife up close. It is awesome! If you are in the area, it is well worth a visit. Don't miss it if you are on your way to Kruger, it's a great way to round out your safari experience. They are the caregivers of many animal victims. They are a ray of... More

It is a very nice place to visit. However, all animals - hyena, leopard, lion, - and birds - vultures and eagles are in cages. Only in some on the cages with vultures and eagles you can enter. From a photografic point of view it is not ideal as most of the animals are in cages.

This is a sad place but the work done here is for the Animals and is Amazing. It educates others and saves Animals that are otherwise doomed either to injury or death. It works with people to protect and reintroduce animals that are able to be rehabilitated back to the wild to do so. I learnt a lot from my... More

We visited this Rehabilitation Center as part of group tour to Kruger National Park. It was a wonderful surprise due to the personal nature of the walking guided tour. The pens for the animals were normal for a small facility, but I have never seen a guide with more enthusiasm and willingness to take the time to share his knowledge... More

We enjoyed our visit to the "rehab" centre but truly enjoyed Oscar's realistic views on wildlife & man sharing the environment. This was our only "sighting" of wild dogs which was great.

The half hour overview of the facility and it's work was well presented and entertaining. I have no doubt that Moholoholo does excellent and essential work. However I would have liked to hear more specifics eg. numbers and types of animals successfully rehabbed, successes and challenges, length of time before release, where do the vets come from? It was a... More
