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.

Informative lectures and guided tour - especially enjoyed the feeding of the Vultures and getting close to the other birds of prey . Also had the opportunity to spend time with a baby Rhino and get close to Cheetah and Lion. The Centre definitely a must to visit.

The Moholoholo Wildlife Rehab Centre does very good work. The animals that they have at the public face of the centre are wildlife ambassadors to help educate visitors on the plight of wildlife and the challenges faced by poaching, snaring, urban encroachment and habitat destruction. Well worth a visit - the guides are knowledgeable and helpful. They provide a valuable... More

Great to see all the animals of Africa. Even got to pat a cheetah and feed meat from my hand to a Vulture. Fantastic rehab centre and great history. Wow.

Cannot speak highly enough of the staff, their animal & avian colleagues and their collective educational message. This is a must for all, young or old, tree-huggers or not ;-)... we could all stand to hear the Moholoholo message, regardless of what we think we may already know! To paraphrase another report, the interaction was just the icing on the... More

We visited the wildlife rehab centre and really enjoyed our time there. Our guide, Jean was fabulous, very smart and entertaining. We weren't particularly interested in all the birds but it was fun to see a giraffe and rhino roaming free. Lots of cats too!

I'm really glad we went to Moholoholo and would recommend it to anyone visiting Hoedspruit. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. I was most surprised to meet the honey badgers and am now absolutely terrified of those little creatures!
