What a heartwarming visit. Staff were keen to help, interested and informed. The R25 entrance fee all goes to upkeep and provisions and medication and food for the birds. Wonderful!!!

We visited with our grandchildren after spending some time on the beach at Cape Recife. It was an enjoyable outing, children friendly and educational. We enjoyed the visit, thank you.

Libby and her team are doing a fantastic job at SAMREC. It is a lovely place to take children and is just as good for adults. Well worth a visit. They need our support!

It was great to see what these folk are doing and voluntarily too. It was a stinker of a day so it would have been great if there had been some shade somewhere - umbrellas or trees!
