Moholoholo Animal Rehab Centre
At Moholoholo they are often faced with the difficult decision of what to do with an injured or poisoned animal, which will not be able to be released back into the wild. As a result, they have a number of “permanent residents” at the centre and at their own cost use them as “ambassadors” for their respective species. Members of the public are therefore able to get an up close and personal experience of these incredible creatures and with their hands on approach they have the ability to demonstrate to the public the threats and problems local wildlife is facing today.
An absolute must to visit and experience.
Daily Tours: Mon – Sat (09h30 and 15:00).
Open on Public Holidays and Sundays during School Holidays @ 15h00.
