One of Africa’s largest and most successful wildlife rehabilitation and release centres, this sanctuary is a haven for wild animals which have little hope for survival in the wild.
This sanctuary is often the last refuge for those animals or birds brought in sick, injured or conﬁscated. Residents here are those which have been orphaned, abandoned, injured or born in captivity.
Wherever possible, rescued animals and birds are rehabilitated and returned to the wild. If safe release into their natural habitat is not possible though, animals are well cared for in the sanctuary. In the case of endangered species, captive breeding programs may be undertaken to assist nature.
A wide range of wildlife are permanently or temporarily resident here; from lion, leopard and hyena to crocodile, snake and chameleon, various species of bok, gazelle and antelope and plenty of birds too !
