About Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre

Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre is a sanctuary for abandoned, injured or poisoned animals. Amongst these are lions from an Egyptian circus, leopards, wild dogs, cheetahs, poisoned vultures, crowned eagles and other survivors.

Did you know? The Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre is the only facility in southern Africa to successfully breed the endangered crowned eagle, and they have bred and released over 150 serval cats into areas where they had become extinct.

Moholoholo lies in the lowveld near Hoedspruit, at the base of the Drakensberg escarpment. It acts as both a facilitator to the return of injured wildlife to their natural environment, and as a breeder of endangered species.

Those animals who cannot, for whatever reason, be reintroduced to the wild remain at the centre as 'ambassadors' to educate visitors and schools who visit Moholoholo, like the lioness caught in a snare and Porsche the cheetah. Other animals include a honey badger, wild dogs, a lynx and any baby animals that are in the centre at the time of your visit.

Another of the centre's functions is to remove 'problem animals' from farms and rural areas and to relocate them to an area where they are more welcome. The Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre is a non-profit organisation and relies on public support and volunteers to sustain their programmes.

Moholoholo offers two daily tours from Monday to Saturday, starting at 09h30 and 15h00 respectively. They are open on Sundays only during school holidays and over long weekends. Contact them if your group is larger than eight people.

The permanent residents of the centre mean that visitors can get up close and personal to creatures they would not usually experience in this way. It demonstrates on a very practical level the plight of wildlife and the problems these animals face to survive.
