Cat Rehabilitation Centre

Join us for an up close and personal tour and learn more about South Africa's endangered wild cat species. Come and be mesmerised by the beauty of the Caracal (Lynx), enchanted by the playful Serval, astonished by the speed and agility of the Cheetah and delighted by the African Wildcat. View and photograph these amazing animals at the Emdoneni Cat Rehabilitation Centre. We offer educational tours daily, with feedings during the afternoon tour and an informative talk about the animals and the project by an experienced guide.

The aim of the Emdoneni Cat Rehabilitation Centre is to care for wild Cheetahs, Serval Cats, African Wildcats and Caracal (Lynx), which have been orphaned or injured in the wild and are in need of care and rehabilitation. We also intend to breed where possible and release the offspring back into their natural habitat.

Your staff are true gems. When we went to pay for the cat tour Dumisane welcomed us as if we were his long lost family. Reception was a breath of fresh air! When Bonamanzi could not take us on a game drive which we had booked prior to arriving, we phoned Emdoneni and Dumisane organized us a game drive within ten minutes of asking and Pieter was so obliging and a very informative guide indeed. Such service makes people want to return and we certainly will.

Emdoneni Lodge, the lodge that has it all. From arrival to departure, we were treated like royalty by the Emdoneni staff. We had been driving all day and were so relieved to find that Emdoneni Lodge was conveniently located, just off the highway. It was such a pleasure staying there and having such a high quality lodge to return to after each day spent exploring the Hluhluwe district. The nice shady trees, with birds singing in the background set the mood, providing us with serene shelter from the blistering sun. The swimming pool was the next treat, it felt like heaven diving into the clear blue water. Later that night we enjoyed a lovely barbeque, and what a feast it was, a meal fit for a king. Emdoneni Lodge is the perfect stop for the tired traveller. We will definitely recommend and return to this beautiful lodge. Thanks for the excellent service guys!
