The first event of our tour was touching a fully grown cheetah that was treated like a pet dog. It sat on a table for everyone to pat its back... I wasn't sure that was a good way to learn about wild life. Volunteers were chosen from the group to feed vultures in an enclosure whilst our guide constantly mentioned... More

The centre does its best to educate visitors on the challenges that wildlife face today and what they do to help injured and orphaned animals. I understand that some animals will be unable to survive if released back into the wild due to various factors so they are kept in the centre and they look taken care of well enough.... More

Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre is a joke!! First we arrived we went to the museum, it was very clean and taught us a lot about snares and few other things. 9:30 We gather to listen to the presentation with Oscar, he was very good though. After that we walked to watch the cheetah do a running event. I couldn't believe they... More

We were really looking forward to visiting this place more than anything else in Hoedspruit. As far as what this person is doing then this place has to be commended. It is purely about helping animals and your bucks you spend here (and its not expensive at all) are going towards a very good cause. So do it for that... More

A great place to learn more about the domestic animals and the ways of how humans abuse them or trade with them, sadly!!! There is definitely the need for such a rehab centre to give animals a place to live. Oscar who held an introductory speech was quite a character - in a positive way! He explained what Moholoholo is,... More

The lodge I work at offers transfers to this excursion, so I figured I would habe a look so that I can tell our guests about how I personally experienced it. My best memory wpuld be the sound effects of the guide Oscar, he is AMAZING! Its nice to be able to interact with some of the animals too and... More

We all enjoy seeing wild animals close up, but this place puts it all in perspective. It reminds us, of how mankind has encroached on animals territory. After an instructive talk, you get to meet some of the animals, that have not been able to be returned to the wild. If on safari please balance it out with a visit.

You're probably in the area for your love of animals, this is a great trip as it's both informative and very enjoyable. Most of all though you are not only having fun and being challenged but you are assisting to give just a little back to compensate in some small way for what the human race has done to these...

Very educational for both adults and kids. They take time to show and tell you all about the animals you Can encounter during game drives... And about those you might not have the chance to see beacuse they are rare or endangered. Staff is really nice.

This was probably my 20th visit, the last being way-back in 1999, and still enjoyed the very informative tour. I was almost a late lunch for a very stealthy lioness and her 'lazy' cohort, fortunately there was a fence between us. This obviously made this visit extremely memorable. Congratulations to Brian and his team for keeping up the good work... More
