Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre
The Moholoholo (meaning The Very Great One) Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is a home for many of South Africas abandoned, injured and poisoned wildlife and a highly regarded contributor to wildlife education in the country.
This unique centre is situated in the shadow of the awe inspiring Mariepskop and is home to many animals and birds. Some of these animals includethe rescued Lions from an Egyptian Circus, Queen the Crowned Eagle, Chui the Leopard, Jolly and Juba the Cheetah ambassadors and many more. The Centre has also got a long standing and successful Serval Breeding Project which is a success story all of its own. Having bred and released over 160 Serval cats back into areas where they have previously become extinct. The centre has also received reports that some of the females have since mated with wild males in the area of release, thus naturally increasing the numbers in those areas! Another first for Moholoholo is the fact that they are the only facility in South Africa to have successfully bred the endangered Crown Eagle.
The Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre aims to return rehabilitated birds and animals to the wild wherever possible, and those who are not so fortunate due to the nature and extent of their problems are used for educational talks to the many people who visit the centre each year both from across South Africa and abroad. Interaction between the centres animals and visitors to Moholoholo is permitted under controlled conditions. Needless to say, the management and staff of Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre are a group of dedicated conservationists committed to the preservation of South Africas wildlife. Their intimate knowledge of the animals they so lovingly care for and protect is nothing less than impressive.
Some of the animals which can be viewed at the centre include, Lions, Leopards, Servals, Lynx, Honey Badgers, Eagles, Vultures, Wild Dogs and any baby animals that they may have at the time of your visit. A visit to the Centre will stimulate awareness and an understanding of the plight faced by our wildlife today, and the staff at Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre invite you to pop in and share the unique experience with the animals of Africa.
One visitor commented that they gone expecting to see animals in cages looking bored, like a zoo. But instead they found a group of practical, highly experienced educators with a strong message. The visitor left after stroking a cheetah, feeding a vulture and getting very close to a baby hippo and having seen a lot more animals than they had expected. He said that they had learned a lot about the rawness and wonder of nature
