Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre

Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre
Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre is situated in Hoedspruit, South Africa. It is a research and breeding centre for endangered species. The centre breeds endangered or rare animals as well as treats and rehabilitates orphaned or injured animals. This is a very interesting visit for the whole family where you will get to learn a lot about conservation and the animals. There are guided tours conducted hourly. Here you will get to see cheetah, lion, Sable antelope and many more species. One of the most fascinating events you will be able to witness is the vulture feeding session.

The centre also offers a student programme which is an intense 21 days of training divided into three sections. The programme involves everyday care of cheetah and other animals species, lectures and interactive involvement. The centre also offers work opportunities to students during the holidays or on a more permanent basis. It is a great stepping stone into a great career.
