South Africa
skoonheid jy sal nooit vergeet nie

The Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is situated just outside Hoedspruit in the Limpopo Province, South Africa.

The Centre was established in 1991 by a Pretoria businessman, Mr. Strijdom. When deciding on the project, he asked Brian Jones to establish and run the rehabilitation centre. Brian Jones has been working with injured and orphaned animals since the age of four and so his experience and reputation made him the natural choice. Moholoholo soon proved to be a centre that could help injured, abandoned and poisoned animals and so grew rapidly and became a respected contributor to wildlife conservation.

Not all animals are able to be released back into the wild so Moholoholo therefor have a few “permanent residents” at the centre who have become ambassadors for their species. It is these ambassadors that day visitors can get up close and personal with.

Moholoholo is also very involved in collaring and relocating “problem animals” such as leopards from farms and tribal areas. Many vultures brought in due to poisoning or electrocution have also been tagged and released and this process has aided with their research.
