Wildlife sanctuaries/orphanges near Kruger

Unread post by Izumi » Tue Nov 29, 2016 5:01 am

We will be in Kruger for 10 days in March next year on a self-drive holiday to the park.
Question - are there any sanctuaries/orphanages nearby where we can visit and get some hands-on time with the animals? For example stay in KNP and make a day-trip?
We sure would appreciate any information/help - we live in Japan and this is my wife's first visit to Africa and she would dearly love to do this! :D

A very warm welcome Izumi :gflower: . I hope that you have a wonderful stay in Kruger.

The forum focuses on Sanparks, so I am sending you a pm of one of the better know rebab centers close to Kruger.

Hello Izumi


On my last trip to Kruger we stayed at open gate. The endangered wildlife sanctuary about 30 minutes drive is there in hoedspruiit. It is different to the Kruger, but also fantastic.


Serval , civit cats, wild dog, cheetah breeding, king cheetah, sable antelope, rhino orphans or survivors in about a 2 hour tour. No petting the animals but you are up and close.
