Donald was absolutely perfect in helping us get the best photographs of some of the wildlife in this rehab center. He is truly blessed with his compassion for wildlife. I wish we had more "Donald's" in the world! Thanks for all you do for the wildlife!

We had a great visit, accompanied by one of their great guides. At the end we could hold a python (Asian), which was a nice experience. Thanks!

I have been there in May, great infos on snakes, when you are lucky you will see guys handling the snakes, standing within Black Mamba, Puffotter and Boomslang and no attack!! Do the snake handling course that gives you detailed infos on south african snakes.

I'm not a reptile person, but I enjoyed this little park. It was quite educational, especially after one of the guides/caregivers showed us around. We were able to make great photos of a chameleon rolling his tongue out, after the caregiver gave the animal a treat. We also took photos with a pyton around our necks, and we gave lizard some flowers to eat. The reptiles are taken care of very well. Definitely a place to go to, when in the area.

See the snakes close by and learn to identify them. Very useful even if you afraid of them.
They also do great stuff by rescuing snakes if you call them. I did it once in Hoedspruit with a big puff adder.
