“Interesting visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

This place breathes the love the owners put in to the place. Lots of different animals, and they all have a story. From snakes to eagles, to owls, to crocodiles, to meerkats.
Some of the animals you can hold and touch, like a gekko, meerkat, snakes.
Go and see for yourself how sweet these animals are, but keep in mind, there not meant to be pets!
Note, the place is not well signed from the road, but it is situated next to Lenmore Farmstall, near Addo (which has great food)

the place is small, and the owner is passionate about her work. She knows a lot about her animals and really cares for them. you cannot leave without leaving a good tip!

“Unbelievable, magical and memorable.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2012

What a great experience. Personalized tour, everyone was so amazing, and what a great way to visit these animals. They even got me to hold a snake (even though I squealed the entire time). And the visits with the owls were magical. What a wonderful sanctuary - a must visit if you're anywhere near Addo.

“Great Visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2012

A must see while in the area!! A nice well kept small sanctuary for all kinds of critters. Great personal tour, we got to see lots up close, we even got to hold a few! They do a wonderful job with rehab and releasing when they can. They were very informative, this sanctuary definately needs to be supported so they can continue all of the awesome work they do!! Take your time to see lots, learn something new, hold a few and just have some fun at the Raptor & Reptile Centre!! Brent and Jena St. Louis, Missouri USA

“Marvelous Sanctuary! Visit and Support Their Cause!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2012

Anyone who decides to dedicate themselves to the well-being of mistreated animals deserves an award. This sanctuary is great and there are plenty of interesting and friendly animals ranging from snakes, birds, Rooikats, monkeys,...and beyond. The owners are well informed and passionate about their critters. We even got to see their latest additions, a new family of african porcupines! the baby is only 2 weeks old and adorable! I highly recommend the sactuary as its not expensive but don't hesitate to give them a little more. Its for a good cause.
On the plus side, the little restaurant/ deli next to their place is great !
