Educational and exciting guided tours in an open vehicle through the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, renowned for its rehabilitation work.


Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre presents a fascinating insight into rare, vulnerable, and endangered animal species, and animal conservation efforts at large. 

Funds raised through the tours contribute directly to the conservation projects and daily operating costs.

The two-hour guided tour gives an overview of the conservation programs and of the various species in their care. The cheetahs and rhinos is always a highlight!
