Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A special place with a great mission which is to save and rehabilitate wild animals snared in traps or bred for hunting. While it does have a bit of a zoo-like feel for the animals that they are unable to release back into the wild you can see that they are committed to the rescue, rehab, and release of most of the animals they intake.
    They also make sure you have a guide to tour the grounds so you get a great deal of information on each species of animal and the specifics of those you see on the tour.

    We went on the 0900 (17th February tour) with Melissa and it was excellent. Melissa had a real affinity with the animals and was very knowledgeable. We were driven round in a safari vehicle to see the various animals - Boombie the southern ground hornbill, marabou stork, the cheetahs (including king cheetahs), African wild dogs, a leopard and rhinos with a sheep! We got very close to the cheetahs and dogs which was excellent. We would highly recommend a visit here, not only is it enjoyable but you are also helping a very very worthy cause. Put this on your places to visit, you will not be disappointed.

    This was such a great experience. They are truly majestic animals. I am South African, and a conservationist. I know very well the danger of wild animals, but there is a misconception about hippos. If not threatened, they are gentle, peaceful creatures. The love and care they receive from Tonie is reciprocal. When they hear his voice they make cooing sounds, which they do not make for anyone else. They trust him, and he trusts them, it is a relationship built over 24 years. I do not condone petting zoos, or exploiting animals for financial gain, but this is not what this is. Tonie has dedicated his life to these hippos and had to make a lot of sacrifices to care for them. It is a full time job. The small fee he asks for visitors is what he uses to feed these 2 ton animals. I highly recommend booking a stay in his chalet or treehouse. Although it is not luxurious accommodation, it is clean, safe and comfortable, with an amazing view of the Blyde river and wildlife. Book a couple of days, see what it's all about.

    I was able to see just about every African animal I could ever dream about seeing just in one day. Our guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable about all the different wildlife we encountered. The guide made sure to go above and beyond to ensure we had a great experience. My favourite part of the safari was when we spotted a timbavati lion, one of only 4 known to exist in the wild. I highly recommend booking a safari with this company. It was a life changing experience.

    I travelled to Socotra with Africando. It was amazing! Everything well organized, always felt safe. You can rely on Africando and just enjoy. You don't have to worry about anything. And Pedro was just amazing with the group. I strongly recommend this company.

    I am in love with this gallery and the people in it. Johnathan Patterson's artwork is unique, beautiful and representative of every animal I saw while in this incredible country. Just a side note, I purchased three prints and prayed I could get them home in one piece. On the 45th hour of my journey, I accidentally put a water bottle in the same compartment with the prints and damaged one of them. I e-mailed Johnathan to see if I could purchase a replacement, and not only did he send me a new one, he didn't charge me for it, indicating that he would be happy to replace if for free if I could pay the shipping costs. This was very unexpected and much appreciated. He also does commission work from photos you may have taken while on safari. Thank you Johnathan!

    Took the kids here recently, they have a lot of terrific creatures in well-sized and maintained enclosures. Lots to see (probably 60-90min) including a reptile show with some very venomous snakes. Worth a stop if you love reptiles!

    If you like art or love wildlife, this is a must visit on your time in Hoedspruit.

    Everyone who comes ends up buying something whether that be small wildlife cards to large original artworks.

    Artworks from amazing artists from all over.

    I have filled my house up with amazing pieces at a great price.
