When it comes to tourism in African, South Africa is undoubtedly the ultimate destination for millions of tourists around the world, and the most important element and mainstay of the country’s tourism has been its amazing and grand wildlife population.
Every year, millions of tourists from miles away visit South Africa to experience the country’s incredible tourism sector. Most often, these tourists include wildlife sightseeing in their tourism adventure owing to the renowned reputation South Africa has as a country that is home to millions of wildlife, even the rarest of them.
Due to this, the Southern Africa nation places the utmost importance on their animal population, and this is evidenced in the creation of the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in Limpopo.
The Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is dedicated to the wellbeing of wildlife in South Africa. The centre rescues distressed, injured, dying, sick and poisoned animals and treat them as their core mandate. Additionally, it is responsible for educating the masses on the need to preserve these animals and protect them.
While most of the treated animals are often released back into the wild, those perceived to be in extreme danger are usually kept at a section of the centre which is a small reserve and are regarded as ‘Permanent Residents’.
The centre also serves as an important tourist attraction in Limpopo. Tourists are encouraged to visit the centre and interact with some of these wonderful creatures that had been rescued from the grip of death.
For those who would like to experience something more than just wildlife sightseeing, but learn more about animal and nature conservation, the Moholoholo Wildlife rehabilitation centre is an excellent choice as tourists go through a series of lessons on the need to protect animals and nature and why it is vital to the survival of human and also a boost for the South African economy.
