3 Amazing Wildlife Sanctuaries On The Garden Route Of South Africa

The parks’ indigenous forest is home of 550 primates, 200 species of birds and some of Africa’s largest cats. Monkeyland, Birds of Eden and Jukani are animal sanctuaries like no other.

Unlike other parks, they are a place of refuge, with fare trade accreditation and environmentally sound standards. Their focus is on conservation, eco-tourism and education. The 3 parks are South’s Africa’s pioneers in reintroducing mistreated animals back into their original environment. Their common mission is to rehabilitate their “guests” back into their wild state. They are implementing a ground breaking approach in their forest and spreading the knowledge to other wildlife parks overseas. In the parks, animals feel free, healthy and happy. The parks do not allow touching, petting, playing, feeding, handling or traumatizing the animals in any way.
 
On guided tours in Monkey land you will see free roaming multi-species primates, including gibbons, howler monkeys, vervet monkeys, langurs, sakis, capuchins, squirrel monkeys, spider monkeys, ring-tailed lemurs and the critically endangered black and white ruffed lemurs.
 
Birds of Eden host world’s largest single dome free-flight bird aviary in the world with over 200 different species of birds. The park is nested in 2.3 hectares of forest with waterways, suspensions bridges and natural walkaways.
Jakani is home of large cats such as lion, Bengal and Siberian tiger, jaguar, and more together with other wildlife such as the African wild dog, hyena, jackal, honey badger, zebra, raccoons.
Those 3 amazing sanctuaries are a true example of what a wildlife sanctuary should be and encourage other parks to follow the lead. There is no need to traumatize animals for the sake of tourism. It’s fun, exciting and very education to have wildlife encounters in a sanctuary where animal run free and feel happy.

Sanparks Hosts Vietnamese Celebrities In Awareness Campaign

SANParks has welcomed a Vietnamese group as part of an initiative to debunk myths about the perceived medicinal value of rhino horn.

 
The initiative is facilitated by SANParks Honorary Rangers in partnership with the Rhinose Foundation and will see the group of celebrities, media and top business people visiting the park for three days. 
 
“We want these celebrities to have a first-hand experience of the cruelty that these African giants are subjected to, and to use their influence to discourage the demand in their home country,” says Reynold Thakhuli, SANParks Acting Head of Communications. He adds that it is hoped that the celebrities will use their influence to help bring awareness and to educate their fellow citizens.
 
Vietnam is one of the main countries at the centre of the illicit trade in rhino horn, where it has been used for many centuries in the ancient practice of traditional Chinese medicine as a cure for various ‘fevers’. Very recently, to a far greater and more damaging extent, it has been perceived as cure for cancer, as well as a sought-after status symbol and health tonic among the more wealthy sectors of the Vietnamese population.
