Camp Jabulani guests are treated to a visit to the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (about a 30 minute drive through the reserve in open safari vehicle).
Founded by Lente Roode, the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre has established itself as one of the leading private research and breeding facilities for endangered species in the country.
Governed by a progressive and modern management approach, it concerns itself with the breeding and maintenance of several endangered indigenous wildlife species of Southern Africa. The Centre places particular emphasis on the breeding and maintenance of cheetah in captivity. The excellent condition of these animals and the premises on which they are maintained, reflect the attention to detail which has become the hallmark of this facility.
Visitors are able to witness feeding sessions of various rare African vultures, to touch cheetahs (providing a rare photographic opportunity) and to witness the projects undertaken by the centre’s veterinary staff who operate an animal hospital where injured or abandoned animals are cared for and eventually released back into the wild.
