More about the tours

Why is it important to learn about animals and the environment?

Not only will the world be a dull and gloomy place without animals, but we wouldn’t be able to survive as ecosystems would collapse. Eventually, the world will be rendered a planet not suitable to sustain human life. Each species play a special role in the environment and it is up to us to protect every one of them. By becoming an ambassador, you give a voice to these animals by spreading the word and showing the world that every animal counts!

On the Ambassador Tours you may get to see White Bengal Tiger, Small spotted Genet, Bat-Eared Fox, Fennec Fox, Black Jaguar, Eurasian Lynx, Clouded leopard, Ocelot, Serval, Marabou stork, Klipspringer, Pygmy Hippo, Striped Hyena and Cheetah.

The Ambassador tour is aimed to provide more info on the species in our care, why they are here and what role they play in the environment.

There is no extra charge for the tour, but a donation box is available should any guest want to donate to our enrichment projects.

Our Wildlife Wish Stand is open every day if guests would like to purchase an Ambassador badge – Clouded Leopard or Cheetah – at R35 ea.
