Our team also undergoes regular training in the treatment of exotic species to remain abreast of the newest diseases and treatments.

IMPORTANT - Keeping indigenous animals as pets in South Africa

In order own indigenous wildlife, you require a permit from the Northern Cape Government. It is illegal to keep wild animals that are indigenous to South Africa without a permit, regardless of reason. Any rehabilitation centres or centres that house indigenous wildlife require various permits from their respective governing bodies.

Examples of animals that require permits include meerkats, big cats, certain bird species and certain herbivore species.
