The mountains to the South and West provide shelter from the prevailing winds, thereby affording good flying weather on most days.

Panorama Route

Moholoholo is a home to many of South Africa’s abandoned, injured and poisoned wildlife. At Moholoholo we are often faced with the difficult decision of what to do with an injured or poisoned animal which will not be able to be released back into the wild. As a result, we have a number of “permanent residents” at the centre and at our own cost we use them as “ambassadors” for their respective species.  

Blyde Canyon Safaris, together with the Moletele community, offer scenic boat cruises on the Blyderivierspoort Dam in the Blyde River Canyon. It is a place of pure untouched beauty and is best seen and experienced from the water on a comfortable, 20-seater pontoon boat.

Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre

Dozens of magnificent waterfalls including Lisbon and Bridal falls, Gods Window and Bourke’s Luck Potholes. A picnic lunch or a stop at Harry’s Pancakes in Graskop can be arranged.
