PREDATOR PARK

We believe conservation is based on the fundamental principles of respect for animals and the environment. The money generated from our predator park goes straight into the conservation efforts on Mabalingwe.

The Predator Park opened in 2014 with only three lions but expanded almost instantly and today it has become home to over ten different predator species.

Managing wildlife comes with a big responsibility and we put in a great deal of effort to understand the ecology, biology and genetics in order to cater for the general welfare of every animal.

OUR PREDATOR PARK HAS THREE MAIN OBJECTIVES:
OUR CORE VALUES DEFINE WHO WE ARE AS A COMPANY

We believe that every living creature should be treated humanely and with the needed respect by understanding their nature and circumstances and providing them with the best care possible.

INTEGRITY

We base our company on strong ethical and moral principles and use these principles as a basis for our decision making, building relationships with others and taking responsibility for our conservation actions.

INNOVATION

We challenge ourselves to come up with solutions to problems concerning our wildlife and try to broaden our horizons of what we can achieve in our attempt to conserve the animals.

COLLABORATION

We believe that working together as a team is the best way to achieve our goals. Whether working together with fellow colleagues or collaborating with other organisations, teamwork is important in making things happen.

The Predator Park invites members of the public to join a predator feed in order to witness these amazing animals up close, learn more about them and our conservation efforts, and be inspired in joining the fight to protect our wildlife.

OUR ANIMALS’ STORIES

Most of our animals in the predator park have a story to tell of who they are, where they came from and what they went through. Animals have their own way of communicating, unlike humans who mostly communicate their emotions and experiences verbally. Animals perceive the world in a different way to humans and we are only beginning to discover all the magnificent ways in the manner that they communicate. We will never fully understand what the animals went through, but we can tell their stories from what we have seen and learned from them. We want to give our animals a voice and speak up about humans who have placed them in terrible situations or kept them in poor living conditions. Just because they communicate differently, does not mean they do not feel pain, suffering and loss.
