You will get to know the team as well as gain insight into animal behaviour and wildlife management. Monitoring specific individuals, packs or prides is an important part of wildlife management.

Rhino Dehorning

Join our wildlife management team on a unique rhino dehorning experience. Rhino dehorning has proven to be an effective measure to deter rhino poaching. We therefore invite you to join us and participate in a heart-warming, hands-on experience.

Get up close to wild rhino whilst assisting the team in collecting DNA samples and taking measurements, all of this contributing to the protection of the species. The procedure is not harmful in any way and our veterinarian and wildlife management team is highly experienced ensuring the welfare of the rhino during the procedure.

Pangolin Conservation Experience

Manyoni with support from the Zululand Conservation Trust has taken on a ground-breaking initiative to re-establish Temminck’s ground pangolin in Manyoni Private Game Reserve. Pangolins have been locally extinct for decades and this new initiative in partnership with the African Pangolin Working Group, is the first of its kind aimed at establishing a viable population of pangolins not only in Manyoni but in the region. The pangolins are confiscated from the illegal trade and cared for at the Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary hospital, once they have made a full recovery they are brought to the park where they begin their soft- release program. The pangolins are monitored intensively, firstly to ensure they settle in their new home and secondly for research purposes as this is a unique opportunity to learn about these cryptic animals.

Show your support and join one of our guides when they go out on a pangolin monitoring session to see a pangolin first hand and learn more about the program. All the donations received goes into the project for the purchase of the monitoring tags, monitors, equipment and veterinary costs. *This experience is subject to availability. Guests will unfortunately not be allowed to touch or handle the animals.
