Members Lara Mostert and Vijver Jonck are proud to be part of The Hidden Forest Wildlife Sanctuary. This is the newest sanctuary in the South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance. This 2-time winner of the Skål Sustainable Tourism Award for Major Tourist Attraction is an up-and-coming activity on the Dolphin Coast.
Hidden Forest Wildlife Sanctuary is the newest addition to the award-winning South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance (SAASA), is the largest free-roaming, multi-specie primate sanctuary in Africa and SAASA’s first sanctuary in KwaZulu-Natal. Our sanctuary is currently home to 8 different species of rescued exotic primates. A variety of indigenous wildlife occur naturally in our stunning 23-hectare forest, including Natal Duiker, Blue Duiker, Bushbuck, Vervets and Thick-Tailed Bush Babies as well as a huge variety of birdlife. Visitors are transported on safari vehicles from our reception site to our forest where they will be met by their guide. On the guided walk of our forest, which takes between an hour and an hour and a half, visitors will learn about our species’ unique behaviours and characteristics and the threats and challenges they face in the wild and in captivity. Tours are offered in English or isiZulu and depart from our reception every 15 minutes. German tours can be offer but require a 48hour notice.
