LIVE FOOTAGE

The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre is proud to partner with Africam to bring you live footage from inside our rhino boma. This amazing initiative allows followers to tune in and see ongoing live video feeds capturing all the interactions between Esmé, Thaba, Mango, Bula, Peter, Mielie and Liquorice as they go about their business.

The best times to tune in is from the late afternoon through to early morning each day. Please note this time frame is taken in SAST (South African Standard Time).

ANIMAL INTERACTION POLICY

HESC maintains a strict policy of no contact or interaction with animals kept on the property. Our policy is aligned with international trends based on animal ethics and welfare and is aimed at ensuring the safety and health of both animals and visitors. Our policy further endorses the right of animals to live a life without fear, which is often the consequence of close contact with humans with whom they are not acquainted. We avoid human-imprinting, whereby the animals will identify more with humans than with their own species and cause them to become problem animals once released.
