According to the assessment by WildChoices, the Northern Cape paints a very different picture compared to all other provinces with ONLY ONE captive wildlife tourism facility – a wildlife rehabilitation centre that falls in the SUPPORT category.

This shows that stricter nature conservation regulations can work as, for example, the Northern Cape does NOT allow the captive breeding, keeping or hunting of lions in the province. Permits are only issued for wild, self-sustaining and free-range lions.

If you’re considering visiting a captive wildlife facility anywhere in South Africa, be sure to do your homework and look them up on www.wildchoices.org.
