The team, based in Pretoria, operate in Olievenhoutsbosch, just outside of Johannesburgburg, as well as in Mamelodi, Pretoria. Being in relatively close proximity to Mongena Game Lodge, one of our incredible partners, they are able to take the children on wildlife excursions into the magnificent Big 5 Park Dinokeng. The team conduct annual outreaches into the greater Kruger area and Eswatini and have also partnered with the Psyche Society of the University of Pretoria enabling them to give lessons to mentally disabled individuals at sites all through the city.
