Participate in our privately guided pangolin research and monitoring experience, and support us in this groundbreaking initiative to re-establish Temminck’s ground pangolin in a region where they have been locally extinct for decades.
A precious opportunity to join a researcher from our specialist conservation team as he (or she) locates one of the pangolins that has been reintroduced to the reserve. A rare window on the world of these shy, elusive and terribly threatened mammals: observe their unique features and adaptations first hand as our researcher does a general health check and downloads critical research data from the UHF tag attached to each pangolin.
This path-finding project, in partnership with the African Pangolin Working Group, is not only the first of its kind for pangolin worldwide, but the research learnings are key to the long-term survival of these intriguing creatures who are the world’s most trafficked mammal. All funds raised from this signature experience will go into the project for the purchase of tags, equipment, veterinary costs and the care of all the reserve’s pangolins.
This exclusive experience is available at an additional cost and is subject to availability. It will take place in the afternoon or evening in winter, or at night in summer. If less than 6 guests, a private vehicle needs to be booked. Guests will unfortunately not be allowed to touch or handle the animals.
