About WWR

Waterberg Wildlife Rescue is an animal rescue centre situated in Limpopo, South Africa, that provides an optimum home for previously abused and displaced animals that cannot be returned to the wild. Here, they can spend the rest of their lives free from discomfort and distress. 

We are activists that promote the humane treatment of animals and we provide the knowledge and space to enhance the human-animal bond.

As an interactive centre, we encourage people to see first-hand how animals enrich our lives. Learning and volunteer experiences at Waterberg Wildlife Rescue (WWR) promote respect, compassion and empathy for animals, and a sense of increased responsibility for animals.

Join us in making a remarkable difference in the lives of animals and humans alike.

 

Our Mission

At Waterberg Wildlife Rescue, we are driven by a single goal: to do our part in making the world a better place for all. The work we do is aimed at providing a holistic approach to solving one of humankind’s biggest challenges: changing cruelty into care.

We promote initiatives to serve the animals who need it most, and we believe in taking action not just to raise public awareness, but to create change.

Our focus goes beyond simply educating; it is our mission to empower people to have a positive relationship with animals.

 

Savannah Heuser - Founder of WWR

“Find me where the wild things are.”

My journey to WWR began at the age of 14 when I fell in love with lions on a trip through Zambia. I wasn't sure then where my work with big cats would take me, and it’s taken me down many hard roads since, but I’ve never once looked back.

The gates of my family farm were opened as a sanctuary for abused and displaced big cats in 2012, after nearly two years of non-stop persistence to fund, build and sanction the sanctuary. There have been over 45 big cats in my care since; some have had temporary residence while others have made this their permanent home.

What started out as an almost impossible dream became reality. Ten years on after being solely dedicated to big cats, I decided to open my home to all wildlife in need of sanctuary. My walk with lions is far from finished, and my walk with more species has just begun.
