We know our animals are loveable. Everyone has their own special favorite. They are our family.  Make them part of your family too!  Mbidi is home to over 100 different animals, comprised of well over 30 species covering land, sea and air, including lions, tigers, bears, crocodiles, snakes, a couple of naughty cockatoos, shy and friendly meerkats, and everyone’s favourite mascot…Phumba!

Now you can adopt them and know that your generous donations are contributing to the best care we can provide. Adoption fees go directly to the animals and will be used for care such as food, bedding, medication, veterinary services, enclosure upgrades, construction and maintenance, security, and enrichment items such as toys, special treats, and even (if you’ve been here, you’ll know!) …milk!

We do the best we can to take care of our animals, while keeping our costs some of the lowest in the world. As the saying goes, sometimes it takes a village!
