Riverside Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre specialises in the scientific rehabilitation and reintroduction of South Africa's 5 Primate and other wildlife species back into their natural native habitats:
This Bush Baby was brought to Riverside as a small baby, and after 5 months under Riverside's care, learning to hunt bugs with the help of some very patient volunteers, was able to be set free.

These baboons reside within a semi-wild enclosure consisting of natural vegetation providing food, sanctuary, and a spectacular viewpoint!
