  • The Leopard conservation unit are currently cleaning up our area with regards to illegal snares and the more people assist the easier their task is at hand. 
  • For those who would be interested in this activity and be involved with such a great conservation project please contact us. 
  • The metals and debris that are found in nature are not supposed to be there and not only pose a threat to the wild life, but to the grass and surroundings as well. 
  • They force grass to grow in wrong directions, kills whatever is around it and litters the place that should be 100% natural.
  • Departure from Barberton Adventures after relevant documentation has been signed.
  • We have too many sites to mention.
  • Most of the sites are in the mountains where our leopards are based.
