Must see · Nature / Park · Wildlife Area
Pay a visit to Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary, a center that cares for neglected, abused, and elderly donkeys. Take a tour of the grounds to hear about the sanctuary's important work--preparing some of the donkeys to move on to new homes, and permanently housing some of the older ones. The center was set up to care for donkeys in the area, but also to educate about the way to treat a donkey, whose reputation for hardiness and loyalty is too often taken advantage of.

  • You cant miss the donkey sanctuary right next to the road just before you enter McGregor. Enjoy a nice lunch with a cold craft beer or wine while you consider to adopt a donkey. They need our support.  more »
  • If you are an animal-lover you should definitely make a turn here with your visit to the Western Cape. They really love animals and make sure donkeys that were previously abused or not well taken care of receive the love and nurturing that they deserve. They make a difference in the lives of these animals. The tour guides are passionate about their work and you can see they care about the animals. The food they serve in the little restaurant is delicious and affordable as-well.
  • Loved the donkeys so much! They definitely love and care for them very very well.
