Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve is situated in the Drakensberg escarpment region of eastern Mpumalanga, South Africa. The reserve protects the Blyde River Canyon, including sections of the Ohrigstad and Blyde Rivers and the geological formations around Bourke's Luck Potholes, where the Treur River tumbles into the Blyde below.
Southwards of the canyon, the reserve follows the escarpment, to include the Devil's and God's Window, the latter a popular viewpoint to the Lowveld at the reserve's southern extremity.
Kruger National Park, in northeastern South Africa, is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. Its high density of wild animals includes the Big Five: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffaloes. Hundreds of other mammals make their home here, as do diverse bird species such as vultures, eagles, and storks. Mountains, bush plains, and tropical forests are all part of the landscape.
Situated in the shadow of the majestic “Mariepskop”, this unique rehabilitation center is home to many animals and birds. Some of them are the rescued lions from an Egyptian circus, Queen the crowned eagle, Chui the leopard, Jolly and Juba the cheetah ambassadors, and many more.
The center has a long-standing and successful Serval Breeding Project which is a success story all of its own, having bred and released over 160 species back into areas where they have previously become extinct.

You may volunteer at Betty's Haven and lend a hand for some of the life-filling duties that are required to help amazingly appreciative kids with their schooling, assisting at the local kindergarten as these little one's soak up all your knowledge that you share with them. Or, if you prefer the Jamie Oliver feel, lending a hand in the kitchen is always gladly welcomed.
If the kitchen is not your domain, the house is always calling for the odd job here and there, and not forgetting the garden that is always in need of a little tender loving care. All children at Betty's Haven have become orphans due to a variety of happenings in their unfortunate little lives. Some lost their parents to AIDS and they themselves battle with the disease on a daily basis.
