We are thrilled to unveil our refreshed brand identity.  The updates show the evolution of our sanctuary since its founding in 2018. While this is a significant change, our core beliefs have not changed.

Over the last few months, we have poured our hearts and souls into creating a new image that would accurately depict who we are and why we are so passionate in our pursuit in giving wildlife that were previously kept in cages a second life living freely in our 26ha Hidden Forest.

Tony Blignaut, CEO of The South African Animal Sanctuary (SAASA) who are the sole-custodians of all the animals and creatures residing in the Hidden Forest, said “We were blessed to be able to open our sanctuary outside Ballito in a beautiful pristine forest that had been protected for decades by Howard and Pam Essery and the Essery’s for generations before them. This sanctuary follows on the back of our very significant and successful sanctuary Monkeyland in Plettenberg Bay. This was the name we used to launch the sanctuary in 2018, however this sanctuary is so special, it deserves its own unique name, and we present to you”
