Adopt a Baboon & Help a Life Today

We rely on generosity and donations to enable us to care for the baboons undergoing rehabilitation and we hope that through keeping you updated on your special baboon you may get to know a little of its personality & character as it develops! Choose one of our very special baboons who deserve only the best care and with your help we can provide just that!  You can choose to Adopt a baboon for yourself or as a gift.


If you choose to Adopt a Baboon, we will send you electronically;

  • An Adoption Certificate,

  • A photo,

  • Profile of you baboon,

  • Updates,

  • About C.A.R.E Information Pack.

  • Followed by email or Facebook updates 3 times a year for your adoptive baboon so that you can get to know them and how they are getting on at the Centre.



  • Adoption per year: $180 ($15 per month)

  • UK bank account holders or South African bank account holders can set up a monthly direct debit to pay over the year instead of one instalment.


Choose from one of the baboons below which need your help.
