Monkeyland is an 18Ha free-roaming primate sanctuary. Home to 11 species of primates, it is the only free roaming multi species primate sanctuary in the world.

Birds of Eden, right next door, boasts the largest single dome aviary in the world and hosts over 200 different bird species in a spectacular free-flight environment.

Located just outside Plettenberg Bay on South Africa's Garden Route, these sanctuaries are a treat to visit and a perfect example of animal centric responsible tourism.

John McCarthy breath holding course for Adopt a Swimmer

John McCarthy breath holding course for Adopt a Swimmer

This video provides a small insight into the joy and confidence built in some of the 20 children from Adopt a Swimmer who did a Breath Holding course with John McCarthy last week.

The project was one Sasfin's community initiatives build around the Sasfin Plett Wine and Bubbly Festival and they hope that its impact is long lasting. Close to 80% of the Plettenberg Bay community cannot swim and by teaching children confidence in the water, not only do they hope that lives will be saved, but also, as this video clip shows, children will grow in confidence and strength.

Thanks go to John from Ocean Child and to Louise Auersperg from Adopt a Swimmer.

Video: Surfboards auctioned for ‘Adopt a Swimmer’

Two of Greener Surfer John McCarthy's surfboards were auctioned off on Sunday 9th October at the Sasfin Plett Wine & Bubbly Festival in aid of 'Adopt a Swimmer'. Jack Mantis took to the floor as the auctioneer, after which John McCarthy handed over the cheque to Louise Auersperg of 'Adopt a Swimmer'.

The two surfboards together fetched an impressive R27,500.00 which Sasfin then matched, resulting in a total of R55,000.00 being donated to the programme.

Adopt a Swimmer in Plettenberg Bay aims to empower underprivileged children by teaching them pool proficiency, and earlier in the week John McCarthy taught the children more about swimming, surfing and the sea. 

A huge thanks ...more

Video: Gibbon Tightrope Walks Bridge

Monkeying around in Plett, Siam, an 8 year-old Gibbon braves a tightrope walk across the 128m suspension bridge at Monkeyland and Birds of Eden. Siam was rescued from captivity and released into the sanctuary just eight months ago.

 

A WOBBLY gibbon tightrope walks across a suspension bridge 60 feet up in this hilarious video. The comical footage shows eight-year-old ape Siam balancing precariously on the rope crossing.
