How it works...
Sponsor an animal
a few guests have suggested this idea, where people get to sponsor an animal and contribute to its well-being and life here at Fynbos Farm. So we took the bold step and have structured the following:
For an amount you feel is suitable, you get:
Join today or email us to become part of our family.
Sponsor an animal and support all the animals in Fynbos Farm’s care.
Your animal sponsorship helps care for the more than 150 animals (including mammals, birds, invertebrates, amphibians and reptiles) in Fynbos farm’s care.
Sponsoring an animal is a fun and rewarding way to support Fynbos Farm’s role in providing abandoned, abused or unwanted animals with a safe home and wonderful care.
Your animal will still live at the farm, but you’ll go home knowing you’re supporting the farm and its purpose – to inspire and act for our furry and feathered friends who do not have a voice.
Your Sponsor fees help us take good care of the animals, expand and maintain their enclosures and camps, and give them treats and spoils.
Remember, sponsorships are symbolic. All sponsored animals still remain in their Fynbos Farm homes.
Individuals, Schools, Clubs and Corporations are all welcome to Sponsor an Animal "family".

We have extended the aviaries giving the birds more flight area. We have also taken on more feathered and furry friends, from African Grey parrots, to Squirrels, to Guinea pigs and to Guinea Fowl.
We have had a bumper year with babies - llamas, alpacas, sheep and our goats have all been busy. The geese, ducks and turkeys have also increased in numbers.
We have had adoptions from all over the country and some overseas people, for which we are very grateful to.
