Twala Trust Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit organization 25km from Harare along Arcturus. It is a haven for a large variety of rescued animals and birds, run by trustees Sarah Carter and veterinarian Dr. Vinay Ramlaul. Twala focuses on the rescue and rehabilitation of wild animals and birds, as well as conservation education and animal welfare issues affecting the surrounding community. Twala is home to everything from lions to ostriches, serval cats, primates, reptiles, raptors, and many other small mammals. All the animals and birds have been rescued. There is no breeding or buying or selling of animals.  Orphaned, abandoned, abused or injured animals are treated and cared for and, where possible, are released back into the wild. In cases where creatures cannot be discharged due to humanization or disability, they are free to spend their lives at Twala. Habitats for the animals are spacious and emphasize providing the very best quality of life possible for the animals. This makes for a happy, tranquil atmosphere where you will meet animals that are clearly loved and nurtured. Twala is open to visitors by prior booking only. There are peaceful picnic spots in the lush gardens, where duikers, tortoises, baby monkeys, Harriet the serval, and other rescued animals roam free. The gardens overlook a picturesque dam and indigenous woodland. There is bream fishing available and a children's swimming pool. Guided tours of the sanctuary are available at 10:30 am and 2:30 pm. Lion feeding is at 4 pm every day. There is a bustling farmyard where children can feed the birds, sheep, and other rescued creatures. Twala is open from Wednesday to Sunday and on all public holidays except Christmas Day.
