Panthera Africa big cat sanctuary for any captive bred lions, leopards and tigers in need of rescue. Animal welfare is our top priority. The big cats will be protected and prosper for the rest of their lives at Panthera Africa!

One of Panthera Africa’s main purposes is to be an educational platform where we create awareness about conditions big cats face in captivity, and how animal welfare and enrichment play a vital role in giving them the best captive life possible. We are a true sanctuary where no cub petting, breeding or trading takes place.

Panthera Africa is open for you to come and enjoy our magnificent Big Cats! We are excited to tell you that we have lions, tigers, leopards and caracals that are waiting for you and your family and friends!

We are offering our Educational visits for people to come and hear all the unique stories of the individual animals, in addition to the important knowledge about the species themselves and what is happening in captivity and in the wild. You now have the chance of capturing the animals in their beautiful new homes, and experience animals that are treated with the greatest of respect and love.

Pre-booking for Panthera Africa Big Cat Sanctuary is essential, and in order to not overcrowd the animals, we have put a limit of 20 people per visit.

Educational visits – @ 10am and 3pm. Price: R 190 per adult, R 120 per child (under 13), Please contact
