Cat Park (feeding at 11H00 and 15H00)


Activity Description

Visitors to our Big Cats Park can enjoy the rare and exciting experience of being able to view these beautiful creatures up close, but still from the safety of our viewing decks and behind the enclosure fences! After all, these are wild animals and we respect them as such.

Our Big Cats Park offers a unique experience not to be found anywhere else along the Stellenbosch wine route, where one can both view and learn more about these majestic creatures that may well one day cease to exist in anything but our history books. It’s a must-visit for any animal lover, and we look forward to grrrrr-eeting you soon!

Pensioners can pay on arrival, no need for a booking. Kids under 3 is for free.

Customer Reviews

The experience was wonderful, we lobed it. The sevice was more than acceptable. The tour itself was a bit short. - Taswell Damon

What a wonderful experience for young and older! A knowledgable and friendly team who took us through the history and facts of each cat. A real treat to see feeding and a unique opportunity to see the cats up close. A must do! - Sasha molodtsov

Worthwhile being there for feeding times, but difficult when crowded and have kids that also want to see. It was lovely having an enthusiastic young man talking about the cats and answering questions, definitely had people get more excited and he was easy to listen too. - Hédri Henn Jonas

The cats are perfection. We would like to name the one lioness Calen if possible please The area is beautiful - Cassidy Alberts

We had the most wonderful day out and saw the big cats. Our experience was informative and great to see such beautiful animals! Good value for money, thank you, we really recommend this to others. Great shop and facilities and we also booked a separate game drive also a delight alongside your wines and garden. - Liana Kotze
