Cat Park Tour


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!

Customer Reviews

Excellent from the cat tour to the wine cellar. only Only negative was a screaming child of about 4 - this disturb the cats as well as make it difficult to hear the guide. Maybe this can be addressed There was a young gentlemen with the name of Jan something - he is excellent! - Yolandi Herselman

Great service. Thank you. - Letitia de Jongh

The visit to the cat park was a special experience as we could see these magnificent animals up close. The tour guide on our experience is well informed and presented the tour in such a manner that kept you interested. All in all it was a great experience visiting the Vredenheim estate and had resulted in another visit on 2017-05-14. Thank you for what you guys are doing for those beautiful cats. Greetings. Marius and Cornelia Swartz - Cornelia Swartz

Very expensive to view only a few cats. - Glenda Pitcher

We were very disappointed with this park. We booked a tour for 15h30 . We had to enter on our own with no guide to assist. After leaving we were informed that we should come at feeding time and that the leopard actually hide at the back of his enclosure. - Ina Lindenberg
