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

We love Vredenheim! It is absolutely beautiful and a great experience for kids and adults alike. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. The restaurant is first class too. - Charna Chapman

This was a rather disappointing outing. People should be advised on feeding times and that the animals is mostly sleeping during mid day. Also I would have like to be advised on the petting zoo upgrade. Its not very organised. You do not know for what to search in the enclosures. - George Booysen

Hi It was terrible, not what I expected. We walked on our own as the tour had started already even though we were early. Lady was informative however there was nothing wow or interesting. Your farm yard has more entertainment value. Kids were thinking that they would see more. No definately not something I would do or recommend. Tractor ride was more fun too. - Michelle Coetzee

Well i booked on line but there was no official tour at that time. The lady at the entrance just told us to go in and walk around. A young male employee overheard our conversation and offered to take us around. He was very passionate about the animals and very knowledgeable. The place does need some work and tours need to be more organised. - Susan Jane Wandrag

Enjoyed is very much. Thanks - Mike Bothma
