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!

Pensioners can pay on arrival, no need for a booking.

Customer Reviews

Great to have a facility so close to home. But do feel it lacks maintenance and information about the cats. No tour guide available. - Helen and Nicole Krouse

It was amazing!! Our guide knew his stuff. I can recommend it. - Evette de Klerk

Loved it ! - Kim sedgwick

The staff are great and the farm is beautiful. My only criticism is that I booked online and it was not clear to me that I didn't need to book the big cats and game drive separately. When I arrived the staff informed me that I overpaid, but I can't be refunded. Luckily the amount is not too big so I didn't bother me too much, but perhaps staff could offer a complimentary service or a glass of wine to offset your inability to process a refund. Other than that, everything was great. - Willie Willemse

An excellent venue.. very friendly and helpful staff.. peaceful and picture perfect. The Bog Cat was great and the guide was very friendly - Muhammed Omar
