Cat Park (feeding only on weekends)


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

Fantasties. Personeel is vriendelik en baie hulpvaardig. Die man wat ons by die cat park deurgeloop het is amazing. Hy het dit redig wonderlik gemaak en doen soveel moeite. Tot die man wat ons op die trekker rit gevat het, so vriendelik??? - Jeanne de Villiers

It was incredible. The staff were very helpful. In the big cat section, the man went around with us and told us about each animal as well as fed some of them. In the farm, they let my children give milk bottles to some of the animals. We all loved it and would definitely go again. We spent a whole day there - Aviva Sedar

very pleasant outing. staff was wonderfull. we truly enjoyed the day, a must for everyone that has not been yet. - Paul Mouton

Our family party of grandchildren, parents and grandparents were enthralled by the big cats but sad that they are in captivity. The service however was courteous and efficient - Barry Hildebrand
