Cat Park Tour & Wine Tasting

Stellenbosch

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!

Set alongside Hudson’s Restaurant, our Tasting Room is the perfect place to enjoy your first introduction to Vredenheim’s range of wines. Offering seating at the counter or at large tables, we are able to accommodate groups of any size, from romantic tastings for two to tour group visits.

Our private cellar, adjacent to our Tasting Room, provides the perfect setting for intimate tutored tastings and is very popular with small groups and wine clubs.

Our Tasting Room also shares the stage with our Gift Shop, giving guests the perfect excuse to browse around whilst enjoying a wine tasting. From calendars and curios to jewellery, toys and art, and everything in between, there’s really something for everyone!

Customer Reviews

Great place! Amazing venue and scenery and the big cats were unbelievable! well looked after and healthy. - Kerry Oldfield


The Wine Tasting was very good. It is a very nice wine yard. The cat Park Tour was very interessting. But the cages a quite small and do not fit to the natural living of these animals. My impressoin is, that the circumstances for the animals a not good. I would prefer, if Vredenheim would release the animlas to a real zoo who can much better take care of the animlas. - Markus Krieger


Hi there, I know I am replying much later. My family and I loved the park. Loved the animals. The service was top class. The wine was great. Thanks for the experience. Will visit again and bring more people along . - Fernando Solomons


The lady guide that showed us the cats was very knowledgable and took time to answer all questions and although I don't fully agree with animals being in captivity it was explained very well about these cats and they all looked in excellent condition and very well looked after. The setting was really very nice and everywhere was very well kept. The wine tasting after was also very good, very low key but the wine was very nice and we did buy 6 bottles. Should we return another year we will call again any buy more wine. - Frances McDougall


We enjoyed this visit very much so much nicer than just tasting wine we have just moved to Stellenbosch and are getting to know the area, your rose wine is one of the best I have had, and believe me we have tasted a lot we used to live in Bonnievale and did the wacky wine twice and overall enjoy a good glass of wine, we will be getting visitors in April and will be taking them to you. - Wayne lewis
