2 hour drive from Cape Town.
One of Panthera Africa’s main purposes is to be an educational platform where we create awareness about conditions big cats face in captivity, and how animal welfare and enrichment play a vital role in giving them the best captive life possible. We are a true sanctuary where no cub petting, breeding or trading takes place. We are a blue print of how a non-profit sanctuary, focusing on animal welfare, can become self-sufficient, and we aim to change breeding facilities into sustainable ethical projects.
Come and visit Panthera Africa, and our knowledgeable and passionate staff will educate you on interesting facts about the different species, and enlighten you on our animals’ unique personalities and their heartfelt rescue stories. You will be able to see, hear and enjoy everything these animals have to offer.
We strongly believe in the importance of educating you about animal welfare and the captive big cat industry, and bring to your attention the truth behind the many breeding farms and cub petting facilities. We will also inform you about the wild population of big cats and the threats they face in the wild with regards to human-animal conflicts.
