Panthera Africa Educational Visit Voucher

Stanford, Western Cape

OPEN!!! Please Pre-Book via tel 0711828368 or email

Activity Description

One of Panthera Africa’s main purposes is to be an educational platform where we create awareness about the conditions big cats face in captivity, and how animal welfare and enrichment plays 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.

On our educational visits you have the chance of capturing photographs of the big cats in their beautiful Natural homes, and get to know about their unique stories, in addition to the important facts about the species and their different situations. We strongly believe in the importance of educating you about animal welfare and conservation, so together with a staff member you will be taken for a lovely walk whilst admiring the beautiful cats.

We ask you kindly to arrive 15 minutes prior to your visit.

We look forward to sharing our dream with you, and to introducing you to our four legged friends!

Customer Reviews

Great experience and gained so much insight into the big cat trade industry and some of the horrible things that happen to Lions around the country. - Lufefe Ntondini

Very interesting visit which gives a different perspective on the wildlife trade and breeding farms. Panthera Africa is a real sanctuary that respects big cats and offers them a second chance. Thank you Megan for the visit! - Ariane Masson

Thank you for sharing the plight of these precious animals with us. The more the public can be informed the better we can fight those who choose to make money out of the suffering of these magnificent beasts. - Lynda Trotter

I loved it was so nice to see Rays up close. He is by far my favorite of them all. You have a amazing place and all the animals looks so happy - Jacob

Our visit to Panthera Africa sanctuary about 2 weeks ago was a very worthwhile and enjoyable experience. Our guide, Stephanie was very informative, friendly and helpful. Since my visit a few years ago, I noticed the many improvements and additional enclosures to even further enhance the living conditions of the animals. All the cats seemed so happy and relaxed and in excellent condition. I so enjoyed the stories told and the educational facts explained by Stephanie. A relaxing stroll in a beautiful scenic part of Stanford. A very enjoyable and rewarding morning well spent. I would encourage and highly recommend a visit to this true sanctuary.
