Panthera Africa by Panthera Africa
Join us for a two hour excursion of play and excitement! During this unique experience you will get to work with a Panthera Africa animal keeper to create small enrichment items, which will be given to the big cats! Watch the cats run, jump and play as your handmade toys bring joy and fun to their lives. You will also get to see the implementation of a bigger enrichment that was lovingly made by our volunteers and staff members. Learn about the different types of enrichment, why we make them, and why it is so beneficial for captive big cats. Listen in awe as your passionate host takes you around the big cat enclosures and tells you their interesting and inspiring stories. Every Enrichment Visit is different, so you never know what you're going to see!
We offer you the opportunity to experience parts of our enrichment program where you can see both big and smaller cats in action, and be able to capture these unforgettable active moments on camera!
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.
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!
