About Us

Big Cat Experiences is based in Limpopo, South Africa

Learn about the majestic African lion without fences or game vehicles getting in the way. All our guides know the lions well and know that the key to a safe lion walk is respecting the animals & understanding that they are letting us share in their company.

Conservation

The core of everything we do at Big Cat Experiences comes from a love of, and deep respect for, all animals and our natural world. Big Cat Experiences, its owners, and employees do not condone or support in any way, the act of caged lion hunting. In fact, all three of our adult lionesses are spayed and cannot breed. Furthermore, our lions are not bred for resale and in the case where one of our cubs or lions are relocated for any reason, we have stringent due-diligence procedures in place to ensure that they are going somewhere suitable where they will be treated in a humane and just way.

 

But our procedures don’t stop there, we also ensure that follow-ups are conducted to ratify our commitment to the welfare and wellbeing of our lions. In addition to this, we have a zero-tolerance policy for the inhumane treatment of any animal, whether within the conservancy or beyond.

What We Stand For

We are here to share our love of animals and passion for conservation. All our activities and attractions are aimed at educating people through interaction with our wildlife and its habitat. Our goal is for every visitor to:

 

  • Learn at least one new thing about our unique biodiversity
  • To take at least one breathtaking moment away with them
  • Share their newfound knowledge with at least one other person

 

If we are to ensure that our future generations can have the same fortunate experiences and interactions, then the future of conservation and the preservation of our natural habitat lies in our hands.

Walk with lions

An up-close-and-personal experience unlike any other

The Experience

For once the words “a walk on the wild side” are worthy of putting on your bucket list. Join us for the surreal experience of walking with fully-grown African lions. And walk away with a deeper understanding of these incredible animals not through words, but through the moments you share with them. You’ll meet your guides at reception and take a short walk into the bush where you’ll have a safety briefing. When you’re ready, you’ll be joined by the rest of the team – and two lions! The walk takes you on a loop through the conservancy for about 45 minutes to an hour with photo opportunities along the way. Nerves are to be expected, but by the end of the walk you’ll feel like part of the pride and be left with a memory you’ll never forget.
