Big Cat Welfare Fund

Big Cat Experiences is facing the biggest challenge in our long history. The COVID-19 (Corona Virus) pandemic has resulted in us not being able to run our educational experiences. This has severely affected the income generated to be able to fund the feeding, security and overall well-being of our amazing big cats which we strive to protect and enrich.


That is why we are asking for any donations towards essential staff wages, animal food, security, and veterinarian care in order to continue offering our animals a safe haven.


We need to raise around ZAR 35,000.00 per month to ensure our animals continue to receive the best care possible.

We have been caring for animals since the 1960’s when my great grandparents received their first rescued lion cub back in Rhodesia. Four generations later, Big Cat Experiences continues to care for the welfare of our Lions and Cheetah and assist in critical international research. We have become renound for our ethical approach in our animal care and in the educational experiences we offer our guests for the greater conservation of the species within Southern Africa.


Located in the Bela Bela area and in a first of its kind partnership with the local community, we utilize community land, offer community employment and engender a positive conservational culture within the community. Some of our staff are also the fourth generation who have been working with us and caring for our animals.
