Cheetah and Lion Experiences

We are closed due to COVID-19


Big Cat Experiences has regrettably closed for the remainder of 2021  due to the issues we’ve faced during COVID-19 that have had a detrimental impact on our business.


We hope to open again in the future and we are still searching for donations to help us revive Big Cat Experiences and provide the care & conditions that our big cats deserve.


Please donate to help us re-open in the future by visiting:



Big Cat Experiences guarantees you an up-close-and-personal experience unlike any other with our stunning Lions and Cheetahs.


Learn about these majestic animals without fences or game vehicles getting in the way.


There is no better way to become one with nature and be left humbled and with a feeling of complete peace and serenity.


Our professional guides know our animals well and the key to a safe and ethical interaction is respecting the animal and being aware that they are allowing us to share their natural surroundings with them.


It’s an incredible once in a lifetime experience to tell your friends about!

Morning with the Cats 🦁🐆


R4900 for 4 people

Come and spend a whole morning at Big Cat Experiences and meet all of our majestic cats. We have an awesome day of experiences planned, just for you and your loved ones!


We will meet you on arrival with Savanna, one of our Cheetah and get to know her with some tea, coffee and rusks. We will then give you your very own guided tour where you will meet the rest of our Lions and Cheetah.


After that, we will take you out with two of our ten-year-old lionesses for a walk in our pristine 150 HA reserve, where you will be able to spend time with them and experience them displaying their natural behaviours whilst enjoying the bush.


Once we have worked up a bit of an appetite, we will then take the cheetah up to our beautiful picnic spot that is set under a gorgeous tree in the middle of the bush. You can then enjoy a delicious selection of cheeses, crackers, cold, meats, fruit, water and appletizer and all this in the company of one of our Cheetah. (You are welcome to bring your own bottle of wine or bubbly).


Once you have finished your picnic, you will finish your morning off with some lion feeding where you will be able to feed Jack, Lundi and Dora! There are plenty of photo opportunities throughout.
