About the Program

The farm is situated on the border of the Free State and Northern Cape and is home to an abundance of big and small African cats, such as, Lions and African Wild Cats. The farm is not only a home for cats, but other animals as well. We have a large family of Meerkats who run free, there are Black Back Jackals, Bat-Eared Foxes, Vervet Monkeys and a few other interesting guests from the animal kingdom. The farm not just a home but a Sanctuary; we house animals that have been hurt, mistreated, or that need to be relocated. Animals that are not able to be relocated or released, will live their lives in peace on the farm.

Our goal is to raise the big cats that we have as naturally as possible so that they can be released into the wild, where they will be re-populating a diminishing population. Some cubs will be kept at the program as ambassadors that will help to educate people the importance of our animals!

Since we started in 2010, we have released 2 Caracals. Furthermore, We have released more animals on the Langberg Guest Farm, as well as on our own farm, such animals include; Jakkels, Meerkats, misseljaatkatte (Cape Genet), African Wild Cats, Muishonde and more.

We are completely against Canned Hunting and we can proudly say that we have saved 12 Lions from being hunted.

You will receive a 2 day Volunteer Johannesburg Orientation: Arrive in Joburg or Jozi, as it is known locally, and get shown around by people who know the city well.
