This sanctuary focuses on being a safe haven for big cats, in addition to being an educational platform to raise awareness about the truth behind the lion and tiger industry in South Africa, and to give volunteers a unique opportunity to take part in a truly purposeful and ethical project! They share their passion, love and dedication with you, and show how animal welfare plays a crucial role in giving them the best captive life possible.

Located on 40 Hectares of land filled with the unique fynbos, large trees, a natural spring and a stunning mountain view, is what we call ‘the paradise’ that is considered home to these amazing creatures!

The work with the wildlife on the Sanctuary can be physically demanding, yet very rewarding! Join the pride and learn about the many issues that these wild animals face in captivity and get a better understanding about them and also, what it takes to care for them on a day to day basis.

The sanctuary is located in Stanford, South Africa which is the rural areas situated in the heart of the Cape Whale and White Shark Coast about 140 km from Cape Town.
