Panthera Africa Big Cat Sanctuary Enrichment Visits

Join the team at Panthera Africa Big Cat Sanctuary for a 2hr excursion of play and excitement. During this time you will work with a Panthera Africa animal keeper to create small enrichment items, which will be given to the big cats.

Watch the cats run, jump and play as your handmade toys bring joy and fun to their lives. You will also get to see the implementation of a bigger enrichment that was lovingly made by their volunteers and staff members.

Learn about the different types of enrichment, why you make them, and why it is so beneficial for captive big cats. Listen in awes as your passionate host takes you around the big cat enclosures and tells you their interesting and inspiring stories. Every Enrichment Visit is different, so you never know what you are going to see!

Panthera Africa offers you the opportunity to experience parts of their enrichment program where you can see both big and smaller cats in action, and be able to capture these unforgettable active moments on camera.
