Sustainable Use Policy
The core of everything we do at Big Cat Experiences comes from a love of, and deep respect for, all animals and our natural world. We are here to share our love of animals and passion for conservation. All our activities and attractions are aimed at educating people through interaction with our wildlife and its natural habitat. Our goal is for every visitor to:
- Learn at least one new thing about our animals and;
- To take at least one breathtaking moment away with them and to then;
- Share their moment with at least one other person.
Big Cat Experiences, its owners, and employees do not condone or support in any way, the unethical and unsustainable use of any animal. All of our lions have been spayed and cannot breed. We don’t just stop there, we also have a policy whereby we do not conduct “cub petting” of any kind, instead we pride ourselves as one of the very few organizations in Southern Africa where you only interact with fully grown, adult Lions and Cheetah.
Big Cat Experiences is also in no way affiliated with, nor involved in, the breeding or sale of any of our animals.
Big Cat Experiences is a fully licensed and accredited organization who strive to ensure that the welfare of our animals comes before anything else. As an ethical business, we have a zero-tolerance policy for the inhumane treatment of any animal, whether within the conservancy or beyond.
None of our animals are drugged, de-clawed or have had their teeth removed and Big Cat Experiences maintains a transparency policy, whereby we openly invite members of the public and the greater community to inspect our facilities and our animals at any time.
