Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

The Lion and Big Cat Sanctuary is an environmentally friendly sanctuary for any captive bred big cat. At the sanctuary, they will be protected and they can prosper for the rest of their lives.
One of the sanctuary's main purposes is to be an educational platform where volunteers can create awareness about conditions that big cats face in captivity, and how animal welfare and enrichment play a vital role in giving them the best captive life possible.
It is a true sanctuary, where no cub petting, breeding, or trading takes place. It is a blue print of how a nonprofit sanctuary, focusing on animal welfare, can become self-sufficient, and it aims to show all breeding facilities in Southern Africa how they can change into sustainable ethical projects.
The Lion and Big Cat Sanctuary believes in the connection between both environmental and wildlife conservation and aims to become the first green Big Cats sanctuary in South Africa, and run solely on solar energy.
Please note that as a sanctuary, it does not allow animal petting and close interaction with the cats, so volunteers should not expect to play with them and pet them. Any project that allows that kind of interaction cannot be regarded as a true sanctuary.

There is weekly transport included to the grocery shop to stock up.
Please advise us of any known or possible medical condition or dietary restrictions.
Wifi is charged at 50 Zar per week, to be collected upon arrival, so you can easily keep contact with friends and family!
Outside we have a traditional South African braai (BBQ) area, and a lovely pool with a garden to sunbathe on the hot summer days!
Our start and end dates are on Saturdays so please arrive and depart at Cape Town International airport between 10am and 2pm on the specific date. Should you, however, like to make alternative arrangements with us; we will do our best to accommodate you. We can either arrange pick-up and drop-off in Cape Town at an additional cost of R 350 per trip, or on alternative days at an additional cost of R 1500 per trip.
