A really heartwarming and educational experience with a lovely guide, Steph! Absolutely amazing seeing how much Panthera loves and cares for their animals. I highly recommend to anyone visiting the Overberg, it's more than worth it!

It was great, it really made us think about places we have been to before and places we’re looking at going to in the future. Steph was very knowledgeable and engaging, and made us think about aspects of parks/safaris , that we never thought about before.

It was great to see these big cats up close. The sanctuary is not a zoo, it’s a big cat rescue. There were two tigers, three lions, two carcals and a cheetah. Each cat had a rescue story.

My favorite part was the elderly cheetah. She came up to the fence, lay down, and started purring. It’s one thing to know they can purr, it’s quite another to hear it for yourself.

What a wonderful visit to this big cat sanctuary. All the animals are rescued, protected and cared for by a brilliant team of volunteers. Special thank you to Alice our guide for the visit. Her knowledge regarding the animals and their history along with the stories around their characters was exceptional. Well worth a visit. Thanks to all the team

What a wonderful experience to visit these beautiful animals in their natural environment. They have all had some kind of trauma in their past life and have now been rescued to live a happy and peaceful life. Our lovely guide Alice gave us so much information in a delightful way. Her passion for these gorgeous animals shone through. I would recommend this visit to everyone it is a must!!!

This was our second visit! It is a very worthy, ethical sanctuary. The guide was very knowledgeable about each animal and we enjoyed hearing their heart wrenching stories and the positives about their new home. Animals are given rehab and encouraged to return to being as wild as they can be. It is interesting and eye opening to hear about the animal trade and how devastating it is to these animals we should revere and hold sacred. It is not a zoo, while cats are in enclosures, they may hide away, that is their right. These are wild animals that have been rescued and are in rehab. All staff are clearly passionate and caring to the animals and we had a wonderful experience.

I volunteered at Panthera Africa and it was the most amazing experience I’ve ever had! Panthera Africa is a true sanctuary. The whole experience is very educational and eye opening. I highly recommend coming to Panthera as a volunteer or just to visit. You will get a lot more out of volunteering than just visiting, but visiting is still worthwhile

After our visit to your sanctuary our 10 year old son told us that one day he would like to run a sanctuary like Panthera Africa. You guys are doing wonderful work and thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge with us Becky, you are an excellent guide. It was also a privilege being part of the group that saw your visitor number hit 25,000 which is an awesome milestone for you guys.
Please visit the Sanctuary, you will not be disappointed and your contribution enables them to keep on protecting these beautiful cats and raising awareness. All the best!

Very poor and very bad experience. Our guide was unprofessional and with a very bad attitude she didn’t allow us to see the animals freely it was a waste of money and time.
