About Big Cat Experiences
Tours with Lions & Cheetah and create memories to last a lifetime. With over sixty years of experience working with animals, we understand the needs of our Big Cats. Join us in the heart of the African Bush, and for once the words “a walk on the wild side” All of our experiences are tailored around the welfare of our animals, incorporating their natural behaviours and characteristics whilst allowing you to enjoy an unforgettable experience as you join them in their natural habitat for an insightful adventure! Enjoy surreal experiences spending time with our magnificent cheetah and lions in their natural habitat and walk away with a deeper understanding of these incredible Big Cats through the moments you share and the emotional connection you share with them. Ideally located in the heart of the Waterberg and opposite Mabalingwe Nature Reserve, we are only 30 minutes away from Bela Bela’s top holiday resorts and have something for couples or the whole family to enjoy.

What a thrill to be so close to these powerful creatures! Kieran and his team are knowledgeable, professional and really careful when dealing with these big cats. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at the Big Cat Experience.

This was a wonderful experience with the beautiful cats. To be up close to these majestic animals in the wild is an adventure to be remembered. We did the Cheetah walk. The animals (Lions and Cheetah's) are very well cared for and in perfect condition.

We were so privileged to visit this establishment on the 30th of December. The experience was absolutely superior. From the entrance gate, the staff, the beautiful Lions and Cheetah. This was an unforgettable life changing experience! We are already planning our next visit. Can not wait to return.
