We are an environmentally friend sanctuary for any captive-bred big cats. One of Panthera Africa's main purposes is to be an educational platform where we create awareness about conditions big cats face in captivity, and how animal welfare and enrichment play a vital role in giving them the best captive life possible. We are a true sanctuary where no cub petting, breeding or trading takes place. We are a blue print of how a non-profit sanctuary, focusing on animal welfare, can become self-sufficient, and we aim to change all breeding facilities into sustainable ethical programs.
We believe in the equal importance of both humans and animals, and we will do our absolute best to give you the experience of a lifetime. We know from personal experience that this includes both quality time with animals, as well as with staff and the other volunteers. Hearing a lion roar up close, getting love and recognition from a leopard, hearing the chuffing of a tiger, or seeing them appreciate and love the toys you make to enrich their lives = BLISS.
There are powerful moments that can and will change the course of your life. More than a decade ago Tshega’s doors were opened, a commitment to start transforming lives, which brought hope to the community. That commitment has now moved over to trust as year after year Tshega kept keeping the promise to educate, empower and transform. Thousands of lives have been impacted by the sacrifice and obedience of people who saw a need and wanted to make a change.1 Review
