Pay 20% Less For The Big Cats Experience at Vredenheim

Meet the sibling lions, the talkative duo of Bengal tigers and the feisty and fierce Stellenbosch refugee caracal called Ounooi

Now’s probably the time to tell everyone you’ve got plans for the middle of the week. Because, apart from wine and wildlife, Vredenheim in Stellenbosch has a big cats park that features lions, tigers, a leopard and a quirky caracal. What’s more, you get a 20% discount on the big cats experience every Tuesday and Wednesday (except public- and school holidays) in June, July and August.  

PALE LION, FEISTY CARACAL

Here’s who you’re most likely to meet on this experience.

First, there’s Ounooi – a caracal that was rescued by a nearby Stellenbosch farmer and whose story is usually narrated by the local tour guide. There are also five lions – the most interesting of which has to be, Priester and his siblings. These lions have a melanin (skin pigment) shortage, making them much paler than normal. It’s a genetic condition, but they are not albino, they are more sandy in colour.

A leopard and two Bengal tigers further complement the selection of big cats in the park. The daily feedings at 11am and 3pm are an absolute must-see.

GOOD FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

The park is open daily between from 9am to 5pm (last tour is at 4pm) and guided tours are available for bigger groups. The experience is totally safe for children of all ages, and, for added fun for the little ones, it’s very close to Vredenheim Animal Farm.

This is also a wine farm, though, so there’s plenty of tastings, including gin and craft beer, as well as the Vredenheim game drive experience, to make it fun for everyone.

Bring a camera and prepare to be blown away by the beauty of both the surroundings and the cats that call the park home.

The bill: Tickets normally cost R70 for adults and R45 for kids, however, during June, July and August, Tuesday and Wednesday bookings come with a 20% discount.

Every first Saturday of the month, you also get a 10% discount on Vredenheim’s own unique brand of game drive.
