Amazing work at the Lionsrock Big Cat Sanctuary & Lodge

The LIONSROCK Big Cat Sanctuary & Lodge is situated 13km from Bethlehem.

With an ever-increasing need to home rescued big cats from zoos, circuses and private keeping, global animal welfare organisation FOUR PAWS headed to South Africa in 2006 in search of an appropriate home for these animals. That is when the property was found where LIONSROCK is today. Not only would it become the home of rescued big cats from across the globe, but those already on the property would no longer face an uncertain future – at the height of so-called canned hunting and destined to become trophies or breeding machines. In 2008, LIONSROCK Big Cat Sanctuary opened its door to the public with the lodge offering accommodation, a restaurant and a variety of activities including educational sanctuary drives. Over the course of a few years, LIONSROCK is now home to more than 100 big cats – lions, tigers, leopards and a three-legged cheetah. It’s not only a world-class sanctuary where animals come to recover from their pasts, but also where people escape from their busy lives, taking a moment to reflect on life and enjoy the spectacular views and nature the Eastern Free State has to offer.
