About Us


More About Our Story...

Ubuntu Wildlife Sanctuary is an approved Public Benefit Organization (PBO Reference No. 930072927) for the following activity:

We have provided our predators with a safe haven, free from poaching and exploitation, where they can prosper for the rest of their lives.

Our 1650 hectare property is the ideal place for these cats to have enclosures big enough for them to roam around in the natural environment of fynbos and trees, present in each enclosure. As these cats come from captive breeding, zoo’s and circuses, this is something that they absolutely thrive on.

As a true sanctuary we do not breed or trade with our animals and we have a no hands-on interaction policy in place.

Ubuntu’s aim is to be an educational platform where we can create awareness to the well being and caring for cats in captivity. As these cats cannot hunt for themselves or have the freedom to explore vast areas, we have an enrichment program which plays a vital part in animal management in human care.
