The child-friendly visit
Children under 8 years can now enjoy a shorter educational visit at Panthera Africa on Saturday mornings. Spend the morning learning about lions, tigers, leopards and caracals and meet our magnificent pride. We recommend this visit for children under 8 years who are accompanied by an adult. Enjoy a morning with the big cats as your passionate host takes you around the enclosures and shares the fascinating stories and facts about each species. Your host will touch briefly on the big cat industry but avoid the adult topics of our regular educational visit.
