The Lion Sanctuary has been caring for rescued and mistreated lions for nearly 20 years.

It is one of only 7 official lion ‘sanctuaries’ in South Africa that are true sanctuaries and do not allow breeding. They operate under strict conditions in which the animals’ best interests are at heart.

The award-winning sanctuary is the largest lion sanctuary in the Western Cape province and provides a ‘forever home’ for over 30 rescued lions. As the lions can never be released into the wild, the sanctuary provides the animals with a safe, comfortable home where they are treated with care and respect. 

Your Contribution

The sanctuary is a not-for-profit organisation. The organisation relies on volunteer fees, animal adoptions and donations to meet the costs of caring for the lions and to enable the rescue of other lions in need. The lions and their accommodations require daily care and attention. Volunteers help to ensure that the lions are well cared for and contribute to their overall wellbeing and quality of life.
