  • What a nice surprise. A wild cat farm just outside Bloemfontein and I can bring family along to spend Christmas day braai g or doing buffet. Great place.
  • If you want a no fuss wildlife experience close-up, then this is the place. We had the most amazing experience walking along when predictors were fed. To see each behaviour when getting their meal, to listen to the growling and cracking of bones. The people are friendly, approachable and knowledgeable knowing all animals and birds' histories. To sit in front of your room/or lie in bed looking at the lion roaring and jackal calling. To walk at night past the enclosures alone. This is a place who took in and take care of all injured, orphaned and saved animals. Even lions been saved from can hunting. There is no cutlery in the rooms just coffee, kettle and fridge. Find out when making a booking if they do cater for meals.
  • It was awesome. Will do it again.
  • Wonferful place! All the animals are saved (most of them), cured, beloved and cuddled as a son. If any animal can leave the Zanchieta, they control everything and then they leave into the wild. Go for visit it!
  • Great experience! And a great tour. Would definitely recommend them!
