  • The predatory cat project is concerned with the rescue and rearing of the endangered predatory cats Cheetah, African Wildcat, Serval and Karakal. The cats, which cannot be reintroduced due to illness or habituation to humans anyway, can be visited up close. The guide takes the time to explain everything and answer questions. Admission is relatively expensive, but you also do a good work with it. For small children, however, the stay is not recommended. In any case, it is a nice opportunity to see and photograph the predatory cat up close.
