Big Cat Farm Volunteer program

BIG CAT FARM VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

At the Wild Cat Farm it is all about the animals. We believe in the rights and protection of animals.  The farm is home to a variety of wild animals such as lions, cheetahs, servals, caracals, %tagblack footed cats, the mischievous meercats and more.  The farm acts as a home to wild cats that are not able to be released back into the wild, as well as a nursery for cubs that are brought to the farm by neighboring breeders to be hand raised before they are relocated onto reserves.

The farm is currently applying to become an animal sanctuary in the Free State region and you can be a part of this amazing transition. We provide a safe haven to wild animals who are in need of a home and ensure that injured and traumatized animals receive proper medical care.

The farm offers you an opportunity to work / interact with the animals and gain exposure to all activities from cleaning, building enclosures, feeding, playing with the animals and much more, as well as the opportunity to unwind in a relaxing Free State setting.

Project Highlights

• Work hands on with the big cats such as lions and cheetahs
• Work hands on with small cats such as caracals and servals
• Live a few meters from the lions and cheetah enclosures Experience firsthand all aspects of the animals’ life
• Be part of a very passionate team
• Learn about Conservation and Africa’s wild animals Experience hand rearing of wild cat youngsters
• Experience the farm animals living free amongst the wild animals
• Interact and play with wild animals

What’s Included

• Return Transfer from Johannesburg Airport
• All meals
• Accommodation
• 24 hour support and supervisor
• Donation to the project

The animals that live permanently on the farm are animals that were rescued and can’t be released for many reasons, usually because of injury and an inability to hunt these animals that are kept in enclosures and used for educating the public and raising awareness. Our passion is to take care of the animals and ensure their health and safety. The farm is a nursery for new born cubs and a sanctuary for injured animals, which 99% of the time get rehabilitated and released. Those that can’t get released will stay on the farm. It is our duty to protect and preserve all animal species and all volunteer help would be greatly appreciated and targeted towards this cause.The volunteers will contribute by physically allowing the farm to care for more animals.  As we are working to become the only official sanctuary in the Free state we need to clear the farm of all alien vegetation, make it suitable for the indigenous wildlife, and create enclosures for animal rehabilitation.All volunteer donations will be used towards the upkeep of the animals and creating the sanctuary.

Volunteer Tasks

Volunteers will help with the daily running of the farm duties which include:

• Fence patrols-daylight guided walks around the farm to check areas of the electric fence which require fixing
• Road maintenance
• Cleaning of enclosures
• Educational tours for guests
• Alien plant removal
• Building and extending an enclosure for the new animal sanctuary
• Feeding and socializing with the animals and cubs
• Preparing food and cleaning the animal kitchen and refrigerators
