Lionsrock Big Cat Sanctuary and Game Reserve
Situated just 18km form the Eastern Free State town of Bethlehem, the Lionsrock Big Cat Sanctuary offers visitors an opportunity to see various species of African Big Cat in a mountain environment that long ago lost its large predators thanks to rampant hunting in the Colonial days.
The Eastern Free State Highlands are also scenically spectacular, with fascinating sandstone formations that glow in the evening light and which characterise this area.
Other animals you can see at Lionsrock include Bat Eared Fox, Caracal (Rooikat), African Wild Dog, Blesbok, Blue Wildebeest, Eland, Impala, Red Hartebeest, Springbok, Waterbuck and Zebra.
“The definition of a sanctuary is entrenched in our policy: Hunting, breeding and trading of wild animals is strictly prohibited.”
Getting there: Take the R714 east from Bethlehem, turning off at the first right as you leave town. Follow the signs for Lionsrock.
