is an animal welfare project by FOUR PAWS.
It provides an appropriate, lifelong home for big cats that were kept in inadequate conditions in zoos, circuses or private captivity and therefore cannot be released into the wild.

Our rescued Big Cats

More than hundred big cats have been rescued from all over the world.


By Air Plane

Many European airports - such as London or Frankfurt - offer direct flights to Johannesburg. From there it is only a three hour drive to LIONSROCK.

By Car

LIONSROCK is situated 18km outside of Bethlehem, of which 13km is a gravel road. From the R714 , we recommend taking the S175 instead of the S206 for a shorter gravel road. Follow our signs until you reach our gates.

By Transfer

We organise your transfer from OR Tambo International Airport, the international Airport Johannesburg
