Lion Kimba ZA

Feeding of the lions

A species-appropriate home for more than 100 animals – mainly big cats rescued from zoos, private captivity or the entertainment industry.

The big cats at LIONSROCK are fed with an average of 35 kilo of meat with bones per animal per week (which is about 25 kilo meat per animal per week excluding bone). About half of the meat fed to the animals is donated by surrounding farmers, who offer the carcasses when cows die from natural causes. The balance of the meat requirements has to be purchased, which becomes very costly during the seasons when there are no cow carcasses to donate.
