Visiting Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary is not just about seeing lions, tigers, leopards, wild dogs
Your tour at Jukani is an informative experience. Our experienced and trained guides will take you on an informative tour and introduce you to all our feline and other wildlife members. Our guides will tell you more about the dangers these animals face in the wild and share with you interesting facts of each species. They will explain the important role of a black backed jackal and that they are actually very brave critters. Or they tell you about the vital role spotted hyenas fulfill in the wild.
What has Jukani wildlife Sanctuary to offer?
It is home to big cats such as lions (white and tawny), cheetahs, tigers (Siberian, Bengal and white), leopard (spotted and black), jaguar, pumas, caracal, serval cats. They also have other wildlife species such as zebra, wild dog, springbuck, zorilla, honey badger, raccoons and various snake species (which are housed separately). The focus is on conservation education and specifically the plight of large predators in captivity, in South Africa and all over the world. “Big cats” are extraordinary animals with a dangerous beauty that is both awe inspiring but also fearsome, because of their power and ability to kill. However at most wildlife facilities various wildlife species and especially large predatory species are kept as a way of attracting visitors. This without regard for the animals’ physical and emotional needs, they are just commodities to attract visitors. The Jukani approach is one of respect for what each animal represents. All the female predator cats are on birth control, and the sanctuary is a no-touch facility.
Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary has secured the future of all its predator cats and wildlife. The South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance is the sole custodian of all the Jukani inhabitants. The Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary funds itself by means of responsible eco-tourism and we strive to achieve an effective balance between conservation and economic reality.
