Jukani provides the predators that live here sanctuary for the duration of their natural lives in an environment where they are respected and cared for, physically and emotionally.
The harsh reality is that no predator that has been exposed to human interaction over a period of time, can ever be returned to the wild. However, that doesn't imply that they can be exploited by unethical wildlife facilities by allowing animal touching/petting or any other practise where these animals are exploited for human greed and financial gain only.
At Jukani the main 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.
The Jukani approach is one of respect for what each animal represents and we have a personal bond, build on respect and love, with each of the animals living at the sanctuary. We believe that each animal should be treated as an individual with his/her own unique personality and needs.
Go on a 1 ½ hour guided tour through the 17 hectare sanctuary with one of our trained and professional guides to learn all about the animals homed at Jukani. With specially build photography ramps for the photographer in you, filming is made easy without the fence in the way.
