There’s lots to see; twenty big loud cats, keeper talks, hand-feeding, enrichments, and more!
All visitors must book online. If you are a tour or school group, you should arrange your bookings with the office by telephone. We regret visitors without bookings are not permitted on the premises, so please, don’t be disappointed and book first. We cannot accept bookings for unaccompanied children (15 years and under). By booking ahead we make sure you are not trying to see our beautiful cats over the heads of lots of other people, and, the cats don’t get stressed by too much activity around them.
For the disabled
It is possible, but not ideal, to wheelchair around the Sanctuary. We have golf carts with our guided tours (Silver and Gold). Please discuss any requirements for this with the office, as disabled or mobility impaired patrons can access this service at no additional charge, outside the normal tour times. Please contact the office directly to arrange.
We have well-marked ample parking within easy walking distance, and we have extra parking capacity also within easy walking distance when necessary.
What to bring
A hat if it’s sunny, and sensible shoes. We promise you will be more comfortable walking around the Sanctuary for two or three hours if your feet are happy.
Pick your route
Our Big Cats are the star attractions at Kamo Wildlife Sanctuary and they’re awe-inspiring to watch. Download our map to work out which way you want to go when you get here and aim for the Cats you most want to see first. (Link to map) Once you’re here, the enclosures are clearly identified and have basic information on each of our Big Cats. Or, you may prefer to book a guided tour (Silver or Gold) with our friendly, professional staff who really love sharing their knowledge on all the Big Cats.
Food and Drink
It’s a day out, so we definitely have better than ordinary food for hungry cat-lovers in our rather special food wagon. We’re building a café, but that’s going to take time. Food may only be eaten inside the designated food court. We apologise in advance, but you will be asked to return to the food court until your food has been consumed. This is an important regulation which ensures our cats are not fed anything apart from their carefully tailored diet. We are a Sanctuary first, and our primary job is to keep our cats safe, and healthy. It is very important also, that all rubbish is placed in the bins as it also poses a risk to the big cats should it find its way into the enclosures.
For the cats
Most of our cats are under threat in the wild, and the Barbary Lion is extinct in the wild. Please enjoy being able to see our Big Cats which the Sanctuary is designed to house and protect. They love a bit of interaction but they must not be fed, or goaded. Help us keep these magnificent species on the planet for future generations to marvel over. We really appreciate your visit, and your enjoyment of these wonderful animals, and we just love your feedback.
