Wild Cat Farm

WELCOME TO ZANCHIETA

We are situated in the heart of the Free State province in South Africa just 22 kilometres from the city of Bloemfontein. 

We are a Wild Cat rehabilitation facility and home to an extensive "pride", consisting of many of South Africa's great (and lesser) cats.
It offers exclusive, luxurious accommodation and great conferencing facilities.  Daily Guided Walking Tours are a special event, where guests are able to meet and see all the residents, including our magnificent male white lion, William Wallace, offering amazing photo opportunities. 
So be sure to bring your camera! 

Contact us for an appointment and more information.
