The Big Cat Sanctuary

Ashford, Kent

Big Cat Encounters

Come and see the big cats, up close & personal.


A fantastic opportunity to meet one of the professionals who look after the big cats, and enjoy a guided tour of the site with the opportunity to hand feed one of the cats.

You will be able to get up really close; participants have the opportunity to hand feed one of the cats. The cats will at all times remain safely in their enclosures.

Ranger for the Day

Come and join one of the Keepers for the day as they go about their daily activities, which may include:

  • preparing and delivering food to our cats

  • cleaning out enclosures

  • ensuring our site remains in pristine condition

You will be given an exclusive tour of our cats, by one of the keepers, who will explain about their conservation work both here in Kent and around the world and the opportunity to hand feed one of the cats, as well as the chance to get some really good photos as mementos of your day.

The sanctuary also arrange photography packages and short stay packages at their on-site big cat lodge!
