At Zululand Cat Conservation we have ambassador animals which we use for breeding and the off spring to be released back into the wild hence the reason for the low numbers of animals in our project. A maximum of 12 animals including any off spring per specie. Come and be mesmerised by the beauty of the Caracal (Lynx), enchanted by the playful Serval, astonished by the speed and agility of the Cheetah and delighted by the African Wildcat.
The aim of the Zululand Cat Conservation is to care for Cheetahs, Serval Cats, African Wildcats and Caracal (Lynx), which have been orphaned or injured in the wild and are in need of care and rehabilitation. We also intend to breed successfully (where possible) with our ambassador animals and release the offspring back into their natural habitat. We pride ourselves on the many successful releases done in the past. Read More
