What is it?

How can you learn about big cats, whilst giving back to genuine conservation projects and having an amazing time in Africa? Welcome to our BIG CAT ROUTE

Captured In Africa’s Big Cat Route is unique to us, designed by us and incorporates some very special relationships we have been lucky enough to build within both the tourism & conservation industries.
In offering our Big Cat Route, we hope travellers can experience Africa and understand the conservation issues currently affecting big cats. Your eyes will be opened to both captive and wild big cat situations, you will understand and discover the threats & issues affecting these endangered lions, leopards & cheetahs, what we need to do to help them and who the people are on the ground protecting them.
Captured In Africa’s Big Cat Route is our opportunity to educate, encourage & #savebigcats
