Drakenstein Lion Park is the only genuine lion sanctuary in the Western Cape, with the largest lion population, including rare white lions.

Drakenstein Lion Park is now home to a new facility, Chimp Haven. This facility has been purpose built to house the animals displace by the closure of Tygerberg Zoo and is a lifetime home to chimpanzees and a host of other small animals.
