FAQs

What is your address?

As we are open strictly by appointment, we do not advertise or provide our address until a booking is made and confirmed.

Do we need to book a tour?

Yes. All of our tours are pre-booked. Private tours are available Wednesday to Sunday each week, with only two tours a day, a morning and afternoon tour. Our weekends are most popular and often book 4 to 6 weeks in advance.

How do I book a tour?

All bookings are done via email, not over the phone. Please email us at info@wildcatcentre.org.au for all booking enquiries.

Can children visit the centre?

We have a strict age limit of 16 years due to the nature of our centre and the tours that we offer. No age exceptions are provided.

Can I take photos during my tour?

Our staff will take some photos for you during your tour on our own camera, we will then email them to you a few days following your visit.

We find this way guests can fully immerse themselves in their tour and enjoy learning about the work we are doing and meeting our beautiful cats.

Do you accept volunteers or work placement?

No. We receive a bunch of emails each week from people wishing to get involved in the conservation of wild cats which is great, and it is heart-warming to know there are so many passionate individuals out there that love wild cats as much as we do.

Though we are a small organization and do not have the capabilities to host or sponsor international students, and we do not believe in accepting payment from volunteers so that they can work with us. We also do not offer internships or work experience/work placement. We rely on our small dedicated team here at WCCC to manage and care for our cats.

Local based individuals studying zookeeping or wildlife related courses can apply though must commit to being available one day a week for a minimum period of 12 months. To apply, please email a cover letter, your CV and references to info@wildcatcentre.org.au

Email enquiries regarding volunteering that do not include the above requested information will not be responded to.

What is an enrichment walk?

Each day our cats are allowed to come out of their habitats for walks around our sanctuary. These enrichment walks extends our cats lives beyond their enclosures and provide our cats with unparalleled stimulation and physical as well as mental enrichment. Guests are allowed to join our staff and cats on these walks, though it is the cats time and we are merely guests on the cats walk. No public interaction is guaranteed, though majority of our guests do get to touch our cats and are provided a photo opportunity at some point during the walk, it is all at the discretion of our cats. Our private tours are designed as an insight into the lives of wild cats and our conservation work in Botswana, they are not paid photo opportunities.
