About My Little Africa Wildlife Sanctuary

My Little Africa Wildlife Sanctuary was initiated for the conservation of near extinct species in the region. Two of both genders of serval are in residence to breed with, while the caracal gene pool contains the scarce white colour variation that seldom appears in nature. The sanctuary aims to protect such animals.

Accommodation includes three self-catering units; the Serval, the Cheetah and the Rooikat Hut. The Serval hut is a two-bedroom unit situated close to the swimming pool with spacious open-plan lounge and fully-equipped kitchen. The unit sleeps up to eight guests and has a private deck. The Cheetah Hut is a unique, airy unit with a tropical island feeling and is ideal for a maximum of four guests. The Rooikat Hut is a self-catering open-plan unit with braai facilities. All the huts are also equipped with a TV with hotel package DStv available.

Attractions include the Bush Bar with barbecue facilities, swimming in the natural spring water pool, and animal viewing which also includes lions. Other activities nearby encompass golf within walking distance, hiking, bird watching, bicycle touring, horse riding, and visits to Golden Gate and Clarens.

Safari: Serval, Black-backed jackal, caracal and porcupine, which are rarely seen in the wild due to near extinction, can be viewed any time day and night.

As I am a lover of nature and mountains, I truly enjoyed my stay at My Little Africa, between numerous wonderful wild animals. Attie, the owner, is extremely helpful and friendly.

We stayed for one day only. This was the start of our vacation. The idea is good with animals, although some animals looked trapped. Do not expect luxury. For a small town like Kestell, I expect it was okay. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We expected to find a sanctuary program, instead it was a breading program. It was nice to see and hear the lions and the other cats in such close proximity.

Ons het baie lekker gekuier saam met Attie en Lindie, en sal verseker weer teruggaan. Wat 'n lieflike plek - en so naby aan die natuur! Dit was 'n wonderklike ervaring om aan die leeus en ander katte te kon vat! Baie dankie!

We absolutely had to extend our visit and stay an extra night at this beautiful, well cared for sanctuary with its friendly and caring hosts. And we will most definitely visit it again in future.
