The Big Cat Sanctuary

The Big Cat Sanctuary is set in the heart of the countryside at Smarden, in Kent.

The peace and tranquillity of the site provides a sanctuary and excellent conditions for the successful breeding of the beautiful, yet endangered cats both large and small within the European Endangered Species Breeding Programme.

To raise much needed funds the charity relies on donations and specialised experiences, including Ranger for the Day, Big Cat Encounters, Photographic Workshops, Overnight Big Cat Safari Experience and Big Cat Adoptions.
