Big Cats Experience


Held at a private sanctuary near Welwyn, Hertfordshire, this experience offers a truly special opportunity to get up-close and personal with some of the most majestic Big Cats.
With a 12 month membership to the Cat Survival Trust included, access to the small cat house on our experience day, and the chance to photograph Jaguar, Puma, Lynx, Leopard and so many more, you're sure to have an amazing day.

On The Day

Unlike a Zoo this site offers only 1 mesh fence (for safety) for us to negotiate when photographing, meaning we're closer to the animals and able to remove any hazing and wire form the shots more easily.
  • Who will be there on the day
  • The experience will be led by a member of our Award Winning Academy Training Team and our partners at the venue. Our Trainers are experienced photographers and have a broad knowledge of all cameras to ensure you gain even better understanding of your camera, settings, control and composition for wildlife photography while you're with us.
    You'll also learn a lot about the animals we photograph as our partners specialise in animal welfare, conservation, and education.
  • Suggested Knowledge
  • Our expert tutor will be on hand throughout to support and guide you through all your camera controls and settings relevant for the day. Some knowledge of Aperture, Shutter and ISO is advisable, but not essential. Tea and coffee are provided but please bring a packed lunch as there are no catering facilities or shops on-site, a small shop is in th enearby village less than 2 miles away.
