Jukani is located just off the N2 highway when heading from Cape Town towards Mossel Bay. A sanctuary for cats and predators established by Jurg and Karen Olsen, that allows an opportunity to see the animals from up close. Beautiful animals, but I’m not sure about the continued human contact and ‘cuddling’. It’s a little disconcerting to see Jurg enter the cage and embrace the male lion. Personally I’d rather see them wild and free, but then maybe I’m just slightly envious that I’m not in there getting the hug myself …. Your thoughts?
