At Stichting Leeuw feline predators in need are sheltered and if possible prepared for reintroduction to the wild. The foundation offers tiger workshops to make people aware of the precarious situation of these animals in the wild and in captivity. The proceeds of the workshop all go towards the realisation of the foundation’s objectives.

Content of the tiger workshop:

  • Follow the keeper’s path to see eye to eye with the big cats.
  • See the inside enclosures, the medical room and the training hall.
  • Watch a big cat hunt prey on the hunting simulator.
  • Receive more information about the objectives of Stichting Leeuw.
  • Enjoy the animal park and the rest of the Landgoed Hoenderdaell, as entry is included in the workshop price.

Price: € 150 per person. The workshop is held six times a week and is led by experienced volunteers. All proceeds go towards the foundation and are spent on the care for the animals. Participants have to be 16 years or older. The workshop takes about 2,5 hours. We regret that less-abled (both physically and mentally) visitors cannot participate; this includes people with crutches or wheelchairs. Reservation is mandatory.
We ask you to arrive at Stichting Leeuw 15 minutes before the workshop starts.
From the entrance of Hoenderdaell it takes about 20 minutes to walk to Stichting Leeuw. Please keep this in mind.

It is not possible to receive cash back when you cancel the workshop.
For changing a reservation to another date, an administration fee of 10 euros will be charged.
