You are still able to place orders online, but we will only be able to dispatch them once regulations change.
Wildlife conservation is something we are very passionate about and we believe that it is our responsibility to conserve this treasure for future generations.
The Drakenstein Lion Park, our conservation partner, borders several of our vineyard blocks and the roars from the lions can frequently be heard from our visitor centre, making the park a very real part of the Glen Carlou experience. For every bottle of Haven sold, Glen Carlou donates a Rand per bottle to the Park. These funds are crucial in enabling the park to continue their conservation work.
With an estimated 20 000 lions left in the wild and a continuous decline which has lead to the extinction of wild lions in 26 African countries; sanctuaries like the Drakenstein Lion Park are crucial in educating and raising awareness, aligned with the need to conserve. We are proud to be associated with a park that does such admirable work in improving the quality of life of lions in captivity, locally as well as internationally.
The Park is not involved in commercial breeding or trade and offers lifetime care to all of its animals. All the animals brought to the Park are captive bred / hand reared and cannot be rehabilitated to the wild, but given a chance to living out their natural lives in an enriched and safe environment.
We encourage you to take a drive to The Drakenstein Lion Park located on the Old Paarl Road (R101) near Klapmuts and visit the home of this fantastic cause.
