Our outdoor tours are about 60—80 minutes long (depending on the size of the group) and are guided by one of our passionate volunteers. After paying your entrance fee at the Curio shop you will have a quick audiovisual that provides an informative introduction to the necessary rules and regulations.
Your guide will offer educational information about many species and the threats they face in our modern world. You will also have the opportunity to see and photograph cheetahs, lions, leopards, wolves and meerkats, and may have a chance to interact with some of the smaller cats, depending on many different factors on the day. Ensuring that none of the animals becomes stressed is of prime importance, so interaction with animals cannot be guaranteed. You will, however, get close to many of the animal enclosures on foot, which provides purrfect photo opportunities.
