Join us for a close and personal tour, on which you can see and hear some of nature's beautiful animals at smiling distance!

If you are looking for a jaw-dropping and heart-warming experience, then Cheetah Experience is a must! We are doing our best to conserve endangered species, with special focus on the conservation and breeding of the cheetah. Other species include lions, leopards, servals, caracals, tiger and wolves.
In order to provide funding for the veterinary bills and care and feeding of the animals, we have opened the doors of this non-profit organization to you, the public. So why not join us for a tour? Details on the tours can be found below. We look forward to seeing you!

Cheetah Experience will be open on all public holidays except 25 & 26 December and 1 January.

What to Expect on a Tour
Our tours are about 60–80 minutes long (depending on the size of the group) and are led by one of our passionate guides. After paying your entrance fee at the Curio shop you will receive 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, tiger, wolves, caracals, servals and meerkats. You will get close to many of the animal enclosures on foot, which provides purrfect photo opportunities.
We have a curio shop with snacks, drinks and souvenirs, however we do not have restaurant facilities, so please plan around this. In the local area are several cafes and restaurants for your enjoyment.

Adopting a ‘wild child’ for yourself as a meaningful gift

By adopting an animal you will be assisting with annual vaccinations of the animal, the upkeep of your animal’s enclosure, and the paying of his/her vet bills. You don’t get to actually take the animal home with you but we do send you an adoption certificate valid for a year along with a branded Cheetah Experience t-shirt.
