Big Cats, Tours and Volunteering Opportunities at Cheetah Experience!

Our Mission: Passionate, driven conservation efforts to save endangered species through captive breeding and awareness.

We invite you to join us for a "See, Sense, Touch" tour.

We are all about wild cats for big cat lovers! If you are looking for a jaw-dropping, hands-on 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 and wolves.

In order to raise money for our non-profit organisation, we have opened our doors 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!


We need your contributions! Can you help with our wishlist?

Volunteer Jobs Available!

What to Expect on a Tour

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 gather at the LAPA for a quick audiovisual which provides an informative introduction to the necessary rules and regulations.

Thereafter, you will get to see and photograph cheetahs, lions, leopards, wolves and meerkats and interact with servals, caracals and cheetah cubs when available. Getting close to all the animal enclosures on foot provides purrfect photo opportunities.
