This was our second visit to Cheetah Experience and we loved it as much as the 1st time. My son was 6 the first time we went and now at 8 it was amazing how much he could remember about the place and the animals. Riana and her team of volunteers have accomplished so much in such a short time... More

I was a student at the University of the Free State several years ago. Being a student in a foreign city, top of my South African bucket list was to touch a lion and cheetah cub. It was a moving experience. Something I would never forget. It somewhat alters your mindset and connects you with a predator and a nurturer.... More
