We stopped here on our way back to the airport, hoping to see cheetahs. When we arrived (later than we expected) we realized that we only had about 45 minutes to spend at the sanctuary. Rhona was wonderful enough to ensure that we had an opportunity to see the cheetahs before leaving. Her desire to fulfill our wishes of seeing cheetahs before we left Namibia were fantastic - she contacted a guide and asked him to bring us to the cheetahs on our way out, Once arriving at the cheetahs, we were thrilled to find out that we would have the opportunity to meet and pet all 3. They were beautiful! In addition to the exhilerating experience of spending timewith the cheetahs, we also had an opportunity to take spend a few minutes in the beautifully decorated lodge and see the grounds. This is a definite stop for a few nights on your way in or out of Windhoek. I can't wait to go back and spend a few days enjoying this beautiful sanctuary.
