You get to see a cheetah from very close (and even walk with it) and your money helps to look after them. Great pictures and thrill guaranteed!

I am so sorry that you were not able to visit our project. We had posted on our Facebook page that we are closed for an indefinite period but not on our Website. We will post on our Website too. Thank you for your feedback.

I was there and have pictures to prove it. The day I was there a woman was attacked by a cat which is documented in newspapers. I want trip advisor to allow me to tell visitors to not go into enclosures with the cats.
