The concept of a breeding program for endangered species is interesting. However this is not,in my opinion, happening here! The animals were too used to human contact, isolated in large cages with no trees or grass just man made wooden structures. There was no breeding...More

Interesting visit but felt that it was rushed and not too exciting, It was very hot and uncomfortable. We did not get a chance to touch the cheetah. Their collection of cats is good. The whole exhibit could do with a few more trees though....More

The place is run by people who are serious about conservation. Adults can stroke the cheetahs and generally you get to see all the big cats up quite close, as well as a pair of entertaining hyena! Small children need to be kept quiet by...More

We went to the Daniell Cheetah project on our tour from Addo. For 80 ZAR, it was gorgeous to be guided around for 1h and see many wild cats (lions, servals, caracals, leopards,...) and especially the cheetahs. We had the chance to touch the cheetah...More
