Its always a pleasure to visit. For a very modest price one gets to see animals up close and informed by knowledgeable staff. It's about my 12th visit and I've always enjoyed the experience. A gem.

Not only are you supporting the center by attending, but you are helping expand the knowledge base on endangered species. They house wild dogs, multiple species of vultures and other small predators as well as the cheetahs. Obviously they have to allow public viewing to...More

Thank you for taking the time to post this wonderful review. Ann's emphasis has always been on education, and if we can teach just one person about our amazing animals and conservation, then the work we are doing is paying off.

Many thanks for your review. Education is one of our most important sectors of the centre especially with our youth.

Very educational and a first for touching cheetahs. Must admit that it was a bit unnerving. The wild dog enclosure was also spectacular!

Greatly setup center to support the animal and bird species threatened with extension. Cheetahs, wild dogs and west cape vultures, in particular.
