This is the kind of place that manages to work as an education center and a tourist destination very well. The entrance fee is very, very low making it one of the most affordable ways to see cheetahs, jackals, servals and caracals. They provide tours...More

It was an experience to see and to touch one of these majestic animals. My son also got to spend some time with Sebastien the meere cat, he was so cute and cuddly. Something I got to share with my son and will never forget

What an awesome place where you can really tell that they care about these animals and educating the people who visit. In the States it's hard to find good sanctuaries for animals where they are not just for profit. I've never been to a place...More

We got to pet the two cubs and watch them get fed. I suggest going at 3:30 so that you can watch the animals being fed after your encounter. The programme is a great initiative for cheetah conservation.

We spent half a day at the Cheetah Outreach, which I think in some way resembles a petting zoo of exotic animals. However, I am not using the term “petting zoo” in any derogative manner: we got to touch an adult cheetah, hugger a meerkat,...More

Chance to pet a cheeta was cool & worth the price of admission. A bona fide rescue/conservation project & the cats have room to move about so no need to feel guilty about captivity. Not, however, worth more than a walk-in walk-out & apparently there...More
