The Cheetah Combo is a popular program which combines time spent with our cheetahs on their daily time out and a guided tour of our centre to see the indigenous cats of South Africa and  other local wildlife at the centre.

Join our cheetahs either in the morning or afternoon as they head through Cape Floral Fynbos and wooded Tsitsikamma Indigenous Forest. This special time in their extended territory forms part of their daily enrichment program. Only a few guests each day are privileged to join the cheetahs for this time out.

During the second part of the program, your guide will show you the indigenous cats of South Africa where you will learn interesting facts about each species and what is contributing to their decline in the wild. You will also gain an insight into the Wildlife Rehabilitation work that is conducted at the centre.

The program includes a beverage and light refreshments.
