One cannot but feel so very privileged to actually take a cheetah for a walk! What an experience it was to interact with Zimbali and Chester, two of four cheetahs at Tenikwa. Joel, Patrick and Mzizi, our guides, were most competent and knowledgeable and the preservation of cheetahs was one of the many topics covered. Walking a cheetah on a leashed harness took a bit of getting used to! The best was sitting with Zimbali, scratching the scruff of her neck as her purring got louder and louder. It was so tempting to give her a hug! Note though – the rules must be adhered to at all times and if you can do that, then you are in for the experience of a lifetime.
