“Awesome once in a life time experience!!!”
I booked the Sunrise Cheetah Walk and Wild Cat Combo. Our guide was Joel and we were joined by Mthobisi for the cheetah walk. Joel took us around the centre and was extremely knowledge. He clearly loves his job and his enthusiasm is infectious. He is a real asset to the centre. We learnt a lot and got to see some of the great work that is being done to help sick animals in need. They are even using penguin prosthetics! The cheetah walk was amazing. The cheetah was beautiful and it was wonderful to be so close. Throughout Joel and Mthobisi were fantastic, they took lots of photographs for us and answered all of our questions. What was really reassuring was that throughout it was constantly made clear that the walk was about the cheetahs and not about us. I did some research about this experience before I booked as I did not want to do anything that was merely exploiting animals for profit. I discovered that cheetahs in captivity need to be walked. The places are limited and carried out at times of the day to suit the cheetahs and not the tourists!
