This place is brilliant if you want to see cheetah up close. They offer the chance to stroke and interact with cheetah and cubs. All the cheetahs are well looked after.

I went with high expectations and whilst it was interesting, it did not particularly live up to expectations. It was interesting to learn of the dog breeding programme which protect livestock. You can purchase a cheetah or cub 'experience' where you get to stroke the...More

An encounter takes about 20 minutes, and you can look around the rest in 30 minutes.
