A couple of years ago, we had the amazing opportunity to see some Cheetahs while touring the Garden Route Area in South Africa. The kids, at the time, were 10 and 12 years of age – which is a great age to learn about wildlife, environment and conservation.
Getting to the facility can be challenging, as security in this area is particular strong. However, once inside the main gates, the rest is fairly easy to navigate through.
Having a “close up and personal’ experience with a cheetah is a lifetime dream for many people. We were lucky to have this opportunity. For safety reason, the Cheetah is on a lead and rightfully so. We had a quick glimpse of a cheetah in a ‘play mode’ before decided it was time for a little TLC!
A Cheetah Encounter will cost roughly R120 (adult) R80 (child) – based on 2017 prices. There is tea/coffee facilities which means you could quite easily spend the day there. I recommend you also take some pocket money for souveniers. The girls each ‘adopted’ their own ‘faux cheetah’ to take home for show and tell events at school.
