Many thanks for your review. Education is one of our most important sectors of the centre especially with our youth.

Greatly setup center to support the animal and bird species threatened with extension. Cheetahs, wild dogs and west cape vultures, in particular.

I took the private tour of the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Sanctuary. It was a wonderful experience. I definitely felt that the private tour was worth the extra money. They have stopped doing the ambassador experience where guests pet the cheetah which I totally agree...More

Morning - many thanks for your review. Yes, our family tour unfortunately does not go into the enclosures like a normal tour does - this is for the safety of the children. We are glad that you had an enjoyable day with us.

Beverly our tour guide was amazing. She was so knowledgeable about all the animals and gave us much insight into the lives of the animals in the bush. This centre does wonderful work towards saving the cheetah species. Well worth your time.

The general visiting area is wheel chair friendly. You may(!) find some difficulties when doing the drive around the park, which is worthwhile by the way.
