Up close with majestic cheetahs!

We did this two days in a row! We start at the owners home where they have 3 adult cheetahs who were rescued as orphan cubs. We had a seat on the grass in the back of the house... read more

We camped on site and took their afternoon tour to visit the cheetahs. The campsites were ok. We weren't expecting much. Ablutions were clean with hot water. Swimming pool to cool off. Must be self sufficient for dinner unless you pre arrange dining. There was a rather large group there so no space available. In hindsight, we were happy to... More

We did this two days in a row! We start at the owners home where they have 3 adult cheetahs who were rescued as orphan cubs. We had a seat on the grass in the back of the house and the cats will sit or wander around you. Some of them will lick you! Take lots of photos of this... More

as good as it sounds, and even better. There are 4 tamed cheetahs (who grew up on the farm with the family) which you can approach, pet... and even get licked! The other cheetahs live in semi-wild state in the park. My only regret: we could have received a little but more information about the place and their work with... More

I'd seen this place on the internet and I'd seen photos of small dogs playing with cheetahs. I've been to several cheetahs places, but couldn't believe that they could play with small dogs until I saw it with my own eyes! The cheetahs experience is amazing, you see their tame cheetahs first (the ones who play with the dogs), you... More

You get very close to the tame cheetahs and it is truely a great experience.The hosts are nice and you can ask questions about the cheetahs but otherwise you do not get any information on the tour. Feeding the ’wild’ cheetahs felt a bit like being in a zoo Be aware that this is not a cheetah rescue project. The... More

I LOVED this farm! The hosts, Tollie and Roeleen, were wonderful and caring. The chalets are simple and very comfortable. The cheetahs both tame and wild were such a treat to see and interact with. I stayed here for 3 nights and felt very at home. The pet cheetahs were so wonderful. There was even an older one who was... More

We stayed here, unfortunately only for one night. The experience was magical. To be able to stroke tame cheetahs in a garden was a wonderful hour. Then to be taken to feed wild cheetahs in their enclosure, also a stunning experience. Wish we had stayed longer. Our hosts were very kind and accommodating too. Excellent

We stayed as part of our 2 week overland trip around Namibia. Very welcoming and the experience of meeting Tollie and his "tame" cheetah then going on to feed the wilder animals is an experience never to be forgotten. There was no rushing or pushing, with Tollie allowing as long as we needed for photos and interaction with the Cheetah.... More

We stayed one night here - do not forget to re-confirm your booking! I did, and was greeted by a stern-looking Roeleen saying You did not re-confirm so I cancelled your booking. My face must have been a picture!! She then grinned wickedly and said Here is my son, follow his truck down to your accommodation and we'll pick you... More

It is not every day you get a private petting time with tame cheetahs and can watch the wild ones from short distance. We did not have enough cash and the supermarkets/ATMs in Kamanjab were closed and we asked if we could come the next day and pay for the visit. We didn't even need to drive to the farm... More
