We found the staff there very passionate about their work and keen to guide you around the project which is aimed at conservation of cheetahs and other animals. They guide we had was very informative and we learnt a great deal about their animals many of which we had not heard of before such as the Servals and Caracals. For some visitors, there is also an option to enter the cheetah enclosure and get up close to a cheetah.

We can also recommend their gift shop, the proceeds from which help to support the project.

What a great job this place is doing, very informative predator tour with passionate guides....but then to take Zintle for a walk, what an experience!! She is a beautiful animal, not many people can say they have stoked a Cheetah, listened to her purr and then been licked. Just hope they continue to succeed with their program to stabilise the Cheetah population. Thoroughly recommended, you can get souvenirs and have a bite and drink as well.

Admission charge very reasonable. Tour guide was very informative, both in terms of highlighting an animal’s history but also explaining why they do and don’t do things. Although the cheetahs were lovely, the highlight for me was the amazing colours on the leopards. Final part of the tour is the opportunity to have your photo with a hand reared cheetah, and if the cheetah is in the mood, to give them a stroke. Today was too hot for anyone stroking the cheetah and that’s fair enough. An animals wishes must always be paramount.

It was very informative and we had an excellent guide. We were fortunate to have been able to pat cheetahs. We learnt a lot about each animal and found the whole tour very informative. Especially about hyenas and how they give birth. But you have to go there to find out. Well worth the visit.

Came across the Cheetah Project on the way to Graffe Reinet. We didnt go around the project but intend to go back. We did enjoy hunting for gifts in the shop which is an alladins cave of a huge variety of artefacts. We found the 2 ladies in charge of the shop helpful & like all the people we have met here very friendly. we will be back to have a proper explore soon

Stopped at this roadside place for refreshments/loo break a couple of times on the way to and from the Karoo. Didn’t see any of the cheetahs as we were in a hurry.

The shop stores a wide range of food and other gifts/souvenirs, some rather pricey. The cafe food was nice enough with attentive service.

There’s a problem however with the toilets - one had a missing seat and the liquid handwash provided (if that’s what it is?) has been so watered down that it’s completely ineffective thus raising important hygiene issues.

We decided to stop here on our way home & we were so glad we did! They do great work and the animals are well looked after and content. We asked many questions and were happy with the answers and information given. Great time at a special place!
