We loved the cheetah walk that extended our stay at the Daniell Cheetah Project. Having time to really be with the cats was an unforgettable experience. The caretaker/tour guides were clearly knowledgeable and cared about the animals. The facilities could probably be improved for the animals' enjoyment, but I'm hopeful that the great experiences had by visitors will encourage their involvement in continued conservation efforts.

This is a popular place for us to stop en route to other attractions in the area. We love to grab a toasted sandwich and brouse through their shop which always has a full range of good quality gift items. If we have time we spend an hour in the reserve area to see what animals are being looked after. Cheetah's are always there to see and also to get close to. At our last visit, a cheetah was lyingon her back and a yong lady visitor was lying on her back beside it, making for a great bit of video as she imitated the cheetah's poses.

We visited Daniel Cheetah Breeding Farm recently and was very impressed with their effort to save and breed Cheetah, albeit it's very difficult. The cheetah and few other cats was kept in good condition and we can see that they look happy there. The guide was interesting too as we learned lots of stuff about this nearly extinct cat. The farm has their souvenir shop as well with a very affordable price. I hope the farm will keep on receiving visitors as we need more places like this to keep the nature at peace.

Note to visitor: if you coming to visit in the afternoon, please wear hats as it can be really hot there.

thanks

We enjoyed having the opportunity to touch the cheetahs and learnt a lot about South African predators.

We visited the farm on 10 th of February and it was perfect experience. It was only me and my wife in the group ,so we have almost private group. Our guide was very pleasant, answer all us question and at the end, we can play with 2 years old cheetah and it was something we will not forget!

So if you are travelling from Bloemfontein to Porth Elizabeth, stop there for hour:)
Price was very good - I guess something about 60 rand per person.
