A good operation and a chance to see endangered species such as cheetahs, wild dogs, servals as well as meercats. Cheetah runs are offered 4 times a week at 8 am that unfortunately are not advertised on the website.

Except for the cheetah run (which is the highlight of the visit), the information about the different animals present at the centre and the visual encounter with the animals at close range makes it an adventure to remember.
