We went to the Daniell Cheetah project on our tour from Addo. For 80 ZAR, it was gorgeous to be guided around for 1h and see many wild cats (lions, servals, caracals, leopards,...) and especially the cheetahs. We had the chance to touch the cheetah...More

What a nice place. Was an excellent opportunity to get up close and personal with our endangered species. Just make sure when you go leave the little ones at home, pack your sunscreen or a hat because it is unbelievably hot there!!

Very nice. Nice animals in a good environment. Not a zoo but a good breeding project. Many animals and a good restaurant.

I read several of the negative reviews before visiting, so arrived very skeptical. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained a number of other animals in enclosures were also on the property, either as rescues, or working with another big cat conservancy program. I was...More

We got there in the afternoon so it was very hot and there was no reason to do the tour because the cheetahs would be hiding and captive in cages. Not sure about the goal regarding conservation and preservation of cheetahs. The animals are not...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Hi, We are expecting family from USA at the end of March 2015. They will have children aged 12 and 9 with them. From comments read on this site, there are several bad reports about children not being very welcome. Can you please tell what is allowed and not allowed when it comes to these children so that we can either make the trip or not. Also what are the charges for adults and children. Is there a restaurant? Bill Kruger
