Visited to walk with cheetahs which was amazing. They purr like a domestic cat when petted and we were able to do that. The main lodge was beautiful with a lake our the back and a great view from the bar.

I've been there on september, 2014. It was a great trip for almost a month. Touring with the cheetahs was the best!! At this place u can meet the animals that we've always seen on TV only.
