  • It's quite a way down the track but worth the drive. Very enthusiastic and knowledgable staff. Try to arrive in time for feeding.  more »

  • I had the pleasure of staying here for a few weeks and helping out with things around the farm and with taking care of the cheetahs. The people who work here are amazing and really care about the cheetahs. They put a lot of focus on helping out the local communities with their guard dog and education programs, which I think is where they really excel. Some of their other programs (scat dogs, genetic lab) seem to lack direction or an end goal, but the motivation is good. As a visitor you can get up close to the cheetahs and see a daily cheetah feeding, which is a ton of fun and definitely something everyone should experience. Overall it's a good place to visit or volunteer at.
  • The CCF offers an in depth learning experience about an incredible creature. It was amazing to learn about cheetahs and hear about the research currently being done there. To top all that off we got to watch the cheetahs run- what an incredible sight.
  • The behind the scenes tour was amazing. We were the only ones on the tour, the volunteers and staff were personable and friendly. Seeing cheetahs up close and watching them run was a sight to behold. We also learned a lot about the various research being done and conservation efforts.
  • Quite educative, very well informed and articulate guides. A must for cat lovers. It is a very natural environment far from the madness of the city.
  • Wonderful place. Loved the lessons on dogs and as well as the cheetah.
