Sunset - Cheetah Combo

Activity Description

The Cheetah Combo is a popular program which combines time spent with our cheetahs on their daily time out and a guided tour of our centre to see the indigenous cats of South Africa and other local wildlife at the centre.

Join our cheetahs either in the morning or afternoon as they head through Cape Floral Fynbos and wooded Tsitsikamma Indigenous Forest. This special time in their extended territory forms part of their daily enrichment program. Only a few guests each day are privileged to join the cheetahs for this time out.

Customer Reviews

Absolutely wonderful experience. We have been told a lot of facts from the history of Tenikwa, its organisation, ideas and perspective for the future. The animals seen there were extremely interesting and the special event - the walk with cheetah - amazing. Plus a lot of vital details on animal's life, their behaviour, problems with taking care of etc. released in a very professional and friendly way by our guide Mr Mthobisi. Thank you for moments to be remembered for years!! - Andrzej Maciejewski

Amazing experience being so close to these beautiful cats. Better than I had hoped for and very informative. Guides were excellent. - AL Thom

Our visit was both enjoyable and educational. The staff were very accommodating and knowledgeable and were enthusiastic in answering questions. A big thank you to both Sheldon and Ash. The cheetah walk was the highlight of our afternoon. i would have no hesitation in recommending this rehabilitation to centre. - Anne Salmon

Something we will never forget. For a family who are obsessed with animals especially cats, this was an experience of a lift time. We had an extremely informative and passionate guide who obviously loved what he did. We were taken into the enclosures with the cats which was surreal. The cheetahs are beautiful and to be within 10 feet of one, watching her so relaxed was unbelievable. We then went with a walk with the cheetah. She was lead out of her enclosure and allowed to go wherever she wanted, unrestrained. She decided where we went, when we stopped and when she wanted to go back. The other cats were beautiful as well. - David Joyce

I visited Tenikwa with my wife on 01/10/18 we opted for the tour with a cheetah walk included. It was a wonderful experience, something we both really enjoyed. We did the tour first which included a visit inside the wild cat and serval enclosures and then saw the cheetah before having a break and then going off for our walk. Truly memorable, to hear a cheetah purr and look you straight in the eye is something I will always remember. Very well organised by the staff and we were impressed by the conservation work they are doing. Well worth supporting. - Bryn Davies
