Sunrise - Cheetah Combo

Plettenberg Bay

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

One of the highlights of our recent visit to South Africa was our visit to Tenwika, and to accompany the cheetah, ZIMBALI, as she took her early morning walk. As it was early, and no other visitors, we were privileged to be the only two visitors with her, along with the two knowledgable rangers. Worth pre-booking. An amazing experience. - FREDERICK VERNON

Informative and interesting. The encounter with the cheetah was amazing. You do incredibly important work there. Our experience was something we'll never forget. We would recommend a visit to others visiting South Africa. Regards Nick and Nina Eldridge - Nick Eldridge

The experience was awesome. Love the way the Center take cares of animals instead of exploiting for tourism. The walk with Zimbali was an experience of a lifetime. Keep up the great work! - Su Reen Liew

Myself and my family really enjoyed our Sunrise-Cheetah Combo tour. We found the guides to be very knowledgeable and friendly and this greatly enhanced our experience. We would highly recommend this tour. - BEN HEALY

What an amazing experience with professional guides. We arrived early morning to walk the cheetah, it was surreal. It wasn’t just a quick lap of an enclosure but watching the cheetah talk a lengthy walk and drink at the lake with plenty of opportunities for videos and photos of the beautiful creature. We were then shown around the rest of the reserve where passion and time is put in to rehabilitating rescued animals. A very worthy cause and excellent experience! - Mandy Taylor
