  • Awesome work they doing. Cheetah sanctuary is great for up closer look outside of the surrounding reserves
  • Very Nice Accomodation. But... They charge a Fee in case you want to get in after 7 pm. Its 500 ZAR everytime. I call it penalty. You have to call when you want to enter after 5 pm and again after 7 pm. i was switched back in my teenagehood when i had to call my Parents to explain where i am. We did not had the feeling that we are free. They do not really have an explanation for that. They compare themselves with Krüger National Park which is absolutly not comparable. they want to make you to stay at their property to use the Restaurant and etc. Its money making and that is really sad in this Area. The Stay by itselfe was beautifull. The food is good.
