Awesome experience for school children to see how conservation in South Africa is done to help animals that have been injured due to human interference in nature. They make a large contribution to helping cheetahs and and other animals to rehabilitate so they can live live the best life that they possibly can according to the situation that they are in. Children are taught that they must think about what they do and use and how they can then contribute to helping nature thrive in their habitat so that the animals don't have to live in rehabilitation centers.
What an amazing experience seeing those beautiful cheetahs up close. The people were friendly and you can tell they love what they do. A must visit if you in the area
