We found the proximity to all the big cats amazing plus access to more than just the cheetah. Seeing the leopard eat so close above us was unforgetable. The cheetah walk itself was exhilirating. Having a small group meant it was a more personal experience as we took it in turns to follow the cheetah. We were absolutely delighted with the whole experience.

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.
