Follow your soul

There are times when you have the feeling you need to do something to, for lack of a better phrase, recharge your energies. For me, this proved to be the place to go and I would not want to miss the experience ever.

Interesting work

Very friendly staff and very interesting work. I was however reminded at all times of the precarious situation in which this type of endeavour is subject, from a political, financial and social point of view. Also, I belong to an age group which renders social interaction with the other volunteers (mostly young students) awkward at best.
My best memories are the time spent with Nova, Aurora and Ollie.

My experience at cheetah experience

2 years ago, I was a volunteer at Cheetah Experience. One of my friend ask me, if I wanted to go there with her. I didn’t really know, what it will be, and also what I will find.
And now, I can say that it was one of the best experice I ever had. I splept with a cheetah, I didn’t know it was possible. During 2 weeks, we had a chance to interact with many animals, and when the work it’s finish and time to go back home, we made a fire camp next to the house, and had really nice time with all volunteers and staff members.
2 weeks was really not enough, I wanted to stay more. I hope one day I could go back at Cheetah Experience, and live again a wonderful trip.
Thanks to all volunteers who had made my days funnier again and again, and thanks to all staff members who were really cool, and really patient.
Keep doing what you do, thanks again, and I hope to see you soon.

Volunteering at cheetah experience

I volunteered at cheetah experience last year for two weeks. It was amazing! I learned so much about the animals through all the hands on experience and the staff. The staff do a phenomenal job! Everybody was incredibly nice, informative, and professional, they treat you as if you were family. I recommend cheetah experience for anybody who loves animals. I will be returning again for 3 weeks very shortly.
