During the year of 2016 I volunteered at Cheetah Experience on weekends and just absolutely fell in love with this amazing place, people and animals. Fast forward to this year I am volunteering fulltime at Cheetah Experience. That is the reason I’m spending my time here during my gap year. The experience and special moments you gain from this place is something you cannot describe in words.
To name but one one of these special moments, is when I visit the two leopards girls, Aurora and Nova, and a caracal boy named Ollie. I make sure to visit them everyday before the day is over.
When I go in with them , Aurora will always come and sit on my lap and cuddle . Nova usually come up and give about two kisses and then just lay down by your feet and will come up to cuddle for 2 seconds . Ollie is a caracal but he doesn’t know he is not a leopard. He loves to say hello while his tail is swirling in the air, if the 2 girls is not around to pounce on him to play.
All of them were about 10 months old when I first met them and now they are already 2 years old and having the chance of seeing them grow up is amazing.
Cheetah Experience is truly a place that goes by their saying : ” A project driven by love “.
