    Africat's Campsite

    by MelanieBee Written Jul 4, 2009

    This campsite is in the Africat property, but you are safe from any roaming wild cats as they are kept safe behind an electric fence in the wild cat compounds. There is also a lodge if you don't want to camp.

    The campsites are quite secluded and have a some basic amenities. There is also a swimming pool. The most striking feature though, is the al fresco toilet!

    There are a few other tips on these pages which describe the conservation and protection of the wild cats. I've also pasted the website link below for more information about the work that the foundation does.

    Feeding Time!

    by kentishgirl Updated Feb 24, 2007


    When the meat was thrown out of the jeep, we saw how fast these animals were!
    They are so lean and muscular, and stride beautifully across the fields.

    When they run, they run! Sand whirled in the air from their feet and they were off, some would then fight over a piece of meat and others would share, some would just wander around looking to see where the next bit was coming from!

    How Close?!!

    by kentishgirl Updated Feb 24, 2007


    Once we had been out there a while, the Cheetah's got used to us, either that or they could smell the meats that we had onboard to feed to them!

    These Cheetah's are protected by the sanctuary, as there is no game for them to naturally hunt, everyday the jeep comes through and throws huge pieces of raw meat out at them, it's then up to them to fight over it and chase it, so, yes they are fed, but no they are not hand fed.
