Cheetah Outreach provides memorable cheetah and predator encounters in Cape Town

Cheetah Outreach

We all know that the cheetah is the fastest land animal, but how many of us know that it is also Africa’s most endangered big cat? Cheetah Outreach, which is based in Cape Town, is dedicated to help conserve these amazing animals.

If your family loves fresh air and being in the outdoors, Cheetah Outreach is actually a great place for educative and interactive experiences. Needless to say, their ambassador cheetahs can be safely interacted with.

Your family’s fun day out will actually help the various projects they have to save the cheetah for future generations!

The outreach is also home to other small predators and dogs.

You will also find their staff professional, friendly and very knowledgeable about their subjects.

Fun for the whole family at Cheetah Outreach

Cheetah Outreach has several fun and informative activities for groups, families and schools to enjoy.

Have your picture taken with a cheetah (socially distanced of course) and go for a walk with a Cheetah, Caracal, or Meerkats accompanied by one of their animal keepers. Read more HERE.

Their Cheetah Encounters allow you the opportunity to be in close proximity to one of their cheetahs and you may have photos taken of you with the cat.

Requiring advance booking, the Walk with a Cheetah offers an opportunity to accompany a cheetah and keepers on a walk around their facility. During the walk there will be an opportunity to take pictures and have your photo taken with the cat.

Other popular activities include a Walk with Grace the Caracal; a Walk with the Meerkats; a Bat-eared Fox Encounter; a Caracal Encounter; an Enrichment Tour; a Feeding Tour; a Private Cheetah Encounter as well as a General Tour of the property.

Reviews from previous guests

“Absolutely amazing, to get so close and personal with these predators, you realise that there is a certain vulnerability to them. The sharp claws and teeth are merely a means of protection and that they are such sweet souls. I am not one who agrees with humans intervening with nature, but this sanctuary is a safe haven, a sanctuary that has offered these beings a chance at living out there lives in their natural environment, something that has unfortunately been taken from them, mainly because of people wanting exotic pets and then getting bored. They look happy and so well looked after. To everyone who works here that puts in the time and effort, you should all be proud,” wrote Carlos on their TripAdvisor page.

Lucindadavids added; “Owen, was a great guide going into detail about the outreach and even the other animals attached to the place i would have loved to touch one of the cheetahs, but experience was amazing…”

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
