My wife and I visited the Africat foundation in Namibia due to their rehabilitation work with cheetahs and leopards. During the visit, we got to do a cheetah game drive.
At the time, they had five cheetahs in rehabilitation and we got to see all of them up close. It was such a cool experience to get so personal with these incredible animals. We got to look straight into their eyes and see all the spots on their fur. Sometimes they were so close that we could almost touch them.
Even though we had seen this animals in the wild, it was still worthwhile.
