only went for a few hours, did a tour, short educational video, then watched cats being fed ( you need to time this right in your trip) then short drive to see cheetahs in enclosures. Fascinating place, would reccommend.

Most of the cheetahs CCF has are non-releasable and their record of rehab and release seems quite low. However, they are doing the best they can with limited space (and possibly, resources).

Yes, we actually got to interact with the cats up at the house as they have been handled since they were Cubs, including touching/petting them. They also come over and sniff and lick you, it's an amazing experience.
