Check out the coolest of Africa's cats

Just outside Hluhluwe is the only wild cat rehabilitation facility in Zululand, situated on Emdoneni Lodge and Game Farm, a private game reserve with sand forest vegetation.

Emdoneni Cat Rehabilitation Centre offers twice-daily educational tours, with informative talks by an experienced guide and feeding during the afternoon.

Orphaned or injured wild cheetah, serval, African wildcats and lynx are rehabilitated for release back into their natural habitat where possible.

Funding for the project comes from tour fees or an ‘adoption’ programme which allows visitors to contribute to the centre.

These funds go directly to veterinary care, feeding, camp and fence maintenance, as well as workers’ salaries. By implementing a system based on donations, it is hoped to improve each cat’s stay at the centre.

The aim of the project is to keep as few cats as possible in captivity. Once their numbers increase, suitable animals are released back into the wild.

- Touching a cheetah was the highlight of our trip.

Amazing experience - Wow! What an awesome experience. We got to interact with the cats (big and small) and our guide was amazing. She was friendly and so great with us. One can really see how much the cats are loved. We are definitely planning another visit, and possibly a stayover too. Definitely recommended for animal lovers! Niki and Les
