As you already know, Cheetah Experience had the amazing opportunity of buying our own land, a beautiful property of 272 ha in Limpopo, where we can have bigger and more natural enclosures for our animals. Our team has been very busy with the building of the camps and getting everything ready for the animals to move. On the 29th of September, we were able to finally move all of the cheetahs to the new project. All of our other animals are currently still in Bloemfontein, awaiting the finishing of the camps.
There is still a lot that needs to be done and a lot of material that is needed. We haven't been able to open to the public due to South Africa still being in a strict lockdown, which means that we are still left with no income from tourists or volunteers. A lot of our costs turned out to be higher than expected and currently we still need funds to finish our meatroom, perimeter fence, accomodation for volunteers and lots of other things.
We are eternally grateful for your support and wouldn't have been able to get as far as we have without you. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and share our story with friends and family. We will need every bit of help that we can get in the next months, every dollar makes a massive difference to us. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank everyone who has donated so we can reach our goal together.
