Who are we?
- Founded in 2016 Cheetah Experience Ashia is a 35 hectares working agricultural farm supporting environmental values and with a strong focus on conservation of endangered big and small cats, especially cheetahs. Cheetah Experience Ashia offers a tranquil home and sanctuary to its hand-raised ambassador cheetahs, including the retired or unique cheetahs who need extra love and attention as they could not survive in the wild. We offer small groups of visitors to the farm the opportunity to come and learn more about the cheetah, why it is endangered and the efforts conservationists are making to assist the future of this vulnerable animal. Guests have the opportunity to participate in cheetah experiences, watch cheetah runs, join cheetah walks, photo sessions, animal enrichment sessions and shadow our animal handlers. We also have volunteer programmes and offer working holidays.
Kerry Boughton @Cheetah Experience - Ashia: Over the last months our project has made a huge progress and, although, we have not yet reached the end of the journey we would like to give all our friends and supporters of the project the opportunity to visit us for an exciting “sneak preview”. Mid of January Phase IV of the project will start with the renovation of the Main Farm House and construction of further enclosures for servals, caracals and leopards. As Phase IV will only effect small areas of the sanctuary we will continue to except bookings for all Cheetah Experiences we have on offer. Please notice that during our soft opening phase we have to request pre-booking for all visits in order to ensure that there is always a staff member available to provide a memorable animal experience, to take you through the project, our next conservation steps and future plans.

Kerry Boughton @Cheetah Experience - Ashia: We are so happy to announce to safe arrival of our next 3 cheetahs at Ashia. Abby, Xena and Libby travelled well and have now settled into their new home. No one showed signs of stress - they were exploring their hills and houses and taking in the amazing Paarl sunset. They all had something to eat and Xena is now snuggled up in her house. We have had tears of excitement and glasses of bubbly to celebrate their safe and happy arrival.
