Up for a 7am start. Cut, powder and feed the cheetahs and prep meat for the other cats for the afternoon. Done…

Bit of a break till 9am..where we go an clean the enclosures which is fairly easy when these cats have certain spots they like to use.

Everyone is looking a bit sleepy so we head to the meerkats who are always full of life.

Mum can be a bit cranky though.

Have lots of spare time so we jump in with one of the Servals Upendo.

She’s pretty friendly and comes for a pat before handing out in her favourite bush.

After checking a few times we go and introduce ourselves to Gia a very good looking cheetah.

The boys Chuck and Norris are close by and posing for us as they want pretty photos taken of them too.

Everyone is looking a bit sleepy again so we go have a bit of a lie down while it’s really warm.

Gia is a bit more playful in the afternoon and has taken to John so we take the opportunity of friendly kitty and good light if we can get her to cooperate.

She keeps facing her back to the sun so John is trying to direct her so we get her in good light and her best side.

And then she looks a bit sad when we leave but she’s getting a bit playful in the cool afternoon.
