The Cat Tour
Here you’ll get up-close and personal (but not too personal as physical interaction is not allowed) with South Africa’s endangered wild cat species. The heart of Emdoneni is its Zululand Cat Conservation project. Owners Louis and Cecillie Nel established the project to facilitate environmental education and conservation of cheetah and other smaller wild cats. They, and their dedicated team have cared for and released four cheetahs, four African wild cats, 13 caracals and 22 Servals back into the wild.
“Come and be mesmerised by the beauty of the Caracal (Lynx), enchanted by the playful Serval, astonished by the speed and agility of the Cheetah and delighted by the African Wildcat”, says Cecillie.
And of course, there’s nothing stopping you from extending your Day Trip into a longer stay-over experience, starting from R730 per person per night sharing including breakfast.
With its superb accommodation and impeccable service, Emdoneni is the ideal place to enjoy a family holiday or a relaxing weekend getaway. The accommodation – 50 rooms designed to give a ‘taste’ of Africa with just the right amount of luxury – offers three options, the standard and deluxe Chalets, the African-style Rondavels that come with all the creature comforts and the Honeymoon suite, the Windfall Cottage. Other activities include traditional Zulu dancing shows, hikes, safaris, whale watching (seasonal), bird watching and more.
