    I'm getting ready to book a day safari for mid April (somewhere between the 18th and the 21st) and after reading the reviews I have a few quests: Cheetah interactions- Above a guest stated cheetah interactions were for luxury level guests. On you website it seemed to be available for everyone. I am a cheetah enthusiast (My favorite land animal), I'm coming here almost exclusively for this. I was wondering what it entails and how long are the interactions? If not included in the safari how much is it extra? I saw the section on your page for donations to feed them is this available to day trippers as well? Weather- I know our seasons are in reverse but April is like the beginning of your rainy season correct? Just wondering what I should expect because I've never been to Africa before. I've tried doing research but it seems to fluctuate maybe you can offer some insight. Drivers- I see a lot of guest saying that you arrange pick ups from and return trips to Cape Town. I didn't see this on the site and just wanted some clarification on this. I'll be staying in the Milnerton/Lagoon Beach area in Cape Town. Is that within your range?
