Apollo & Zeus
Our teenagers. Apollo is one curios cat. When looking in his eyes, it’s as if he can see right through your soul.
Zeus loves his brother but loves eating and chewing more. He is a calm spirit and leaves the exploring to Apollo who reports back around the hour.

Unusual friendship. Jag & Bullet are best friends. They grew up together. Either Bullet thinks he is a Jaguar or Jag thinks his a dog. Either way. Trying to separate them causes heartbreak for them. Come watch this phenomenal friendship in action.

Lucky & Leila
Leila loves striking a pose for the camera. She is a diva. Leila is our wedding ring bearer. She is responsible for many breath taking moments at Akwaaba, and she knows it very well.
Lucky watches Leila from a-far and it seems as if he shakes his head and whispers “crazy woman” But he feels lucky every time she returns to him
Madiba & Liana
Madiba is the first Strawberry Leopard to be born in Captivity….
Liana is a normal coloured leopard but do not stay in Madiba’s famous shadow. She love to show off. Please remember to give her some credit when visiting them.
Madiba was born with a genetic condition called erythrism, and this is believed to cause an excess of red
pigments or a deficit of dark ones.
"So it's a ginger?" Yeah, it prefers the term Strawberry.
Phantom,Thandi & Thandeka
