Our guides have noticed something on our tours – our guest take a lot of selfies. We’re curious to see how they turn out, so we’ve put together a plan where you can showcase your selfies on our social media! We’re on a hunt to find the best selfie taken at our Centre, which showcases the HESCperience that we have to offer visitors.

Without further ado, we introduce our HESCperience selfie competition! Each month, our team will pick our favourite selfie. The selfie of the month winner will receive a HESC cap. At the end of 12 months, we will allow YOU to choose our Selfie of the Year winner.

The prize – the opportunity to name one of our cheetahs! The HESCsperience selfie of the year winner will also receive a HESC jacket.


So what are you waiting for?

Start submitting your HESCperience selfie from 1 September 2014. Monthly winners will be announced at the end of each month, and the grand winner will be announced after September 2015!
