Overview

The Cheetah Centre in South Africa was established in 1971, initially as a cheetah breeding project and the Centre has during the past 40 years bred over 800 cheetah cubs. Various conservation projects have been initiated since its inception which also inlcudes a successful African wild dog breeding programme. Known in the past as the De Wildt Cheetah Centre the name has recently been changed to the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre as a tribute to the woman who has devoted her life to the survival of the cheetahs as well as other rare and endangered species

Our tour there was amazing!. Cheetahs, vultures, African wild dogs -- all endangered - were house there. Our tour guide was very interesting and we saw and learned about many different animals. Well worth the visit. About 30 minutes outside of Pretoria.

I watch every nature documentary there is, but I still learned so much from my morning spent here. To watch a cheetah run is an incredible experience. Not only to watch the speed but also to hear the sound of their feet hitting the dirt....More

A great learning experience to find out about cheetahs and wild dogs and just how endangered they are. Our guide, Leon, was very good. Showing us the wild dogs and cheetahs was great, but you also get to see the vultures, meerkats and other endangered...More

The general visiting area is wheel chair friendly. You may(!) find some difficulties when doing the drive around the park, which is worthwhile by the way.
