De Wildt Cheetah and Wildlife Centre is renowned for its breeding success of rare and endangered species, particularly bringing back the cheetah from the brink of extinction.

See most of these animals up close and learn interesting facts about their nature, habitat and way of life.

Offering a unique opportunity to learn some interesting facts about these fascinating creatures, this is one special wildlife tour you wouldn’t want to miss!

You can see most of these animals up close and learn interesting facts about their nature, habitat and way of life when taking a tour in an open vehicle, conducted by a knowledgeable guide.

You can also get a wonderful opportunity to observe, and where possible, assist with the immobilisation of cheetah/wild dog, or other species at the centre that require immobilisation for management reasons or disease control/treatment. Should you prefer, you are welcome to just watch and get those close-up photos of a lifetime!

At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel.
