Owner description: 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

Needed to have lunch here. What a disgrace. Could serve a better meal at home with my eyes closed.

I've still enjoyed going again despite it being the 4th time that I've been. Very relaxed and interesting. Also have two awesome brown hyenas.

This was the first thing we did in SA this trip. It's an amazing entertaining but learning experience. Our guide Wessie was absolutely passionate about 'her' animals and was endlessly patient with questions. As this is a growing conservation centre rehabilitating their rescued animals back into the wild it is a very special place to support and give financial support to. It would be wonderful if every farm in SA could boast wild dogs and cheetahs on the property. Wessie made this experience really special. Many thanks to her and the Centre.

Incredibly informative and where else can you stroke a cheetah?! A must see for any animal lover! I am 18 and went with my 7 year old sister and we both had a blast! You must eat before or bring your own snacks though, as the food selection is incredibly limited...

Coming from Africa (live in Uganda), we may be a bit spoilt, but found the tour disappointing. The guide's knowledge was good, but did not find the staff very friendly and thought the space for all the animals a bit cramped / too small. Not great tour for a child - they did not even answer her question that she asked?!
