The De Wildt Cheetah and Wildlife Centre lies nestled in the foothills of the Magaliesberg, presenting a landscape of open African veld, many indigenous trees and a panoramic view of the north. De Wildt is renowned for its breeding success of rare and endangered species. The very rare King Cheetah was first bred here and similar success has been achieved in breeding Wild Dog, Brown Hyena, Blue Duiker, Suni Antelope and various species of vultures. The tour coincides with feeding time, so you’ll be able to observe these animals feeding in a natural, but controlled, habitat. Advanced booking is recommended. No children under 6 are permitted.
The Cheetah Run: The ambassador cheetahs at the Centre are exercised three times a week as part of an enrichment programme. This entails the cheetahs chasing a high speed lure and visitors are able to witness the cheetah moving at speed. This activity offers some excellent photographic opportunities.
