De Wildt Cheetah And Wildlife Centre Reviews & Ratings
Fantastic place with amazing guides. Meet the cheetah ambassador and others. Take the guided tour of the various animals and the wild dogs. This place does incredible work in education and rescue. Not cheap but well worth it, especially knowing you are supporting a genuine organisation.
The Ann van Dyk Cheetah Center provides an opportunity to view and learn more about cheetahs, wild (painted) dogs, vultures and other species under threat at their rescue, rehabilitation, and breeding center. Located a short drive north from Pretoria, a typical visit may include watching keepers exercise the cheetahs on a morning run, feeding rounds, and a tour of all animals currently in their care. Very reasonably priced, visitors will find immaculate grounds, a staff eager to educate, and well kept restroom facilities. Donations are encouraged and, unlike many other facilities claiming to be conservators, this is the real deal - this facility exists to serve the current and future well being of cheetahs and wild dogs. A "must see" if visiting the Pretoria area.
I did enjoy it there and will go again.
Small and short tour but well worth it for the conservation and rehabilitation the animals!!! Wonderful experience.
We had an awesome experience. Super friendly and helpful staff. Our tour guide Jason made my day with all the information and stories he shared about each animal. This establishment does great rehabilitation work and is a must see. The cheetah run was quite remarkable as well.
