De Wildt Cheetah And Wildlife Centre, Hartbeespoort Reviews
Exceptional experience. The guides are very knowledgeable and treat all the animals with respect. Each guest had the opportunity to interact with a King Cheetah known for it extraordinary spots.
I took UK relatives visiting South Africa for the first time and following a successful visit to Kruger. We all enjoyed the cheetah centre as it complemented our Kruger visit well - we saw up close many of the animals we hadn’t seen there including cheetahs of course but also wild dogs (we all enjoyed them), meerkats, honey badge and vultures. Our guide Keisha was excellent and we learned so much from her. Well worth a visit.
All I can say is that is really worth it. Awesome experience, the one that stood out the most was the interaction with the wild dogs. There's a café so you can buy stuff before you go on the trip. Will definitely go again
Well looked after animals.. they have an obvious love and affection for the care and conservation of all the animals in the centre.. well worth a visit and be part of the upkeep..
Enjoyed the visit tremendously. The tour was very informative and guides were knowledgeable. The centre is doing amazing work in educating the public about endangered and vulnerable animals.
