De Wildt Cheetah & Wildlife Centre Tour

The De Wildt Cheetah & Wildlife Centre was established in South Africa in 1971, in the past known as the De Wildt Cheetah Centre in Brits it 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 cheetah species. Their mission was to ensure the survival of the Cheetah, African Wild Dog and other wild animals in southern Africa, that was on the brink of extinction.

“To ensure the long term survival of the wild cheetah and its ecosystems through the implementation of a National Management Plan by means of integrated conservation programs, research and education.” This is the mission statement made by the management of De Wildt, a truly heartwarming experience and as they put it “a race against extinction”.Tourist looking for things to do in Johannesburg can reserve safari trips to experience the Centre's wild animals.

At the centre, we enjoy a three hour guided wildlife tour during which you will see and learn about the cheetah, African wild dog, caracal, African wild cat, vultures and various antelope species. These tours led by a knowledgeable guide who will present many cheetah and wildlife facts. Tours are given daily, at 08h30 and 13h30 except on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and Sunday mornings where the morning tour starts at 08h00 instead of 08h30 to include a cheetah run.

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.
