Guided tour at the Cheetah Centre including Cheetah and Wild Dog breeding and other programmes. Although the Cheetah breeding programme was the main initiative that led to the foundation of the centre in 1971, there are many other animals whose continued existence and genetic diversity is supported by various breeding programmes at the centre. Here one can see Cheetahs of course and African Wild Dogs in the larger rewilding projects, but also Brown Hyena, Caracal, Serval, African Wild cat Vultures and many other large bird species, various antelope, wildebeest, meerkats ostriches and other animals added time to time. The beautiful natural surroundings beneath the Magaliesberg Mountains enhance the entire experience.
If you have to leave your hotel early for the morning programme (this one includes the "Cheetah Run") ask your hotel for a packed breakfast and you can enjoy it on a picnic there while you wait for the programme to start. You might like to consider while, in the region, visiting other attractions. This area to the northwest of Johannesburg and Pretoria is scenic and has many natural attractions and activities. There are other attractions you can add to your day.

What an excellent experience that exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Francois, was professional, cognitive of time, and kept us on track. Johannesburg freeways can get congested, but Francois knew all the backroads to expedite our travel time. We included the Elephant Sanctuary which I recommend. Having the opportunity to interact with the Elephants was a special experience. Recommend this tour.

Wonderful tour, informative commentary about animal behaviour, worthwhile organization to support. This organization has reintroduced over 800 cheetahs back into the wild. They also work with other endangered animals.

Brilliant views of all the animal ambassadors and learnt a lot especially with the painted dogs Impressed by her work and the number of cheetahs released into the wild All a bit spoilt though by me being on my own as I’d have been happier with a small group. Also I feel you could do better with the driver/ he talks nonstop and his language was sometimes offensive - talking about “blacks” and “ Jew boys” and the ANC being communists. Maybe better to stick to animals ?

It was exciting to be so close to the animals and to be able to take great pictures. Nichole and Wilson are a great guide team. It is interesting to watch Wilson command respect as he feeds the animals. Nichole is gifted in her ability to explain facts about the animals and yet make them sound like family. This is very much worth the visit.

It is a very long drive from JNB - approx 2 hours each way- but definitely worth your time. Great organization to support their good work
