Come and meet the world’s fastest land animals.Cheetah, Penguin & Wine Tour Did you know?
Evolution of cheetahs can be traced back 4 million years.

Cheetahs are an endangered species.Less than 1000 in South Africa and less than 7500 in the world. Cheetahs need to eat and often their meal of choice is livestock like sheep. Cheetah Outreach breeds and trains Anatolian shepherd dogs, who have for centuries guarded flocks of sheep from predators such as cheetahs. Once trained, these dogs are given to farmers, ensuring that cheetahs find other sources of food and farmers can retain their livelihood. Funding for the breeding and training of these dogs, comes from the people who visit the Cheetah Outreach. You can get up close to these magnificent cats and learn all sorts of interesting facts about them. At a small extra charge, you can even get photographs of yourself touching a cheetah or handling a fluffy cub.

Tour guides at the facility are very passionate and knowledgeable. Happy to answer any questions that visitors may have about cheetahs.Cheetah Outreach not only provides employment opportunities for locals. But also excellent opportunities for South African and international volunteers. So come and meet these speedy predators and help contribute to the survival of the specie.
