The De Wildt Cheetah and Wildlife Centre is situated on the foot of the Magaliesberg Mountains. It is a captive breeding facility for South African cheetahs and several other rare and endangered species, like wild dog, brown hyena, Suni, Duiker, Cape Vulture and Riverine rabbits. The Ann Van Dyk Cheetah Centre in South Africa was established in 1971, as a cheetah conservation project. The centre has continued to perform an important role in the preservation and protection of cheetahs and has bred over eight hundred cheetah cubs . Today the Centre can be proud of the work being done to ensure the survival of acinonyx jubatus – the cheetah, successfully breeding these magnificent animals, including the famous King Cheetah in captivity.
