Ann Van Dyk Cheetah Centre

The centre was established by Ann Van Dyk in an effort to breed what was once a threatened species. The centre has gained International recognition for bringing the Cheetah back from the brink of extinction- through its breeding programmes.

Since its inception some 800 Cheetahs have been raised and resettled in Game reserves, throughout South Africa and other Countries. Ann Van Dyk Cheetah Centre is now the breeding centre for: Cheetahs, Wild dogs, Vultures, Hyenas etc.

Today the Centre can be proud of work being done to ensure the survival of acinonyx Jabatus – the Cheetah, successfully breeding these magnificent animals, including famous King Cheetah in Captivity.
