This is a private tour with just you and the guide in our vehicle. This gives you maximum safety and flexibility. The early morning tour can include the Cheetah Run which affords guests the opportunity to experience the thrill of watching a cheetah run at high speed. It usually takes place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. After an audio-visual presentation, guests are accompanied by a guide, on an open game viewer, visiting our open Cheetah & Wild dog enclosures. Vultures caracals, African wild cats, meerkats, brown hyena, honey badgers, impala, and ostrich can also be seen. You might like to consider while in the region visiting other attractions. To the north-west of Johannesburg and Pretoria, it is the most scenic and has the most natural attractions and activities such as the Cradle of Humankind, Lesedi Cultural Village, Chameleon African Craft Market, The Elephant Sanctuary, Monkey Sanctuary, and Cable Way to the top of the 3 billion-year-old Magaliesberg.

A must do if you love wildlife.

The drive was pleasant. The guide at the centre was brilliant, informative and charismatic.
Wonderful company, great tour

We arranged our tour online from the US and the emails were always professional and questions were answered. We arranged it all in advance and paid so we were ready to go once we arrived in Johannesburg. The Cheetah Centre was wonderful - I highly recommend if you love animals, as you see cheetah, wild dogs, hyena, meerkats, serval, caracal, and others. Great experience. Our guide Patrick worked with us for a few last minute changes to our itinerary and was gracious and kind and all around great. Definitely choose this company if you're doing a tour in Johannesburg, as we had a great experience.

Must see!! The cheetahs are so beautiful. Take the tour that has the cheetahs run, amazing to see their speed. Also the King Cheetahs are gorgeous.

More than just cheetahs

Would highly recommend this sanctuary to learn about cheetahs. Get there early in the morning to experience the cheetah run which was very different and interesting.
The sanctuary however has more to its facility then just cheetahs, there is a wide range of animals from serval and wild dogs to hyenas and vultures.
The staff were very informative about the animals and conservation efforts throughout the sanctuary and seemed genuinely concerned with the conservation and well being of all their animals.
