Community Help Enviro-Education Through Animals

CHEETA is the education division of The Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre. We believe that education is a vital part of the conservation process. Schools can visit The Ann van Dyk Cheetah centre for informative tours and fun activities

In 2003 the Centre launched its Outreach Education Programme, using the cheetah as a symbol of survival and sustainability to teach young people how to overcome challenges and to be catalysts in their communities for the preservation of natural resources and the improvement of their own lives. This project has touched the lives of over 100 000 learners since its start.

In 2010 CHEETA was registered as a Section 18A Non Profit Organisation and works extensively in underprivileged communities.

CHEETA offers the following programmes: cheetah challenge (Outreach), tours at the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre and school holiday programmes.


You can choose from the following options and make your experience at the centre customized according to your focus area:

  • Walking tour – 1 ½ hours where learners will see and learn about cheetahs, wild dogs, caracal, African wild cat and various vulture species
  • Day package which includes a walking tour, lunch (hot dogs & oros) as well as fun activities up at “Reach for the Wild”

Learners can visit our curio shop after the tour.
