See endangered wildlife with the De Wildt Centre tours

Whether you are a local tourist or one from abroad, no holiday in Africa would be complete without a visit to a game park to marvel at the majestic wildlife that roams the fields. It is an unfortunate truth that some of these magnificent creatures declined in numbers, some of them even reaching the brink of extinction. One such animal is the cheetah. Luckily the fate of this beautiful creature turned when the De Wildt Cheetah and Wildlife Centre stepped in and started a very successful breeding project. Today this project has grown to include many other endangered species, making a real difference in their survival. The De Wildt Centre tours give you the opportunity to see these animals and many others in their natural environment.

The centre, which was established in 1971, is situated in the foothills of the Magaliesberg mountain range, about a 50 minute drive from Johannesburg. The De Wildt Centre tours last about three hours where a tour guide drives visitors all around the park in a large green safari park.

Initially the De Wildt Centre started as a haven for the endangered cheetah, embarking on a successful breeding programme to increase their numbers. This has since grown to include other endangered species, such as the Wild Dog, Brown Hyena, Suni Antelope, Duiker, Cape Vulture and Riverine Rabbit. As part of this programme a number of these animals are also released back into their natural habitat. The De Wildt Centre tours are an amazing experience, allowing you the opportunity to experience nature the way it was intended.
