Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre

Ann van Dyk started the cheetah centre on her parent’s chicken farm in North West in 1971. When the National Zoological Gardens of South Africa ran out of space to continue their captive breeding programmes, she volunteered her services.

Ann took over the De Wildt Cheetah Sanctuary near Pretoria and relocated it to the foothills of the

Magaliesberg Mountains, where the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre is now a world-renowned research centre and well worth a tour.

The centre performs crucial conservation work in breeding African animals that are endangered or facing extinction, such as the cheetah, the African wild dog and the Cape vulture.
