About us

Western Cape Cheetah Conservation is working for and has its fundamental objective and focus to rehabilitate and release cheetahs in the western cape as well as in rest of South Africa. 
WCCC has so far rescued over 25 individuals and released 7 back into protected natural areas.

Activities at Cape Cheetah

Such activities could includes:
Wild cheetah run
Rehabilitation cheetah run
Educational Tour
Release sight within reserve

we are aiming for creating bigger release sights and safe havens for the cheetahs.

Cape cheetah provides homes to all cheetahs, wild, semi-wild, tamed in training and so-called “retired cheetahs”. A retired cheetah doesn’t need to be old, it just means that they will live with us in our care – in the very best way possible, for the rest of their life. This is when the individual is not suited for the rehabilitation process for either physical or physiological reasons.
Other individuals who were taken in was Iziba, a young 3-month-old cheetah who had been kept as a pet in Port Elizabeth.
She was taken care of and given the right diet and later integrated with the other rescues to meet other animals of her own species.
All our cheetahs get to learn how to hunt, run and goes out every day to explore the surroundings accompanied by a professional handler. They are given the very best care, love, and attention.
We have been the safe home of 25 incredible cheetahs,
Had births of 12 cubs and released 7 individuals back into natural protected areas.
