Cheetah Conservation and Rehabilitation
Western Cape Cheetah Conservation is based at Inverdoorn Game Reserve. Their aim is to rescue and rehabilitate these wild Felines to release them back into the wild. The runs form part of the rehabilitation process, which guests at Inverdoorn can witness when they visit the centre. Guests are also able to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to encounter and interact with a tame cheetah at the safari lodge, learning about their conservation from the handlers. In an effort to decrease the declining population and increase genetic diversity among cheetahs, a breeding programme has been implemented. To date, Capecheetah has saved fourteen cheetahs, successfully released two into the main part of the reserve to roam free and witnessed the birth of two healthy litters. Volunteer programme and social engagement make the public a part of the process of saving the wild cats to which the centre has devoted its work.
