About Joti

When Joti was four months old, he was rescued by Cape Cheetah. By the efforts of the cheetah conservation centre, Joti is now strong, happy and has a great personality.


The Western Cape Cheetah Conservation is a renowned rescue and rehabilitation centre for cheetahs in the Western Cape. In the year 2008, the founder of Capecheetah, Damien Vergnaud saved Velvet, Shady and Joti, when they were only 1 month when these cheetah cubs were abandoned in a bathroom. Today, each cheetah has his own heroic, but sometimes heartbreaking, story. The aim of the centre is to rescue more cheetahs from similar situations with the goal of rehabilitating them and releasing them into the wild. The Western Cape Cheetah Conservation then expanded and implemented a breeding programme which is aimed at countering the decline within the African cheetah population as well as increasing the genetic diversity within this species. Today Inverdoorn and Cape Cheetah can boast about the success of releasing two cheetahs back into the wild and then seeing numerous cheetah cubs being born on the reserve. Come and witness the fastest land animal reach his ultimate speed and get to know more about the cheetahs and why these runs are important to the well-being of these cheetahs.
