Daniell Cheetah Project, Kirkwood

4.2
See wild cats roaming freely in protected areas, and hold a baby cheetah at Daniell Cheetah Project, a private cheetah sanctuary aiming to re-establish purebred lines. Established in 2001, the project saves vulnerable cheetahs from the wild, breeds them, and displays them to the public. Take an educational tour led by an experienced trainer and walk with cheetahs, learning about these magnificent animals as well as about African wild cats, servals, caracals, meerkats, and black-footed cats. The reserve also has lions and leopards. You can order coffee, tea, and snacks on site, and you can also browse through a collection of African crafts in the gift shop.

  • The purpose of the project seems to be future-oriented to increase the population of cheetahs. Those who have to live in the enclosures do not, in my opinion, live a good life. The enclosures are far too small for wildcats. The same goes for the Lions. It didn't feel right.

  • Super project. All the big cats can be seen. From cheetahs, leopards, lions to Serval. It was very impressive.

  • Great place to visit, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made our tour enjoyable. We even had the opportunity to have a photo taken with a cheetah, unfortunately the cheetah was not in the best mood so we could not get too close for the photo but enjoyed our tour all the same.
  • Loved every minute of it. What a great cause! What a wonderful experience! Will be returning regularly
