**COVID UPDATE**

We are delighted to be welcoming guests again and ask you to be aware of a few changes due to Covid.

Please be aware that masks are required at all times.

You are welcome to join us on our hour long Predator Tour but guests are not allowed to interact with the cats and other animals in their enclosures during this tour.

We are unable to offer Cheetah Walks during this time.

Thank you for your understanding.

At Daniell Cheetah Project we want to provide a stress-free home for our animals. We are working hard towards the conservation of our wildlife, but as a privately owned conservation project we do not get any subsidies or grants from the government. Thus, we have opened our doors to the public in order to get funding to reach our goals. To achieve the best possible environment for our animals we do not allow day visitors to walk through the project unaccompanied, therefore we offer two types of guided tours: The Predator Tour and The Cheetah Walk.

Cheetah Walks

Predator Tour

This is a 1 hour guided educational tour through our project. On the tour guests will be able to see and learn more about our animals, their conservation status and our efforts

The rates for the Predator Tour are:

  • children 0-4years free of charge
  • children 5-13 years R60/p
  • 14+ years and older R90/p

The Predator Tour does not need to be pre-booked by guests; booking for large groups is advisable. To contact us for a large booking, please click here. We are open daily (except on the 25th and 26th of December and the 1st of January) from 09:00-16:00 for this tour.

Cheetah Walk

Please note: Unfortunately we do not currently allow cheetah walks due to covid and they are suspended till further notice. 

This is a 1 hour walk with harness-trained cheetahs out in the African bush along with at least 2 trained guides. The walk can be done by small groups (min of 2 and max of 6 people) and needs to be booked at least 2 days in advance. At DCP we respect our animals, thus on walks we allow the cat to choose the direction and the pace. The walk offers an exciting outing and enrichment for the cheetah, where our guests might experience the cheetah’s instinct and behavior in the bush.

To participate in the walk ALL guests need to be:

  • 14+ years old – under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. Please bring your Drivers’ License or ID if you are a South African national, or your passport if you are not. Proof of age is required for our insurance.
  • taller than 1.5m
  • have a reasonable level of fitness.

Please note that all bookings for a cheetah walk must be or a minimum of two people. It is R300/p.

Seeing as Cheetahs are prone to overheat when they are too active during warmer times, we have different Walk schedules for our warm and cold seasons:

Summer Walks

During summer months (September-May) there are morning walks from 08:00-09:00 and afternoon walks from 16:30-17:30.

Visitors taking part in the morning walk are asked to check in no later than 07:45. Failure to check in before this time will lead to the cancelation of the walk.

Visitors taking part in the afternoon walk are asked to check in at 15:45 as there might be an opportunity to start the walk earlier in the afternoon.

Winter Walks

During winter months (June-August) walks will take place at 16:30-17:30.

Visitors taking part in the afternoon walk are asked to check in at 15:45 as there might be an opportunity to start the walk earlier in the afternoon.

*Please note the walk may be cancelled due to extreme heat conditions posing a threat to the cheetahs’ health.
