Welcome to the Cheetah Outreach Programme, a pioneering initiative dedicated to the conservation and protection of one of Africa’s most iconic big cats – the cheetah. Situated in the heart of South Africa’s Western Cape, this unique program offers visitors the opportunity to learn about these magnificent predators and actively participate in efforts to ensure their survival in the wild. From educational encounters with ambassador cheetahs to hands-on conservation activities, the Cheetah Outreach Programme provides a meaningful and immersive experience that fosters awareness, appreciation, and stewardship of these endangered animals.

Facts about the cheetah outreach programme

  1. Conservation Education: At the core of the Cheetah Outreach Programme is a commitment to conservation education. Through guided tours, interactive presentations, and educational materials, visitors learn about the biology, behavior, and conservation status of cheetahs, as well as the challenges they face in the wild. By raising awareness and promoting empathy for these magnificent cats, the program empowers visitors to become ambassadors for cheetah conservation.

  2. Ambassador Cheetahs: The Cheetah Outreach Programme is home to a select group of ambassador cheetahs – individuals that have been raised in captivity and are unable to be released into the wild. These cheetahs play a vital role in the program, serving as living representatives of their species and helping to educate the public about the plight of cheetahs in the wild.

  3. Encounter Experiences: Visitors to the Cheetah Outreach Programme have the opportunity to get up close and personal with ambassador cheetahs through specially curated encounter experiences. Under the supervision of trained guides, participants can interact with these majestic cats, learning about their behavior and biology while observing them in a safe and controlled environment.

  4. Conservation Initiatives: In addition to its educational efforts, the Cheetah Outreach Programme is actively involved in on-the-ground conservation initiatives aimed at protecting wild cheetah populations. Through partnerships with local communities, conservation organizations, and government agencies, the program works to address threats such as habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict, and poaching, while promoting coexistence between cheetahs and humans.

  5. Research and Monitoring: The Cheetah Outreach Programme conducts research and monitoring activities to better understand the ecology and behavior of cheetahs in their natural habitat. By tracking individual cheetahs, studying their movements and interactions, and collecting data on their prey preferences and hunting strategies, researchers gain valuable insights that inform conservation strategies and management practices.
