The Dell Cheetah Centre is committed to conservation through education, breeding and reintroduction.
We are a small non-profit organisation situated on the Farm Vaal Rock, approximately 10 km outside the town of Parys in the Free State province of South Africa. The Dell Cheetah Centre was founded in 2009 by Estelle and Pieter Kemp as part of our ongoing commitment to cheetah conversation. We have been working with cheetahs since 2001 as part of the Savannah Cheetah Foundation.
Cheetah Centre Visits
By reservation only
The Dell Cheetah Centre offers you the opportunity to view our cheetahs and others residents and learn more about these incredible species. Each visit consists of a talk by one of our informative and passionate staff members, who will explain more about the cheetah and what is being done to try and save them from extinction.
Due to our firm beliefs in conservation, no interaction is allowed with any of the animals. (No exceptions)
Cheetah Conservation Volunteering
Are you interested in volunteering at the Dell Cheetah Centre and helping us save the cheetah?
Our volunteer program is designed to introduce you to the fascinating wildlife which Africa has to offer as well as the incredible cheetah, and to work closely in all aspects of reserve management. Once a month we take our volunteers on a trip to Kruger National Park, which is home to the “Big 5”, where you can see the best of Africa’s wildlife in its natural habitat.
When you think about volunteering, you never really know what to expect and this short introduction will provide you with all the information you need.
The volunteer program at the Dell Cheetah Centre has been running since July 2008 and is a unique experience which allows you to get up close and personal with our cheetahs, whilst learning about the African wildlife and the importance of conservation in the 21st century. The maximum number of volunteers is limited to 8 so that all of them can get plenty of interaction with the cheetahs and the other animals.
You will find the program interesting, challenging, fun and rewarding, and the more you put into the experience the more you will gain from it. Your role as a volunteer is vital in allowing us to continue with our breeding and reintroduction work, and the vast majority of the volunteering fee is put straight back into the project. The rest of the it is used to cover your board and lodging costs.
You will be working with the cheetahs on a day-to-day basis; feeding them, cleaning their enclosures, monitoring them and exercising them. If there are cubs during your stay you will spend a great deal of time working with them too, once they are over the age of three months.
Volunteering – a minimum of 2 weeks and a maximum of 4 weeks. Prices on request. Age limit of 18 – 55 years.
