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.

  • 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
  • What they do here is for the greater good to increase the population of of the Cheetahs. As well as giving a home to some others. Me personally, am not fond of animals in captivity. Yet Gia reassured she is happy. The tour guide was friendly and found it very educational. Highly recommend going to say hello to the big cats and friendly staff.
  • What a tremendous experience. Fantastic guides who present the program very well.
  • Good place to stop and support the wildlife! The tour guides are also very friendly and helpful!
