Overview

Cheetah Experience is a registered non-profit endangered species breeding centre in Bloemfontein, South Africa. ​ Our Mission is to raise awareness of the vulnerability of South African species and other endangered species through educational experiences, as well as ethically breeding cheetahs in captivity. We are home to a number of endangered and threatened species, including cheetahs, leopards, male lions, servals, caracals, African wildcats, wolves, meerkats and a Siberian tiger. Our project takes in rescued animals from the local area, so we also have various animals from time to time, including a goat and antelope. ​ We offer visitors a once in a lifetime opportunity to come on an educational tour and learn about our animals, see them up close, take some amazing photos, and learn how you can join us in the fight to protect these precious species. We offer a Volunteer and Internship Program, which has seen over 750 hard-working, dedicated people from 29 countries come and be a special part of the Cheetah Experience Global Volunteer Family, and contribute to conservation in South Africa.

Volunteering here is an unforgettable experience. After completing daily chores and tasks the volunteers get to spend quality time with the animals.

Either volunteering or just coming for a tour is more than worth it! This place is so nice, you can tell that the project is driven by love and only for the animals and not to make money out of it.
