Allowing humans to interact directly with the wildlife of Africa enables them to connect in a very real way; a way that allows a unique insight into the intelligence behind the animals’ eyes. Kwa Cheetah is not primarily in interactive initiative, since their main goal is to rehabilitate and release the animals that pass through their care back into the wild. However, it is necessary to make these interactive sessions possible in order to raise the needed funds for the specialised food and expertise needed to rehabilitate the animals effectively.

Kwa Cheetah was established in 2011 in the scenic South African province of KwaZulu-Natal. It has, since then, become one of the most acclaimed and successful breeding projects of this wild cat in the province, and one of the best in the country. From the time that the cheetahs arrive or are born, they are taught to hunt, interact with one another and survive in the wild so that they can be put back into their natural habitat and live the life for which they were created. During this time, they are also kept fit and healthy, and are stimulated mentally so that they are responsive to dangers and potential prey in the bush.

By ensuring good breeding, the gene pool is kept strong, adding to the value of the KwaZulu-Natal wildlife.

This does not only apply to cheetahs, though. In fact Kwa Cheetah also rescues and rehabilitates servals, meerkats, and many more species that have been hurt or orphaned in the wild. These comprise predator and prey, as well as some birds.

To protect the animals from too much stress and human contact, there is only one interaction session for visitors per day. Part of the session includes an educational talk and watching the animals be themselves in the area that is available to them. Walking with the cheetahs is a fun activity that encourages visitors to enjoy a stroll out in the fresh air and sunshine with some of these magnificent animals (cheetahs willing, of course).
