About Cheetahland at Cango Wildlife Ranch

Cheetahland established in 1988 as a wild cat conservation camp is the oldest and biggest Cheetah contact centre in the world. This sanctuary to Africa's endangered cats is preserved in the Karoo's picturesque town of Oudtshoorn. Here seeing and feeling the cats and their cubs promotes awareness of their plight and population threat.

One hundred Cheetah have been bred here in captivity to ensure their survival. Having been hand reared these cats are familiar with human contact allowing face to face human to cub and human to cheetah encounters for volunteering visitors. Only 3000 Bengal Tigers are left in the world and Cheetahland is home to the first of these cubs born on African soil.

Extinct in nature for over 12 years two rare White Lion cubs can also be seen at this reserve having been rescued and bottle fed to health. The endangered Jaguar cats native to the Americas can also be seen leaping at this ranch. This breeding and conservation project encompasses all magnificent striped and spotted wild cats; check out Cheetahland.
