New School Tour options at The Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre

At the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre, we have developed a new range of choices for your group of learners, Scouts or Voortrekker groups visiting us.

The standard walking tour to see all the animals at the centre has always been very popular, and combining this with other presentations and activities can make the day at the centre more memorable and educational.
