Western Cape Cheetah Conservation
The Western Cape Cheetah Organisation (WCCC) was founded in 2001 in an effort as noble as the big cat itself. The cheetah has become the most endangered big cat in the wild and the WCCC aims to rehabilitate cheetahs through their programmes at Inverdoorn Game Reserve and Iziba Safari lodge, while enabling these graceful creatures to live in their natural environment.
At Inverdoorn Game Reserve and Iziba Safari Lodge, guests are encouraged to meet the cheetahs and learn more about them. The encounters foster education and awareness about the plight of the cheetah. Loss of habitat and inter-breeding have led to a vast decline in cheetah populations and the WCCC aims to save the cheetah through raising awareness, as well as implementing specialised breeding programmes that pair up unrelated cheetahs in an effort to retain the widest possible range of genes in the cheetah gene pool. Guests are able to view wild cheetahs while on safari; personally encounter our tame cheetahs (strictly dependant on the weather), view them being put through their daily exercises and gain further insight – all in an enduring hope to save the cheetah.
