Since its beginnings, 500 cheetahs – among them many king cheetahs – could be raised in De Wildt and then settled in game reserves in South Africa and other countries. It could be proven that the cheetah bred in captivity do not loose their hunting instinct and are capable of adapting quickly to natural environments.
