Cheetah Release Program
You will help the local team to release cheetahs who are rehabilitated and ready to go back to the wild. You will be able to take part in this program if you gain sufficient knowledge and training at the project. This is suited for participants who stay for more than 4 weeks with the Cheetah conservation program. The project team will decide who is participating in the releasing events and that will be solely based on your performance and learning during your program. There are no additional costs for this part of the program, you will only be liable to pay for your transport (either flight or bus) to get to the reserve.
If you stay for more than 4 weeks, you are eligible to attend the Release program. However, the Cheetah Release activity is optional and can only be offered depending on the requirements of the conservation project. It may not be available throughout the year.
