WORLD FIRST AS CHEETAH BROTHERS ARE RELOCATED FROM UK TO SOUTH AFRICA
Wildside Magazine|February 2020
Ashia and Mount Camdeboo are partners of the ground-breaking project lead by The Aspinall Foundation to rewild two captive bred cheetah
Two 2.5 year-old cheetahs from Howletts Wild Animal Park, near Canterbury will leave the park on 6th February 2020 for a new life in South Africa.

After a 6,000 mile flight, the pair will first settle in at Ashia’s Cheetah Center in South Africa’s Western Cape before eventually moving to Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve, a 14,000-hectare property in the Great Karoo. There, they will undergo a rewilding process developed and successfully applied by Ashia over the last two years. “We are delighted to welcome these cheetah brothers to our Breeding, Wilding, and Release Program which is already successfully returning captive-born cheetahs into the protected wild of South African game reserves and national parks. So far 9 cheetahs, all born and raised in human care, have been successfully welded and we have high hopes for these siblings!”, says Chantal Rischard, Founder of Ashia.
