Overview

A unique opportunity to experience conservation in action! CCF is the global leader in cheetah research, conservation and education. Its Centre, 44 kms east of Otjiwarongo, is open to the public all year round (8 am-5pm) except Christmas. CCF works to keep cheetahs in the wild and educate the public. However, it provides sanctuary to injured or orphaned cheetahs, many of which cannot be released back in to the wild. Learn about the cheetah's plight, watch them being fed or exercised at high speeds, meet some of our scientists. Our Model Farm teaches farmers how to co-exist with predators. Visitors can meet some of CCF's Livestock Guarding Dogs and their flocks of sheep and goats. You can also try our home-made goat-milk cheese, ice cream or fudge at the Cheetah Cafe. Limited luxury accommodations and camping are available.

I think I had to high expectations. I had booked the cheetah run and behind the scenes tours weeks if not months in advance. Unfortunately this coincided with a visit of a large group. The cheetahs were in the mood for running much on the...More

We visited CCF to show our daughter cheetah (100% guarantee to see them). But what these people do for these animals is really worth to see and pay the entrance fee.

When we arrived we were just in time to see the cheetah feeding. We got excellent information from the guide present at the feeding. Afterwards we did the game drive, which also was quite enjoyable. It was worth the small detour between Waterberg and Etosha.

We booked 2 nights mainly because we wanted to try and photograph the cheetahs running on consecutive mornings. Whilst the accommodation is of a good quality it was apparent that CCF had only just started to offer this facility as there were many shortcomings in...More

Wonderful to see the cheetahs so close. We did the standard tour but did see a cheetah run whilst chasing a truck. Really educational and terrific to hear about the great work

They do a great job over here. They have also a project near Etosha to save the lions. This is a stunning reserve with great activities!

Yes, we actually got to interact with the cats up at the house as they have been handled since they were Cubs, including touching/petting them. They also come over and sniff and lick you, it's an amazing experience.
