Cheetah Conservation Trust CCF
The American Cheetah Conservation Fund maintains a very up-to-date information centre within the Waterberg Conservancy. The cheetahs of Southern Africa might, thanks to the endeavours of the DeWildt centre near Pretoria, not be on the endangered list anymore. Their numbers are, however, still very small. Because cheetahs are diurnally active and sometimes preyed on sheep, they were frequently shot by farmers. The Cheetah Centre lies about 45 kilometres south-east of Otjiwarongo. One can access it via the D2440. Tel 067-306225.
The non-profit organization AfriCat Foundation on the farm Okonjima is dedicated to the protection of the big cats in Africa. Track cheetahs and leopards in their natural environment or visit the Welfare Project of AfriCat. The Africat Foundation is the world's largest Cheetah and Leopard rescue and release program. Over 1000 big cats saved in 18 years, the great majority of them released into the wild. Farm and lodge lie 47 km south of Otjiwarongo. Tel 067-304563.
