A bit off the main road, this facility offers a chance to see cheetahs up close. Best time to go is at feeding time, since the cheetahs that they allow to be around humans are fed at that time. If you miss feeding time you...More

Well worth a side trip on the way back to Windhoek or if you are staying at one of the nearby lodges. While in captivity the Cheetahs are beautiful to see up close and personal.

We had a stop at CCF and took the Cheetah drive into the large enclosure where 5 Cheetahs were kept. We got to hear their stories and saw them being fed and health checked. Very good information, dedicated staff and nice facilities. 45 min drive...More

N$200 each entrance to view the cheetahs, Analanian shepherd dogs, small museum, film and 2:00 p.m. feeding. Yes, the money does go to a good cause, but it was quite a way off the main road and probably not worth the visit. The staff were...More

There are only a few rooms here and they are often booked, but so worthwhile. Rooms are comfortable and food and service is fine. As for which tours to book, the best (and most pricey) is the "behind the scenes tour". You get to ride...More

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.
