Cheetah Conservation Fund unveils new features and improvements to enrich the visitor experience

The Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) has experienced an unprecedented increase in visitor numbers to its Research & Education Centre, surpassing pre-pandemic visitation figures. This notable rise in interest highlights a growing commitment to responsible and sustainable tourism, supporting wildlife conservation efforts and involving local communities.

In response to this demand, CCF has introduced several new features and improvements aimed at enriching the visitor experience, including upgraded guest accommodations, the addition of an ice cream bar with local flavours, and an expansion of daily educational activities.

Located outside Otjiwarongo, Namibia, the CCF Visitor Centre and Museum are open daily (except Christmas Day), offering educational opportunities for school children, families and individuals interested in conservation. Facilities include the Cheetah Café, Gift Shop, educational classrooms and a state-of-the-art genetics laboratory providing a comprehensive overview of CCF’s multifaceted approach to saving the cheetah in the wild.

Enhancements to visitor activities and culinary offerings

The CCF has a wide range of daily activities including guided tours of the main facility, cheetah feedings and opportunities to observe the cheetahs during their enrichment sessions at CCF’s Cheetah Run. These activities aim to educate visitors on the cheetahs’ speed, agility and conservation status.

Additionally, the newly introduced ice cream bar at the Cheetah Café features flavours such as cookies and cream, mixed berry and Amarula, alongside milkshakes and fresh goat cheese produced at CCF’s Dancing Goat Creamery.

Upgraded accommodations and commitment to sustainability

Accommodation options have been enhanced to cater to various preferences and budgets, from the serene Cheetah View Lodge with views of the Waterberg Plateau to the luxurious Babson House, offering an intimate experience with nature. These improvements are part of CCF’s ongoing efforts to support conservation through sustainable tourism.

CCF continues its commitment to sustainability, implementing practices such as biomass fuel production, solar energy and hydroponic gardening. These initiatives not only reduce its environmental footprint but also serve as educational models for visitors.

Supporting local economy and artisan craftsmanship

The CCF Gift Shop features a selection of hand-made, fair trade gifts from local artisans, allowing visitors to support the local economy and take a piece of Namibia home. All proceeds from the gift shop contribute to CCF’s conservation, research and education programmes.

As visitor numbers continue to grow, CCF remains dedicated to offering an informative, engaging and sustainable experience for all guests. These enhancements to the Visitor Centre and tourism programmes reflect CCF’s commitment to conservation education and community engagement.
