Cheetahs

One of the most interesting large cats is the cheetah, the Ferrari of the animal world, capable of attaining bursts of 75 mph.  There are about 8000 cheetahs in the world, 3500 in Namibia, the site of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) reserve headed by leading cheetah conservationist Dr. Laurie Marker.  The approximately 100,000 acre reserve abuts the Waterberg Nature Conservancy and is home to 37 cheetahs.  About 20 of these cats are within a protected area because of previous habituation to humans.  CCF has recently expanded its accommodations and now offers a great opportunity to see these breathtaking animals up close.
