Cheetah Conservation in Namibia

Current Location

Otjiwarongo, Namibia

Big cat lover? Journey to Namibia to see how the Cheetah Conservation Fund is helping the world's fastest land mammal survive in the midst of increased human-wildlife conflict in Africa. 


The Cheetah Conservation Fund's center in Namibia is a collection of 10 farms, all linked together, that cover an area of 222 square miles (or 575 square kilometers)!


Human/wildlife conflict is when people or communities and animals share the same environment, and issues arise from the shared space. Cheetahs face several kinds of human/wildlife conflict.

Field Notes

Transportation around the cheetah capital of the world is fairly easy. The most common way to get around here is by car or public transportation, which is supported by Namibia's road networks.
