CCF’s Cheetah Cafe’ is open daily from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm (08:00 -17:00) and serves locally grown and sourced vegetables, meats and cheeses. The goat milk dairy products on our menu come from the goats on CCF’s Model Farm, which serves as a training facility for local farmers wishing to learn about predator friendly farming techniques and diversify their production. CCF makes delicious goats’ milk ice cream, cheeses (feta, chevre, and ricotta) and fudge. These items are available on our menu and to purchase as a take-away snack.
Cheetah Gift Shop
The Gift Shop, housed within the CCF Visitor Centre, gives visitors the opportunity to engage in a spot of retail therapy. All revenue from the gift shop is reinvested in CCF’s projects, programmes and operations so every postcard and pencil, every cuddly cheetah or sophisticated silver salad server helps CCF to continue it’s mission to save the cheetah in the wild.
The Gift Shop is also the place to go if you would like to sponsor one of our resident rescued cheetahs with the purchase of a CCF sponsorship box. Credit cards accepted, except American Express.
