Cheetah View Lodge
With uninterrupted views of the Waterberg Plateau, the five room Cheetah View Lodge is the ideal setting for travellers who want to witness a world class conservation facility at work. Accommodation fees include breakfast and dinner plus a 15% discount off all cheetah activities, from cheetah drives to the popular cheetah runs. All proceeds from the lodge support the CCF’s continuing efforts to save the cheetah, promote ethical farming and teach coexistence in Namibia.
Our Meal House offers a full service restaurant with an open-air veranda for lounging and wildlife viewing at the purpose-built waterhole. The large family room situated below the Meal House also overlooks the waterhole with similarly breathtaking views of the Waterberg Plateau in the distance.
The two guestroom buildings are split into individual suites each with their own private entrance and porch area.
The four standard suites include a double bedroom, bathroom with shower, and a lounge with sofa to accommodate up to two adults. The family room is larger and comfortably takes up to two adults and two children. Sleeping arrangements consist of two queen beds and one sleeper couch.
For those who wish to experience the world of CCF at the next level, we offer you The Babson House, CCF’s luxurious guest house. Sleeping up to 6 people, guests can enjoy sundowners on a private veranda overlooking the ever-changing colors of the spectacular Waterberg Plateau. Of course, cheetahs are never far away. CCF’s resident cheetahs live only a few meters away and can be watched from the veranda.
Guests may lounge in the deep leather couches in the living room, while a private chef prepares a special meal. Lunch is served on the veranda, while dinner is served at the dining room table beneath an impressive wildlife-themed chandelier. Later, as the sounds of the African night fill the darkness, visitors can retire to sumptuously furnished bedroom suite.
Cheetah Conservation Fund is making great strides toward our commitment to increasing sustainability across our property.
Through our habitat restoration program we are developing biomass fuel production techniques, utilizing overgrown native thornbush. Sites that are clogged with dangerous thornbush are cleared and harvested to create Bushblok, a clean burning fuel log with exceptional energy output. Through this program, supported in part by the European Union grants program, we are able to create energy from material that would otherwise be considered waste.
CCF constructed a new modern and energy efficient Visitor Centre in 2015. The roof was made to be fitted with solar energy panels and development is underway to install solar energy systems to help power our main campus.
Thanks to the generosity of donors we now have a greenhouse and hydroponic garden. A wide variety of vegetables are now grown year-round and on-site.
CCF’s model farm raises dairy goats to assist in predator friendly training for local farmers. The milk produced is made into a wide variety of products in our Dancing Goat Creamery. These delicious products are used by our chefs to create meals for CCF’s guests and staff.
CCF participates in the Greater Waterberg Landscape initiative by helping local conservancy members develop sustainable revenue streams that both compliment and supplement farming. Artisans create handmade crafts like jewelry which are sold in CCF’s gift shop at fair trade prices. These items are also marketed internationally and available at CCF’s fundraising events in the United States, Europe and England.
