The Cheetah Enclosure – 1

Choose a resident cheetah to sponsor

Please become a conservation partner and assist us by covering part or all of the annual costs for caring for these non-releasable cheetahs. Each cheetah costs CCF an estimated £2,500 a year in care. These costs include food, veterinary care and pen maintenance.

If you sponsor the cost of the care of a CCF non-releasable cheetah you will receive two updates during a year (please provide an e-mail address for updates if other than yours). You can also create your own personalised Sponsorship Certificate to print out, and download a special photo poster of your cheetah, taken from the official cheetah ID book in Namibia. Each JPEG poster file is up to 1MB in size and up to 250mm across, and shows pictures of the cheetah, highlighting distinguishing markings for identification. IMPORTANT: If you want the sponsorship to be a gift, be sure to note this using the Message to Seller facility on the main PayPal payment screen.

To create a Sponsorship Certificate or download a poster, be sure to click ‘Return to Merchant’ after you have completed your PayPal transaction, or you will not see our ‘Thank You’ page, which contains the information required.

If you sponsor a cheetah for a whole year (£2,500) you will receive special recognition at our headquarters in Namibia.

Sponsoring is simple! Just click the 'Sponsor Me' button under any cheetah's story. You will be taken to a PayPal secure payment page, where you can choose how much you want to sponsor your cheetah for. See the other pages for more cheetahs.


My sister Dusty and I were born in May 2000, and we arrived at CCF in August 2000, when we were just three months old. We lost our parents and were all alone. Kind Dr. Ulf Tubbesing, a Windhoek veterinarian, brought us to our new home at CCF.

Female cheetahs teach their young vital survival skills, including hunting. Without their mother they lack these survival skills and are unable to live as wild cheetahs.



My sister Blondi and I have lived at CCF since August 2000, when we were three months old and we lost our mummy and daddy. We were brought to our new home by Dr. Ulf Tubbesing from Windhoek.


I was born in January 2000, and I came to CCF for the first time in August 2000 with my sister Nina, when we were 8 months old. We arrived with our mother, whose hind foot had been badly injured by a gin trap. After five months of treatment, all three of us were re-released. But then suddenly, a few weeks later, our mother died - we don't know why. Both my sister and I were caught on Harry Schneider-Waterberg's farm near CCF. We were both very sad and very hungry, but otherwise OK.


I came to CCF in September 2000 when I was just eight weeks old with my two brothers. Our mother was shot in a game camp and we were captured at the age of four weeks. My brothers went to the White Oak Conservation Centre in Florida in 2001.

Game farmers regard cheetah that catch "their" game as a threat, even though game are a cheetah's natural prey. In CCF's initial farm survey, 19% of farmers interviewed were game farmers and these farmers were responsible for 45% of the reported cheetah 'removals.'
