“World Renowned International Field Research and Education Facility – Open to the Public”
In addition to being a world-class research and conservation facility, CCF is open to the public every day of the year except Christmas Day. Visitors to CCF can enjoy a variety of activities and experiences, including:
Guided tours of our Center by our staff.
Educational presentations where visitors can watch our resident cheetahs feed and learn more about the cheetah and its race against extinction
A picnic lunch or simply relaxing on our veranda overlooking the magnificent Waterberg Plateau.
Cheetah runs – see our resident cheetahs stretch their legs on our lure course and experience the wonder of watching the world’s fastest land animal in action
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 in accommodations reminiscent of Out of Africa and the colonial comfort of the 1940’s, 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 verandah.
living roomGuests 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 imposing wildlife-themed chandelier. Later, as the sounds of the African night fill the darkness, visitors sleep soundly in sumptuously furnished bedrooms, each of which has its own spacious bathroom equipped with high quality fittings.
