The world's fastest land animal, the cheetah is one of the most specialised members of the cat family and can reach speeds of 70mph. However this beautiful creature is losing its race for survival: once a common animal found on five continents, the cheetah is now an endangered species.
There are believed to be only just over 12,000 cheetahs left in the wild, spread through 25 African countries, of which Namibia’s population of 2,500 is the most important. Loss of habitat and poaching are the main reasons for the cheetah’s decline throughout Africa, and due to cheetah’s high cub mortality rates (up to 90% in the wild) once its population reaches a critical size it will become very difficult to recover.
Friends of Conservation
Explore actively supports Friends of Conservation, the UK fundraising arm of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF). The CCF strive to conserve cheetahs and their habitat and have established in Namibia a highly successful conservation project - developing best practices in research, education, and land use to benefit all species. The CCF conservation project is based near Otjiwarongo, on Namibia’s magnificent Waterberg Plateau. We have the opportunity to visit on two Explore tours.
