Cheetah View Lodge
This is the place to visit if you have any interest in the world's fastest land mammal. The one that gets to 100 km/h in three strides and in as few seconds. The one with it's melancholic tear-stained face (that's the easy way to know it's not a leopard). The name of this lodge gives it away. It's cheetah land.
Opened in June 2017 the lodge is run by the Cheetah Conservation Fund. It's the cheetah that's the lure here. These guys are a non-profit organisation dedicated to saving it from extinction. A world class research facility they study the biology, ecology and genetics. A pleasant and comfortable stay to be sure but the emphasis is definitely on the cat not the basket.
5 en-suite chalets (4 standard rooms & 1 family room) with mountain or waterhole views; bathroom with shower; a la carte restaurant with veranda; purpose-built waterhole, the cheetah sanctuary; cheetah gift shop; communal meals; tea and coffee making facilities.
All that the Cheetah Conservation Fund has to offer including watching the feeding of the ones that can never be released; drives on the reserve; nature drives; and great photographic opportunities. Really great. Professional wildlife snappers seek out this place to capture images of a predator you can never normally get that close to. That says it all.

This is cheetah land. Fierce, fast and furry. No loud, lazy lions. These cats can’t even roar but they do like a good purr. Don’t we all? Pitch your tent in the safe bit Sherlock and check out the work of the AfriCat Foundation.
